1930's King Silvertone Cornet
You are offerding on a 1930's King Silvertone cornet made
by the H.N. White Company of Cleveland, Ohio. The serial number is
224872. The horn is stamped "Medium Bore". The
valves move freely, and this plays easily. Photos of the three
valves are included, and the valves are marked with the same serial number
as horn. The micro-adjuster works, and moves easily. I tried to get a
photo of the inside of the valve bores, they are clean and
Model No. 1065, as best I can determine.
Operationally, this is in great shape. I have asked
a band director and two trumpet players to test drive it, and all gave it
a thumbs-up for playability and sound.
Cosmetically, there are no dents or dings. I
hesitate to say that about a horn this age, but there really aren't any
that I see, and I wear reading glasses. If you can find one, it'll
be mighty tiny, and your eyes will be much better than mine.
Finish looks good. I have not cleaned or
polished this cornet, except on the bell where the art deco engraving
is. The gold on the engraving looks 100%. The inside of the
bell is gold. A thorough cleaning and polishing is needed, but I
will leave that to the preference of the buyer. Most of the cornet is
heavily tarnished, as is to be expected from a cornet that has not been
played in over 30 years (until just recently).
Original leather case. Handle and latch are
good. The leather straps are gone. The hinge is bad.
Twop mouthpieces included, a King M2, and an HN
White 38. The HN White 38 is also marked "Del Staiger".
There are lots of photos here, and they are the best
guide to the condition and appearance of this horn. As such, they
are part of the description.
I've done my best to provide a good description and
good photos, because I want you to really understand how this plays,
feels, and looks. I've tried to anticipate your questions. If I've
missed one, please send your question through the message
system. I'll do my best to answer, but questions on the last day or
in the last hours of the sale may not get seen in time for a good
H.N. White serial number list can be found here.
HN White cornet collection can be seen here. This will give you
a good idea of what this looked like when new.
