Purchase & shipping

This is a 1969 Olds  Recording that is in excellent original condition. Although most Recordings were finished in lacquer, this one left the factory with silver plating, as noted on the warranty card.  This trumpet is in excellent original condition, which is phenomenal for a 50 year old trumpet.   The only flaw is a small "wrinkle" on the underside of the bell tube at the start of the flare.  This is the result of some past dent repair.  The damage is minimal and the location is undetectiable unless you turn the horn upside down for a close inspection, but this flaw does exist.  This area is very difficult to photograph and is shown in the very last photo on this page.

The Recording model has the offset middle valve and balanced forward valve design; 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 engraving. 

There is some information on the Internet suggesting a reduction in quality in the later years of the original Olds company, but this trumpet was made during the heyday of Olds production and the quality of the fit and finish of this trumpet is excellent.  

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

Engraving is sharp and clear.

Valves are in excellent condition.

Comes with original custom case with leather trim and blanket cover and original warranty card.
