Information about the cornet:
"The 28A Connstellation has been described as the "secret weapon" or "hidden gem" among the Connstellations. I know of several people who prefer it above the 38B Connstellation trumpet. For one, by using various different mouthpieces the sound can varied between bright trumpet and mellow cornet, much more so than on a trumpet."
 
And this is what Conn had to say about this instrument back in 1957:
"Here's the "cornet of tomorrow"... the world's first cornet that looks like a trumpet! And, it has the most consistently good scale of any cornet ever made. Features scientific CALI-BORE (tone chamber calibration); non-corroding, acoustically correct mouthpipe with MICRO-FINISH on the inside; seamless ELECTRO-D bell; lightning fast, quiet top spring, pin suspension, clickless crysteel valves with precision-lapped slides for instant, accurate adjustment while playing and Nylon piston guide which reduces valve noise to a minimum at the same time adding longer life as compared to former metal guide. Trigger mechanism on first valve, easily operated because of the precision-lapped slides, gives player added flexibility in both high and low ranges. Length 21 3/8", weight 2 lbs. 12 oz. bell diameter 5 1/8". Highly polished nickel plated finish with brass trim, protected by longer lasting, acid resistant LUSTRE-CONN finish."
