Notes and Quotes

193x catalog:

An instrument with the true cornet quality of tone, exceptionally easy blowing, an abundance of volume, and a well balanced scale in both the high and low registers. Sturdily constructed of the best quality seamless tubing, insuring many years of satisfactory service. Comfortable grip, lightweight rapid action valves; the greatest value ever offered in a cornet at this price.
