HELP!! Looking for Ganter cornet...
CALL FOR HELP
Many years ago, I was an unofficial sales promoter for Hermann Ganter in Munich... as a thank you, he made me a special Bb cornet (yellow brass, lacquered) for my birthday, with a special engraving mentioning my name on the side of the bell.
Couple of years later, I fell onto hard times and had to sell lots of things to eat and survive. Amongst these things was that special cornet... which I sold to a fellow cornet player in the Munich Brass Band, an English lady called Alison (did never know anything more...), in the hope of recovering that cornet later, on the assumption that my tenure in that band would last many years... but I got an unexpected job quite far away and lost all contact with the band; when I returned to the band about 12 years later, it had completely re-formed and no one knew anything about a cornet player called Alison...
Now, I am in the position of having not only got my life back on track after a long period of... well, no details needed... but playing in a brass band again (www.pfw.at).
AND I WOULD LOVE TO FIND THAT CORNET AND BUY IT BACK, WHATEVER CONDITION IT IS IN NOW.
Details: Hermann Ganter Bb cornet, more or less medium bore, based on a Jupiter valve block. Yellow brass, lacquered; Maker's engraving on bell, dedicatory engraving mentioning my name, Elmar Eggerer, on the side of the bell.
