Hello!
I just joined this community. In my search for information about vintage istruments, I have several times followed links to Horn-U-Copia.
I have therfore decided to be a member, to have full access to the information and knowledge available here. Maybe I also can contribute. I am a cornetplayer, and play 1920's jazz, inspired by the great cornetists Mitchell, Oliver, Bix, and of course, Armstrong.

Hello Horn-U-Copia,

My wife and I played trumpet/cornet in high school about 30 years ago, though I never was any good.  Seven years ago we bought a beautiful old cornet at an antique store for $60. Our nostalgic intent was to hang it on the wall as a decoration.  Of course, we had to play with it first.  I was instantly hooked on our new 1912 Conn New Invention in mint condition.  I've been obsessed with collecting vintage brass ever since.  My research into what I have and what I'd like to get keeps leading me to you guys, so here I am.  Look forward to learning with you.

Thanks,

Hello!
I stumbled over this site while searching information about saxhorns. Playing tuba and saxhorn basse and teaching euphonium and trombone as a freelance musician I am addicted to old instruments, especially french ones. It's nice to see that I'm not the only "brass head"!
Greetings to you all,
Helmut

Hi!  Smiley I'm Michael, and I live in Chandler, IN. I recently found an antique (c. 1890) trombone on Ebay, bid on it and won it!  Cool

Hello, I was searching for information on a vintage York Tenor Saxophone and came across this site. What a great resource and storehouse (my generation's word for database) of knowledge. I bought an old York Sax and am looking to get some idea on age. The sax only has York engraved on it and a 3 digit serial number stamped on it. our adventure begins. Looking to learn from everyone, thanks.

Hi! I don't know if you've come across this site:

http://forum.saxontheweb.net/forum.php

It's one of the best for the sax.

Hello,

I joined the site in order gain a little more knowledge about my old trumpet.
It's a Buescher 'True Tone' Model No. 232 (Aristocrat). The serial No. is 282301 so, as far as I have been able ascertain, this means it was made sometime around 1937-'38.
I bought this in 1962, here in the UK, from an ex professional who played with the Ted Heath big band (amongst others) during the '50s.

Check out our Buescher sections.  A couple of the guys are pretty up on Bueschers, so if things are still unclear, they should be able to help.

Hi!
Just joined the board, and am completing registration. I collect old cornets - have about 160-170 different ones. Looking for odd bits of information, parts, and contacts.
Gerry

160-170! I no longer feel any guilt or embarrasment over the number of cornets in my collection. Smiley Next one to arrive in the mail, I'll tell my very patient wife that the collection I have doesn't amount to a hill of beans. Welcome aboard Gerry! I'm looking forward to hearing about your stable.

We all need more space!! I wish I had played a cornet, they are so small and cute and easy to store. But I really love euph's.
