A beautiful 1896 vintage H.N White "The King" Combination Cornet in Bb and C. Serial number 900, this cornet was made during the first 3- 4 years of the H.N White Company! A great design for having one instrument to play in multiple keys, extensions to A not included. Has the classic "lions head" engraving above the serial number on the valve block, truly a piece of brass instrument history. This cornet has been replated at some point in its career, but has been done well. Original valves work great with berp bio oil #3. Used w/ case, mouthpiece, and Bb crook.
