The old eyesight's getting worse and I'm finding it harder and harder and harder to read my music from the 2nd cornet bench without my stand literally being on the front row . Even more noticeable now is the difficulty when using a lyre. I definately can't use a conventional lyre on the 3rd valve slide, so switched to one that attaches to the top of the bell. This was great initially, but now even that is still a tad too close without going cross-eyed! Are there cornet lyres similar to those for some 'bones that would perhaps fit to the bell as opposed to the lead pipe, but have a horizontal shank? Maybe I should just get one adapted, but better if there is one I can buy. Cheers peeps!
