I have a friend whose great grandfather played this coronet in John Phillip Sousa’s band. He does not play it but, because of it’s heritage wanted to display it in his home. His wife wanted a stand that would allow the trumpet to lay flat. I built it as well since I did not get my final artistic treble clef version approved. Needless to say, they loved it and offered the flat version back to me for my own trumpet.

Beautiful stand. I have an old trumpet that was played by my father, me and then my son. Mayby this is what I need to get it out of the case so it can be seen. Thanks for posting.

Beautiful stand and cornet. Great to see the family loves and wants to display it.

I was a trumpet major in college and just love the old cornets, they have a distinct sound and are very agile to play.
