Getzen 300-Series Cornet

ca. 1975

This Getzen student-model cornet was discovered stuck in a door frame of burned house in McAllen, Texas in 2008. The instrument was restored to playing condition by Thomas Barbry of New Orleans, Louisiana. While the valves are original to the instrument, two of the original valve caps are missing. The replacement caps were selected to match the green velvet cushion on the remaining original valve cap.
