Just recently discovered this site. I have lots of interests in several areas concerning trumpets. Played a lot prior to 1980. Let it slide and started practicing again last year. Results have been good. Currently playing F Horn also with a commmunity band. I own a mid 80s Model 37, a 1925-30 vintage H. N. White, a 1920 or earlier Conn cornet with a B flat to C rotary valve and several other antiques in fair condition. My question is about the White. I bought it last summer from the original owner's wife. She is in her 90's. Condition is near perfect. It is clearly marked on the valve casing as "King made by H. N. White, Cleveland, . It's silver plated (SN-93***). My specific question concerns the engraving on the bell. It says it was fabricated in Paris, France. It's a "plain Jane" horn with virtually no engraving except that I've mentioned. It is my understanding that all White trumpets were totally American from stem to stern. Anybody ever seen one like this. It is a "pea-shooter" which is toned down by a "Karl Fuchs 6 (circa 1905) MP. A Bach 5 works well also. Your comments are welcome.
