    The old 921 was the best cornet I've played on, better than the later 928. If I'm not mistaken, the 928 was large bore instrument with medium bore lead pipe, and 921 was large bore instrument but with large bore lead pipe. I know of a few other players who rave about their old 921's.

    Are you all sure that it was the 921 that was large bore?

    I thought it was the 923??? In our band we have kevin Robbins old Sov from when he was in the sun life band......im sure thats a 923.

    After a quick search , i cant find much except these two pictures of the the 921 and 923 above and below each other on the cornetsite. (about 1/3 the way down the page)

    Heres the link
    http://www.cornetsite.nl/index_bestanden/BbCornetsB.htm

    The 923 looks slightly bigger i think... but you cant tell the bore size from the outside!. I would suspect that the 923 was the bigger bore. What do you recon?

    It's hard to tell off that because of the different angles.

    Ahhh,, yes .....well thers very little info on these instrumnets on the web! and im not sure how we can find out really? , i know that some brass shops have a book with most instruments listed in it with date of manufacture and basic specifications so they can id instrumenst for PX and for resale. Perhaps some one on thier next visit to a music shop could find out?
