Leaving the frozen rock in Alaska at the end of January headed for the Seattle Boat Show. While I am there, I thought I would take the opportunity to shop for a new cornet.
Not that I need one. My current instrument is more than adequate, I suppose, given my skill level. It is a basic student model, a Cuesenon Lafayette that was already old when I acquired it fifty years ago. I had it refurbished several years ago so it is in excellent condition. Still, you know how it is; and I am sure no one here will fault me for wanting another horn even if I can't play up to the limits of the one I already have.
I'm hoping to get some recommendations of where to shop for a new or nice vintage horn in Seattle, WA. Also any recos on musicians to go see or teachers to contact while I am there. I will be staying in the Queen Anne area.
