    i have a pretty beat up old ambassador cornet. it however has great valves, fast and with very good compression, much better than my other trumpets.
    my question is are the valve blocks on the olds trumpets and cornets the same.

    thats a shame was about to fire up the workshop and build me a horn. Built a couple of copper coaching horns when i was at school. so could have been fun. will keep a look out for a trashed olds trumpet and repair the cornet.
