I just payed for my first cornet....this may seems odd for a pro but till recently I was always borrowing cornets from band, friends and teachers when I needed them, 'cause I don't play often on cornet. But since I came back to Bulgaria there was no one around to boorow a cornet from. So I bought one from ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300072300542 It needs a buit of repair, but seems nice to me. On my final recital, one year ago I used an old french cornet (it was marked Lammar on the bell, but I have found no information about) which I borrowed from Murray Greig (Royal Northern College of Music). I liked that much that I asked Murray to sell it to me, but he wouldn't. So I started to look on ebay for a vintage horn on a bargain price...What do you think guys? was it worthed? I will receive the cornet only in 4-5 weeks time, when I will post a short review with my first impressions...Till now I was using Denis Wick 4W cornet mouthpiece...How do you think it will fit playingwise with the Olds Ambassador?
