I didn't have the Cousenon for long.
It was nikel plated, needed a repad. I sold it on to Saintsday (member of SOTW) and I think he still has it.
Sounded like it had a sweet tone but couldn't get a great idea with the pads the way they were. Looked to be really well made and the finish was well intact for its age. I think I remember Saintsday having a problem with the soldered in toneholes. Took a while to find the leak but when he did he raved about the horn. Maybe contact him.
Good luck with it
Hey Plant. I have a 1928 Cousenon straight sop, tell me all you know about them. racer. [John]
Just got in the door from the Strawberry Hills Hotel. Good New Orleans stuff. Boot was on fire (bari) and a good chick singer. The thursday night jam is going well.
7.30 (or whenever you get there at cnr of Link rd and Mona Vale rd St Ives. Really laid back, bring along a fake book or just grab the key and play by ear.
