all tough questions. I don t specifically know for the getzen, but I would first look for the serial around where the two pieces join. I think most soprano trombones use a trumpet mouthpiece, but some use a cornet mouthpiece. A case - other than one that...

Antique Musical Instruments: conn trumpet
Red rot is a problem that occurs with brass instruments, but it is maybe more feared than deserved. Both deterioration from the outside which you can see, and deterioration from the inside which you can t see until it has eaten complete through are referred...

Antique Musical Instruments: Holton 1917, Revelation special edition trombone
I think the word you can t read is, Co. Before manufactures started adding counter weights to their instruments as a part of the design, they were offered as after-market items. I believe in 1917 it would be an aftermarket item. The Specials were a...

Antique Musical Instruments: york and sons silver trombone
That s an interesting question. I don t have a York price list from 1912 - the age of this trombone. The oldest price list I have is for Holton in 1926. The price for a Holton of comparable quality was about $100 in 1926, and controlling for inflation between...

Antique Musical Instruments: Antique Brass "The New Jenkins Special" Trumpet
It isn t certain when the Jenkins company started in Kansas City Mo., but its founder John Woodward Jenkins died in 1890. The Jenkins company were dealers, not makers of instruments. They purchased instruments from Czecholslovakia as well as domestic product...

Antique Musical Instruments: Buescher Valve Trombone
I have a Buescher Valve Trombone a little older than yours. It plays amazingly well for a horn of its age and assuming yours in good condition, I would expect that it plays well. I m particularly impressed with the quality of the valves. Yours dates to...

Antique Musical Instruments: E flat Alto Horn Marked Goumat & Co Paris
There was no authentic maker called Goumat. I m not sure how they got away with putting Paris on them. I ve seen speculation that they shipped them from Czechoslovakia, through France. But don t know that to be the case. The closest actual maker in Paris...

Antique Musical Instruments: lyon&healyslide trombone
I don t think you are going to find one. And, even if you did, it wouldn t provide any information. Most of Lyon and Healy instruments were imported, and made by a variety of makers. Only a small proportion of L&H instruments have meaningful serial...

Antique Musical Instruments: Carl Fischer Baritone Horn, valve casings, serial number list
valve casings, serial number list, baritone horn: Carl Fischer marketed its on line of imported instruments. They didn t make them themselves, until the 1940s when they acquired the York company. It is unlikely that the 9 is a serial number. Are there numbers on the other valve casings? If so, it is just...

Antique Musical Instruments: Conn 40H Trombone, professional instrument, script letters
professional instrument, script letters, appropriate weight: They were nice horns, a professional instrument intended for the dance band. They are not real rare, but still a nice horn. You are not likely to find a vintage counterweight except on another horn of the period, but if you are just wanting the weight,...

Antique Musical Instruments: Weymann E flat Tuba, school music programs, tuba players
school music programs, tuba players, keystone state: Weymann was apparently a dealer, not a maker of instruments. He must have been pretty successful as he was in business from the 1860 s into the 1940s. Horns made by other than the seller tend to have less value. He used the Keystone name in the later years....

Antique Musical Instruments: Antique silver bugle, silver bugle, rathbone place
silver bugle, rathbone place, antique musical instruments: I don t know what the Assay office used to establish the date. But, my records, The New Langwill Index and the Grove Dictionary do not have any reference to any maker by the name of Kessel other than MJH Kessel. And, I have looked over the bugle histories...

Antique Musical Instruments: Boston Musical Instrument Manufy., serial number list, musical instrument
serial number list, musical instrument, many thanks: I only have suspicions. I suspect that Boston had serials for their instruments, but they may not have actually marked their instruments with the number in the early years. If you look at the serial number list for Boston which begins in 1880 with the number...

Antique Musical Instruments: Elkhart Trombone age, buescher, band instrument
buescher, band instrument, instrument co: Well, the first difficulty is which Elkhart Company. I can t really ready the engraving from the picture, but the Elkhart Musical Instrument Co. merged into Martin in 1917. The Elkhart Band Instrument Co. merged into Buescher in 1928. Then to further confuse...

Antique Musical Instruments: Euphomium, conn company, middle key

Antique Musical Instruments: Grand Rapids Musical Instrument Company, production dates, address thanks
production dates, address thanks, instrument company: There is really no way to establish the age of Grand Rapids instruments, and that is particularly so for bugles, and there is no certainty that they were in the numbering sequence of other brass instruments. We have been trying to develop serial lists for...

Antique Musical Instruments: Hawkes and Son, picadilly circus london, clippertone
picadilly circus london, clippertone, cornets: As you have noted, 1930 would be the high end for this horn and 1895 when that street address is correct is the low end. Every so often, a Hawkes horn with an out-lier number pops up. I have no explanation for those. The serial numbers were up to 11177...

Antique Musical Instruments: old trombone, low pitch, high pitch
low pitch, high pitch, bell curve: That horn dates to 1924. It has what is known as in-slide tuning. The purpose of the in-slide tuning was to allow for more conical tubing - and therefore a more mellow sound. It could be one of several models that were available that year. One thing...

Antique Musical Instruments: Silver Reynolds Baritone (Euphonium?), bassoon player, brass world
bassoon player, brass world, world war ii: Terry is sounds like it might be a horn that was made for use by the military during World War II. The distinction between a baritone and an euphonium is a nebulous one. My own personal definition is whether it s tuning slide is before or after the valves....

Antique Musical Instruments: Vintage composite eclipse clarinet, brasswinds, educated guess
brasswinds, educated guess, brass instruments: I don t normally respond to woodwind question because that is not my area, but I will use my records of makers to make an educated guess on this one. The only makers I know of that used Eclipse as a model were Slater (but I believe he only made brasswinds)...

Antique Musical Instruments: Antique Buescher Eb tuba, intonation and pitch, low pitch
intonation and pitch, low pitch, vintage instruments: Two parts to this issue: About the only place you are likely to find a mouthpiece is on eBay. And, even then it will probably take some patience and some luck. I have found that intonation and pitch on vintage instruments is better with a vintage mouthpiece....

Antique Musical Instruments: picola cornet, eb cornet, maggie maggie
eb cornet, maggie maggie, pepper: Maggie, I m pretty sure it is not a piccolo cornet. It is more likely a pocket cornet or an Eb Cornet. I would like to see a picture of it, then I could better determine what it is. I would also like to know how you are able to determine that he...

Antique Musical Instruments: trombone Hawkes, picadilly circus london, low pitch
picadilly circus london, low pitch, engraving: Sorry, thought I had already answered this. Hawkes made insrument starting in 1876, and in 1930 he merged with Boosey. This one dates to around 1925. LP indicates that it is pitched at low pitch (modern pitch) I am not familiar with Chapman nor the...

Antique Musical Instruments: Wurlitzer "Lyric" Tenor Trombone, lyric tenor, conn usa
lyric tenor, conn usa, low pitch: Seems like there were some makers that used inserts to convert from high pitch to low pitch. But is is also likely that they are an aftermarket item to convert from high pitch to low pitch. The slide lock would tend to be associated with later models, but...

Antique Musical Instruments: Buescher 5-valve Double Bell Euphonium, double bell euphonium, quarter master
double bell euphonium, quarter master, disrepair: I believe that the O in USOMC is really a Q. As in United States Quarter Master Corps. It would then be an instrument purchased by the government for military use. The question of the restoration of the instrument, is more complex. If you would like to...

Antique Musical Instruments: Date of Trombone, serial number list, pedler
serial number list, pedler, good shape: It is not going to be possible to determine the date of manufacture from the serial number.

Antique Musical Instruments: Columbia silver Trumpet, low pitch, silver trumpet
low pitch, silver trumpet, high pitch: It is Jay not Gay. The extra tubing could be a couple of options the instrument was designed for. One is that at the beginning of the 20th century, there were two pitch standards, high pitch and low pitch. Makers would sometimes make horns that could play...

Antique Musical Instruments: old instruments, check ebay, model instrument
check ebay, model instrument, ebay: The cornet is a Collegiate, which is a student model instrument. I m not sure what Bass Trombone you have. I m wondering whether it might be a re-branded Yamaha. They should be worth selling. Check eBay for similar horns for an idea of what they are...

Antique Musical Instruments: Buescher 5 Valve Double Bell Euphonium, double bell euphonium, decent condition
double bell euphonium, decent condition, mouthpieces: I would suggest either machining down an adapter or a actual mouthpiece with an European shank assuming you want to stay with a modern mouthpiece. The other option, which may actually the better choice would be to find a mouthpiece from about the same period...

Antique Musical Instruments: F.E. Olds Trombone, outer slides, standard model
outer slides, standard model, serial number: If I understand correctly, I believe that you are describing an in-slide tuning mechanism. The rod and locking wheel were to hold the horn at the desired pitch. The slide is made up of the typical inner and outer slides. But in addition, there is a third...

Antique Musical Instruments: JW Pepper Baritone, piston valves, jw pepper
piston valves, jw pepper, model name: Perfected was just a model name - it had no particular significance. Pepper started selling instruments in 1877, and from the beginning. But with the assistance of Henry Distin, they also added instruments of their own manufacture, to those that they...

Antique Musical Instruments: old silver trumpet, old trumpet, silver trumpet
old trumpet, silver trumpet, music dealer: I have an image of a Sir Walter Cornet in our database, but don t know anything about it. I have to assume that it is a store brand name for a music dealer.

Antique Musical Instruments: Victory USA cornet, valve casing, oliver ditson
valve casing, oliver ditson, model name: Primarily The Oliver Ditson company used the model name Victory. So, I would suspect it may have been one of his products. However, his products usually listed Boston for a location. If it is a Ditson, it would date back to the 1930 s or earlier. ...

And, in the first part of the 20th Century, they prospered. But then the company began to decline and was in near bankruptcy in...

Antique Musical Instruments: Sousaphone, imported instruments, mogavero
imported instruments, mogavero, jaubert: This horn has a couple of things against it. Jaubert were durable old imported instruments, but they don t command a lot of respect or interest. In addition I suspect this horn is in the key of Eb which few people play anymore and it may be pitched higher...

Sorry for the delay. I was away from home and failed to advise AllExperts of that fact. I have no information on Harrison and Nixon. Keats was a bugle maker that was established by 1856. They were awarded contracts for large amount of bugles after...
