Weird, above is a Verreijt Subliem cornet from Utrecht, The Netherlands, that in fact is a stencil made by the (big) Belgium builder Van Engelen from Lier, Belgium. It is nickelplated and the (bottomsprung) valves are reasonable tight but also a little noisy and scraggy. And it has an odd receiver, I suppose something like the old Olds receiver so I play it with a Yamaha 14FL flügelhorn mouthpiece, that inserts good though it wobbles a bit.
But the horn is becoming more and more a favourite, a beautiful sweet sound, nice sweet reponse and quite a good intonation. So it's now more in use than my Getzen Eterna and the other ones. And it gets more time than my Selmer and Yamaha trumpets. Nice horn with something special. The tower in the logo is the famous Domtower in Utrecht, built between 1321 and 1382, height 112 meter, seen on the photo above.
It won't show the trumpet pic!
seems that I have to make new pictures
