Ok, there are actually two parts to this question. 1) I was reading the other day, Clive Cussler's "Raise the Titanic". Excellent book. In it, he references to a Graham Farley, who was supposedly a solo cornetist onboard the Titanic, and that he played a presentation grade Boosey and Hawkes cornet made around 1911 or so. Would anyone happen to know if this is actually valid information? 2) I know Boosey and Hawkes was a real company. Anyone know if they were ever any good? Personal experience?
