Bruno

About the maker:

This is a cornet made by Bruno (year unknown), serial number 38605.
It does have an extra bend/slide where the main tubing comes out of the valve block towards the bell. This is sometimes seen on American cornet models from the early to mid 20th century. However, I am not exactly sure if this is truly a cornet. The mouthpiece receiver is too large for a real cornet mouthpiece, but too small for a real trumpet mouthpiece. There was a leak in the main tuning slide that I have patched up with a drop of solder. Compression is not very good, but it is playable with heavy valve oil. Not a very good player though.
