These are great playing and sounding horns - these Olds  Super  horns are quite popular among vintage horn players and were one of the most popular horns of their time. This particular horn is in fabulous shape with the  exception of some minor lacquer wear.   Super fun horn!

It still has many years of playing ahead of it though!

This is an older model, so it will accept the Olds mouthpieces, but it might have trouble accepting modern cornet shank. 


It has some dents (see pictures) and plating loss. One of the pearl inlays is also cracked. 


Quick valves that play well with most oils.


No case or mouthpiece included

From Olds:

Streamlined for power and beauty, the SUPER Cornet is a custom-crafted instrument of unlimited flexibility, ease of blowing and rich, resonant tone.
The streamlined form and bracing means easier handling: the smooth action is effortless, fast and dependable. The "Tone Control Band" construction insures power without blasting. Valves are nickel silver and special nickel allow is used throughout all contact points of the SUPER Cornet
