Purchase & shipping

This is a 1945 Los Angeles Olds Super Bb trumpet in very good original condition.  The lacquer was mostly gone, so it has been stripped and is in polished raw brass.  Production dates before, during and after WWII are a bit imprecise, but this was an excellent era of Olds production.  Supers of this era are lighter weight and have a higher copper content in the bell brass.  The engraving is sharp and clear, so no excessive buffing has been done.  

The nickel plated valves have very good compression.  Post War Supers did not have the tuning slide brace, first slide saddle, or 3rd slide stop rod.  This trumpet has all of those pre-war features.  It also has a brass tone ring which is only found on Supers of this era.   

This trumpet clean inside and out.  All slides are smooth. Engraving is sharp and clear. Matching serial numbers on the valve spring barrels.  Two digit serial numbers on the bottom caps and slide tubes. 

Does not come with a case but we can provide a generic case if you need one.
