Holton Stratodyne Cornet, Serial #380634. I don't think the bell is solid copper, but it appears to be at least mostly copper.
The Stratodyne was Holton's top-of-the line, artist model cornet or trumpet.
Features first valve trigger and third valve dump slide. All slides pull. Compression is good for an instrument of this age, though compression is best if you use a heavier slide oil and valve oil (such as Hetman's Classic Piston). I replaced the pads and felts two years ago. Lacquer is above average for a horn this vintage, and is mostly complete. The bell gives you a nice dull "thud" when you tap it. It shows signs of previous dent repair (copper bells are somewhat fragile). One small ding in the lead pipe, and a flat spot on the bell bow and a couple small flat spots where the bell meets the first valve.Bell engraving is good and legible. The case is in only fair to poor condition.I'll include a Bach 7c mouthpiece.
This cornet has a sweet mellow sound, especially if you are using a deeper mouthpiece (as you should on a cornet). Would make a great restoration candidate, but it is perfectly playable just as it is. Why am I selling it? Because I found another Stratodyne in somewhat nice cosmetic condition, but with a rose-brass bell.
I'll deliver this horn cleaned and lubricated to your U.S. address.
I do accept returns, but you pay return shipping.
I'll start the sale at 99 cents. Who knows--maybe lightening will strike and you'll end up stealing it from me!
