From Dr. Bill Jones website: "The Trumpet Design Studio is operated by Bill Jones, a professional trumpet performer and teacher for over 30 years that studied with William Vacchiano at the Juilliard School. Jones has performed across the United States, in Canada and Europe and has won over 20 competitive auditions for performing jobs, orchestra positions, and academic positions in his career. He designs horns that are intended to have superior intonation and a sound that suits the performance genre for which the instrument is intended. He also designs mouthpieces for special needs or players that are going through embouchure changes. Jones maintains an active schedule as a performer and also operates “brasschambermusic.com” where you can read more about him and find quality publications for brass performers, as well as information about the “International Brass Chamber Music Fe The cornet is a custom designed horn by Dr. Bill Jones out of Massachusetts. He has been a trumpet designer and builder for many years and pro players have recognized the skill and high build quality of Dr. Jones' horns. This horn has been full serviced here in the shop, including a full clean, oil, adjust, polish, and (very minor) dent removal. The horn is in phenomenal shape and plays with a gorgeous and easy tone quality. There is some minor plating wear around the casing, all are pictured above. Gold accents on the finger buttons, stems, and caps. Will ship with Protec case. The cornet is on consignment from the second owner.
