Purchase & shipping

This is a 1954 Olds  Recording that was made during the last year in the original Olds plant in Los Angeles before the move to Fullerton.  It had more lacquer missing than still on the horn, so we stripped the remaining lacquer and polished it.  Includes the original Olds Guarantee (which excluded lacquer!).  Interesting that the Guarantee lists the new Fullerton address although all indications are that another 20,000 or so horns were made at the LA plant based on serial number information.  

This model has the offset middle valve and balanced forward valve design, but also has features which made this horn one of the most unique and distinctive of all modern trumpets: the Rey-O-loy bell and leadpipe, more commonly known as "rose brass" for the higher copper content; the spring loaded third valve trigger; and the distinctive custom engraving.    

This trumpet clean inside and out.  All slides are smooth.  

Engraving is sharp and clear

Valves are in excellent condition with very good compression.

Comes with a leather gig bag.
