Bach, Getzen, Shires

Unique C cornet, made from three manufacturors. This horn began as a cut down Getzen Eterna Bb cornet, copied from Charlie Schleuter's C cornet. (Principal Trumpet, Boston Symphony).
I later decided to add a Bach 37 cornet bell. This bell adds a slightly more focused, projecting sound, so it is great in the orchestra, when you need to keep up with the trombones on Berlioz, etc. 

To make it even more user-friendly, I experimented with several leadpipes and found that a C trumpet leadpipe works great, again focusing the tone and projection but keeping the richness of the cornet.
The leadpipe/tuning slide are both both Steve Shires. Absolutely excellent response and center. Another plus, the horn takes a trumpet mouthpiece as seen (but not included) in the picture.

So in short, this horn is a mutt, but a real nice mutt. I'm selling because I had two C cornets literally fall in my lap ( a Schilke and a Bach). No one, not even a junkie like me, needs three C cornets.
If you are interested I am also selling the original Getzen bell in a separate auction.
