    Not sure if anyone can help, but we have someone in our training band who has a lof of problems with his right hand when playing the cornet.

    He currently holds the cornet in his right hand and plays with ther left but because of the way the instrument is built his hands get very sore!

    He has expressed an interest in getting a left handed cornet and I believe from the last time I spoke to him he would be prepared to buy one if it was not too expensive and a cornet that would last him for several years.

    I wonder if anyone has a adapted left handed lying around they might want to pass on to a good home? If so, please let me know. All details I receive I will pass on to the player but I cannot guarantee a sale at all of course as it isn't my choice! :eek:

    Many thanks

    What is the sound like on the German ones? Any ideas?

    The prototype idea is good - escpecially as the guy is willing to pay for one.

    I will pass the info on to the relevant people - unless our Training Band Co-Ordinator is reading this! :)

    Thanks for the thoughts!
