Olds Standard (LA - 1947) For Sale
Hello Fellow Trumpet Aficionados;
As I mention in my intro when I recently joined, I have been playing Olds trumpets for over 60 years and own a number of different models. I previously wrote a lot about these models when I was on TrumpetMaster. I am no longer able to play as actively as I would like and it is time to start reducing the herd a bit. I am offering one here (not on ebay so I can keep the cost down). It is a very nice 1947 Olds Standard which is one of their original professional models for which they were well-known. This unit has most of the original lacquer which has taken on a dark patina. It is fully functional with good valves and slides. It has the usual worn areas but no damage. There are a couple of small dings on the bell pipe, easily repaired if you are inclined. I have an old Olds case but do not think it is original to this horn.
I am asking $1100 but am willing to discuss if you have any questions. You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
