Elkhart Indiana Cornet
This is a beautifully instrument made by the Band inst Co Indiana. I would think it hales from around the 1940’s and with its underslung tuning slide arrangement it bears great similarity to the King Master. It also blows in a similar manner but with bottom sprung valves the valve action is shorter.The bell is heavily engraved and the whole thing is super and my current choice of cornet. it has been de lacquered cleaned and given a protective coat to reduce the risk of tarnishing.
I am loath to sell this item at the moment but mighty arm wrestle at around £295
