Another Rare Instrument at ACB: The Olds Recording Cornet!
We managed to get our hands on a rare Olds Recording cornet for you! This instrument is from the 1965-66 range and it's a lot of fun to play. Sadly there is some damage throughout the horn but playability is still pretty good. It's a really nice sounding cornet! The tuning trigger on the bell is a lot of fun, and it's a feature you don't see very often. Put every pitch precisely where you want it, and experiment with pitch bending and microtonal effects in your solos. And of course you also get the ergonomic Recording valve block with the offset second valve!
