Pros: Easy and enjoyable
Cons: Third valve needs to be oiled often.

 
I got this cornet on Ebay. Nice tone. It dates from 1937 so it's a little beat up. The third valve has a tendancy to be a little sluggish if I don't oil it daily.

Pros: Bright fun tone and easy to play - Quality builyt, plating 95%
Cons: People laugh at the hourglass tuner until they hear it

 
The horn is great for dixieland and just fun playing. It has a large bore thaat handles everything from soft and easy to blazing screams. It is easy to lip this horn for slurs and effects. Some people do not like this ability but it does give the horn a little more flexibility. The weak spot on the older horns is the valve plating even so if maintained they hold up very well.

Pros: Easy to play, fun, sweet sounding with good projection
Cons: not quite as easy to reach the higher range as some others

 
Excellent instrument.. easy to play, easy to bend notes. I use a conn 4 mp and have the hour glass all the way in and it's reasonably bright and definately able to cut through a folk band when pushed and into a mic.. that might sound easy but the guy I leant it to at the time was playing a respectable trumpet before his 2nd valve jammed and not cutting through as much. With the hour glass tuner further out and a deeper mp it can really play mellower and a bit darker. Worth mentioning that the hour glass tuner is rather like what's now called a "tuneable bell" :)
I really like it overall and for the money it's good value.
