Olds Trumpet retail list from 1967



  • The top of the trumpet line was the Custom that listed for $675. The top cornet was the Mendez for $525. However, using an inflation calculator $675 in 1967 is equivalent to approximately, depending on which online calculator you use....$5188.99 in 2019. The Mendez cornet is now the equivalent of $4035.88.

    A Bach Stradivarius goes for around $3000 today.

  • My Mt. Vernon Bach Stradivarius was around $400 in 1965.



  • @SSmith1226 That would work out about right $3260 now from $400 in 1965. Makes the Bach about the equal of the Olds Super. I'd go along with that but.... I'm sure overwhelming support would be given to the Bach as more "professional".

    This was the year my parents bought me the Olds Recording

    They got a better deal for this through Buddy Rogers Music (in North College Hill section of Cincinnati) as I believe they told me they paid $375 for the horn that year.



  • The really most valuable Olds...by general assumption I'd think..... would be the Olds Super Recording. It's production was from about 1936 to 1950. I don't know right off what kind of dollar value was assigned it during production years. It was probably a production cost thing which ended it's run in favor of the no bell ring Recording.



  • Sorry, but the Pinto is the best Olds trumpet ever made;)
