Not a collector of music on covers, but this illustrated advertising cover fits the category, at least tangentially. The cover is a little ratty, but the trumpeter squirrel is one of my favorites.

DonSellos, that is a fantastic cover. With a trumpet playing squirrel, I think it completely works in this conversation. Thank you much for sharing.

How about a couple of Bach stamp covers:

1) This is a cover featuring the very first stamp of J.S. Bach, from Germany in 1926 (cover dated 1927).



2) A postcard cancelled on board a zeppelin bearing the 1935 composer anniversary stamps from Germany, with J. S. Bach.



3) A 1950 cover of the four stamps from East Germany in the bicentennial year of Bach's death.



4) A 1950 cover of the two stamps from West Germany featuring the Bach crest during the bicentennial year (shared earlier in this thread).

What is this instrument called?
It looks like a mutant guitar of some sort.

The unusual instrument on the 1905 cover a few posts back is a "harp guitar", as was quickly pointed out to me by two friends who know far more music than I do. Both immediately pulled-up Youtube videos to show me.

And to add a musical meter with a WWII patriotic theme, dated coincidentally on December 7, 1944:

Here is one of my favorite advertising covers. It is from the A.M. Ordway music retailer in Hagerstown, MD, 1898. I just published some of my research about it here:

Here is a post 1870 and pre-1877 cover. The illustrated building was lost in the hours after 8:12 AM, April 18th, 1906, with a new fireproof 8 story (later 10 floor) building reconstructed on the site. While the former did not withstand The Great San Francisco Earthquake and Fire the replacement withstood the 1989 'World Series' Loma Prieta Quake and still stands today:





Sherman & Hyde (From: https://antiquepianoshop.com/online...herman-hyde/ )

The Sherman & Hyde Piano Company was a part of the most successful music retailer on the West Coast. In about 1870, Leander S. Sherman purchased a large music retail store in San Francisco from a gentleman by the name of A. A. Rosenberg. Mr. Sherman was joined shortly thereafter by F. A. Hyde, forming "The Sherman & Hyde Company". During the early years, the firm was primarily a retailer and distributor of sheet music and musical instruments, including pianos and organs. There is evidence of a limited number of instruments being manufactured and sold under the "Sherman & Hyde" brand name, but they are very rare today.

In 1876, E. C. Clay joined the firm and the name of the firm was changed to "Sherman & Clay Company". During the early 20th Century pianos sold under the "Sherman & Clay" label were manufactured by The Haddorff Piano Company. Sherman & Clay went on to be one of the largest and most successful musical instrument retailers on the West Coast, and they are still one of the largest and most prestigious music store chains in America today.

A wonderful history of Sherman and Clay (glossing over the Sherman and Hyde name the first seven years) filled with explanations of the times and a fine read can be found here: http://www.shermanclay.com/

The city of address, Sutter Creek, is named after John Sutter who moved there for a while after his discovery of gold at his mill near Coloma which started the California Gold Rush in 1848. The PO was established in 1852 with the area becoming a town in 1854, a town which remains today.
