    Here's one to add to my list for best cornet I've ever played.

    I used to have a pristine Conn 84A in a (original) satin gold plate finish.

    I don't know what it was about that horn, but it was perfect for me. The sound was nice, it felt easy to play...the whole nine yards.

    I sold it to help fund my Schlub horn and I have regretted it since. I'd love to track it down and get it back.

    My favorite horn is my 1971 King Silver Flair. It's better then any present day super horn that is made today. It's more horn then I will ever need !

    For decades it was my Martin Committee-now that I've been playing my Schilke Handcraft I'm not looking back. I have a HC2 copper bell) on the way...

    My Scodwell is unlike any other horn that I have ever played. I have played Monettes and every other high-end horn that has ever been made and the Scodwell is it walking away.

    IMG_1391.JPG My 1920 Sherwood (Conn Stencil) is working its way up the list. $62 including a case and shipping. It was held together with tieraps. Another 50 bucks to repair and I have a great horn!!

    A 1980 Bach 43LT with 43 leadpipe. A 2005 Yamaha 8310Z. A 1964 Connstellation 38B. And I still own them. The other is a gold plated Schilke 3X. I played it at a NYC Brass Conference back in the late ‘90’s. I loved it until I saw the price tag. At the time I could not afford it. It played great!

    Until last night it would have been either my Holton 48 or the King Liberty 2B, but, I had the opportunity to play my near new Carol Brass 7660 for the first time. What a great horn. Using a Bach 1and1/2 C M.P, it projected wonderfully, dynamics were a breeze. It was just a lovely thing to play. It may be just the "new horn" thing, but...
