    He shouldn't have been playing in a minor key either.

    A minor accident by a miner playing in a minor key in a minor mine.

Here’s my favorite of the bunch - a Buffet Crampon with its original case! I only gave it a chem clean - no damage at all other than some missing lacquer and reglueing a couple of spots in the case. Plays incredibly well! Supposedly built for Buffet by Courtois, but I’m unable to find out more about it, so not sure of the year. The caps and water keys are total Selmer copies, but built much heavier. It’s a heavy horn with a wide grip, and a hell of a player!

    Here’s how it really went. He was playing that cornet at the bottom of the elevator shaft, and at the time he was a fine miner. The cable broke to the elevator, and he was A flat minor.

    For the record, I sold the Recording, but not before fitting those slide bumpers. The buyer deserves to have a fully equipped horn, even if I don't like rubber bumpers on my slides personally.
    Thanks for showing me the error of my ways!

    That is the coolest looking horn I have ever seen! How does it play?

    It is a great horn, not quite as good as my Super Recording (keeping within the Olds world) but definitely up there!
