These are great playing and sounding horns - the LA Olds horns are quite popular among vintage horn players and were one of the most popular horns of their time. This particular horn has been in raw brass for quite some time. No slide rings but honestly I have never used them on the Olds Super Cornet I have of my own.
It still has many years of playing ahead of it though!
This is a slightly newer model and most cornet mouthpieces will fit in nicely.
Evidence of repair work done prior to our ownership on the bell.
Quick valves that play well with Berp Bio Oil.
No case or mouthpiece included
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
