OLDS TRUMPET SPECIAL 1959 TRI-TONE FINISH HAND POLISHED COMP FINE REUNION BAG SIGNED BY ROY HARGROVE
OFFERED HERE ( NOTE IN THE PICS THERE IS NO 3RD SLIDE FINGER RING TO MOVE SLIDE IN AND OUT.
I FOUND ONE THAT WORKS. I WILL INCLUDE IT BUT I DON’T HAVE A SCREW THAT FITS TO TIGHTEN DOWN.
BUT SLIDE IS SMOOTH )
NOTE ALSO…WHILE RESEARCHING THIS I FOUND AN AD WITH A GUY THAT SOLD ONE OF THESE HE SAID
>I would describe this trumpet as a “heavyweight” model. The “heavyweight” nickel silver and rose brass bell produces a fluid warm core tone. Though the bell taper is faster than that of a Bach 37, this trumpet produces a dark tone more similar to that of a Bach 72 (however, the sound is much more centered, focused and has better projection). The valve cluster is more forward, similar to those found on the Olds Ambassador Model Trumpet, In addition, the valve caps are set low creating a slightly shorter valve stroke. This trumpet produces an even tone and has good intonation throughout the entire register. <
THANKS FOR THE INFO FRIEND
