The model of cornet I refer to is the 3141, pro. model. It has been
tried here in New Zealand by some of the better players around and they
all have very positive things to say about it. It comes with triggers on
1st & 3rd and is available in lacquer, silverplate and sterling silver.
The most common remark is about its free blowing qualities and its easy
high register. The valve action is smooth and quiet and are not prone to
the usual "stickiness" of some other brands I would do well not to
mention! 
I hope this helps.
