Price : US $800.00
I bought this 1955(c) Olds Recording Cornet about a month ago on impulse, primarily because of its pristine condition. This rare Fullerton Olds cornet #179114 has been beautifully restored. It has been silverplated AND lacquered and shows no evidence of past repair. The engraving on the bell is sharp, clear, and deep. The valves show almost no wear and are very tight. Compression is excellent. This cornet is in perfect condition both mechanically and cosmetically. There are no issues with this horn.
However, the tone is absolutely gorgeous and very warm. Intonation is flawless and the sound is very open especially in the high register.
The Olds Recording cornet comes with an original case that has a second compartment large enough to hold a trumpet. I am including a Olds vintage 3 cornet mouthpiece since this cornet does require a large shank mouthpiece. I had Bob Osmun custom make me an adaptor for my Monette cornet mouthpiece which also will be included.
This cornet is a rare find and in pristine shape like this almost never. You will not be dissapointed!
