Is anyone familiar with this horn's history and its good and bad points?
I'm looking at the possibility of picking up one at a very reasonable price.
I haven't been able to find much info on the internet with the exception of a few that are for sale.
Thanks very much.

It’s an Olds in name only, produced by the company that bought the rights to the name after Olds went out of business in 1979. Some features do look like those on the Ambassador model trumpet, though. I’ve never played one, so I can’t give any info on the quality of the instrument.

To the best of my knowledge, this trumpet is a Blessing stencil that was produced by NEMC in the 1990's. It's considered an affordable, playable horn that is Olds in name only. They can be purchased for as little as $100, sometimes going for $150 or more.
