Purchase & shipping

This is a 1953 Olds  Recording that is in very good condition.  We purchased from the family of the original owner.  It was restored at some point in the past, but nothing definitive is known about the restoration, other than it was well done and the engraving is very sharp.  The valve compression is excellent.  

There is a bit of lacquer wear and a few scattered scratches.  There are a few areas of wear as shown in the photos, but overall the horn has an excellent cosmetic appearance.  There are a couple of small dents in the tuning slide. This is an early Recording, made in 1953 which was the near the start production for this model after it replaced the Super Recording.

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. 

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

Engraving is sharp and clear

Valves are in very good condition
