Vintage Martin Handcraft Imperial cornet from circa 1941!
One of my absolutely favorite Vintage horns ever made! Medium Step Bore #2. Check out the all-original condition with rebuilt valves and smooth slides. Right around the same era as the most desired Handcraft Committee (I personally like the HCI's over the committee horns).
It has a beautiful sound, tight valves for it's age (with Hetman classic they work great), and a superb sound.
The horn plays with a slightly more compact sound than a modern horn but is funky and cool.
Very much like a classic Martin Trumpet feel. The pics on the web store show the overall condition pretty well.
There's some plating wear and signs of usage but for a 80-year old horn it's very good!
Sold with no case but does include the very rare Martin #1 Cornet mouthpiece (most likely original to the instrument).
