I can answer your questions about Buescher trumpets and cornets. I have been playing Buescher for 35 years and collecting for 7.
I first started playing my grandfather's Buescher 400 trumpet in 1975. Since then I have done a lot of research, including original catalogs and advertisements that I own, correspondence with other Buescher owners, and obtaining my own Buescher collection, including six trumpets and three cornets.
