Kuhnl & Hoyer • no. 13540 • 1960
This pocket cornet was made in Germany in 1960, as dated by the manufacturer based on the serial number. While of the typical pocket wrap seen following World War 2, it is of somewhat better quality than the typical pocket instrument, especially with respect to the valves. Note also the “stretched” look to the design, as compared to Amati or Hakam Din. I would say that it plays better than either of those instruments, although I don’t like the tone quite as much.
