    Stuffy valves but with great oilling for 2 days it works fabulously!
    Mine's Silver because I love silver horns.
    High register is a little sharp so looking for a leadpipe or shank for it.
    Bb Cute and handy little piece of work.
    If all was in tune could've taken to Wagner.

    Well, if we're limited to just one, it would have to be this one:

    The 1951 Olds Recording Model cornet I bought new and have played since 7th grade. Robb Stewart did the masterful restoration, with an assist from his mystery master engraver. It's even more attractive when paired with the matching 1950 trumpet (a much more recent acquisition) they also restored.

    My 1974 Bach Stradivarius 43*. I purchased it in 1976. It's been with me through high school, college, and beyond. It was restored about 3 years ago by Kanstul.

    My favorite horn is still my 1993 large bore Bach Stradivarius 184G (gold brass bell) with the "Bach Stradivarius Deluxe" engraving. I enjoy playing it more than any other horn I own, and it's pretty to look at, too...
