Purchase & shipping

This is a 1951 Olds  Recording that is in very good condition.  It is silver plated, but although the bell engraving is in excellent condition and shows no sign of buffing, we believe this is an original lacquer horn that has been silver plated.  Olds did produce some silver plated horns during this era, but those were typically for the US Military.  

Like the Super Recording, this model has the offset middle valve and balanced forward valve design, but also introduces new 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. These early Los Angeles Recordings each have unique hand engraving which was standardized in later models.  These early Recordings also have "straight balusters" unlike the bulb-style that most all Olds horns had except Recordings and Supers made during this one year or so period in the very early 50's.   

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

Engraving is sharp and clear
