    I still have the instrument featured in the linked thread. I believe now that it is essentially a cornet. I still play it occasionally and it plays quite well.

    Nothing is more contagious or tenacious than music. Once you are exposed it gets inside you and you can never get rid of it. It is also non-discriminating. It can be Ride of the Valkyries, In a Gadda da Vida, the Jeopardy 15 second thinking tune, your most disliked commercial jingle - it doesn't matter. Once triggered, off you go, like it or not.

    I remembered about this thread because I was looking for information about an instrument like yours. It is marked Ludwig | Standard | St. Louis | Mo like the one on horn-u-copia. Instrument Specifications where instrument="Cornet" and maker="Ludwig "
    I believe now that it was made by the Elkhart Band Instrument Co. http://www.trumpetmaster.com/vb/f140...ber-80039.html (Elkhart Band Instrument Co - Serial Number dating System Study)

    S/N is 890 (the "9" looks like a backwards "P" and is valve 2)

    and THANKS for the welcome!

    Re: "Easy Play" branded trumpet?

    So the little Easy Play is cleaning up quite nicely, but I have a question for anyone who's done lots of polishing:
    As I'm sure some of you have had the experience it would be nice to have a third (or fourth) hand to hold an instrument still with to be able to then have the other two free to put a cloth through and run it back and forth between the valve casings and all around the little nooks and crannies.
    Any suggestions about workbench clamping methods (gentle of course!) to help with this?

    and here's where we are so farIMG_4422.jpg

    Find a round, tapered wood piece (like an old chair leg) and clamp it in a vice. Slide the bell over it and you're set to polish with two hands. The wood may need a little work first to somewhat match the taper to the bell, though.
