From the 1938 King Band Instrument catalogue
The Cornet that won the recognition and endorsement of the world's foremost cornetists and bandmasters
This Cornet is a worthy successor to the famous "Master Model" which attained leadership by its fascinating playing qualities, its perfect tone and intonation. Retaining these essential features, the valves were lowered, the tuning device changed and a new bell rim added, which, together with the modernistic bracing, makes it a cornet of unsurpassed beauty.
Exceedingly fast execution is obtained through the improved lowered valves with their soft, responsive action. Its wonderful tone and incomparable intonation will amaze you. Difficult phrases are easy on this smooth velvety, toned instrument.
You should know what this cornet will do for you in comparison with any other. Trial and comparison will convince you, "it's the finest Cornet in the World."
