This is a rare Olds "The Olds" Bb Cornet in grear original shape! This 1939 (S/N 59xx) cornet has only about 10% lacquer loss and very little damage in its long lifespan! The original valves have just a little plating wear that does not affect the valve action at all, and still has great compression! This Olds plays about as good as it looks! The has a gorgeous dark sound like its lacquer but brightens up as soon as you open it up a little! This horn is every collector's dream! The earlier Olds cornets only take the larger Olds cornet shank mouthpieces, so modern mouthpieces would not fit. The cheapest alternative is a Bach/Small Morse flugelhorn mouthpiece. Comes with original Olds case too!
