Purchase & shipping

This is an Olds Super Star in very good original condition.   This model was introduced in 1973 and although it shared a similar name with the venerable Super Trumpet, it was a completely different design.  It has a one piece "Ultra Sonic" bell and a wider wrap with the tuning slide and a "flow through" alignment of the valves.  While the marketing department was working overtime to hype this new horn, there were in fact some interesting innovations with this horn that make it a very open and free blowing horn.  This would be a great lead horn.  Here is a link to an ad for this horn: 1973 Instrumentalist Magazine Ad.

Original silver plating is very good with a few scratches as shown.  Valves and slides are smooth.  This was a pro quality horn at the time and although it never really developed a following at the time, today it is a very affordable professional quality instrument.

Specifications are shown in the 1977 Olds Catalog.

Comes original Olds case as pictured.
