WHY BUY A RESTORED VINTAGE INSTRUMENT OVER NEW? 

 

 

1.  UNMATCHED QUALITY IN DESIGN, CRAFTSMANSHIP AND METAL

 

2.  PRICED LESS THAN A NEW INSTRUMENT

 

3.  IN MOST CASES IT WILL PLAY FAR BETTER THAN A NEW INSTRUMENT

 

 

 

“THEY DON’T MAKE ‘EM LIKE THEY USED TO!!”

 

 

 

YOU JUST CAN’T BEAT THE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND METAL USED

 

IN A TRUE VINTAGE KING TROMBONE!

 

 

Vintage King trombones far out perform the new ones. 

 

 

Here’s you chance to own a great looking and playing professional trombone

for way less than the price of a new one.

 

 

 

 

THIS IS A GREAT TROMBONE FOR JAZZ, SYMPHONY OR ALL-AROUND PLAYING!

 

 

 

 

 

The guys that really knew how to build horns at the King Instrument Co. plant in Eastlake, OH crafted this fine trombone. 

INCLUDES A SMALL SHANK MOUTHPIECE AND A CASE 

 

This is not your standard used instrument.  Restoration includes being completely taken apart, dents removed, carefully reassembled and a your choice of finishes applied.  It will look and play great!

 

  The restoration is done by a respected local shop with over 40 years experience in woodwind and brass instrument restorations and repairs.  Some of their employees worked at the H.N. White and King factories in Cleveland and Eastlake, Ohio.  One employee started working at the HN White Company in 1957!  

 

I have personally used this company for over 10 years for my adult band members and myself.  I had this shop overhaul and silver plate my  “baby” – a 1971 Besson professional euphonium and for me that’s like trusting someone to operate on your kid.  (I’ve had the horn longer than my kids!)  It really looks great and actually plays better than when I bought it new in college.

 

THIS TROMBONE WILL REALLY LOOK AND PLAY GREAT!! 

 

  

The King 3B trombone has an 8” yellow brass bell and a .508” bore 

and features nickel silver outer slide tubes for superior slide action. 

 

The slide is fast and smooth and has excellent compression

 

The chrome plating on the inner slide tubes is in excellent condition

 

 

The trombone currently has a string linkage F attachment.  If you want it without an F attachment, we make the conversion by removing the F attachment and adding a new straight gooseneck, plus a brace in front of the main tuning slide and add a vintage King counterweight with new labels.

 

The King 3B is a  professional trombone using a small shank mouthpiece.  

 

  

PUT THAT BACH OR CONN ON THE SHELF

 

AND EXPERIENCE THE FANTASTIC TONE, RESPONSE AND SLIDE ACTION

 

OF A GENUINE KING TROMBONE!!

 

This could be the only trombone you need!

 

It is an extremely versatile instrument.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The King 3B is an outstanding all around trombone for solo and concert band or symphonic work.  King trombones have long been the choice of professional trombone players from Tommy Dorsey in the 1940’s and 1950’s to legendary trombonists Urbie Green, Kai Winding, JJ Johnson and present day artists like Jiggs Whigham.

 

 

AN OUTSTANDING PROFESSIONAL TROMBONE!!

 

 

DON’T LET THIS ONE GET AWAY!!!

Sold AS IS – NO RETURNS
 

“REPAIR & RETURN WARRANTY”:

 All instruments are inspected and play tested prior
to shipping to insure the highest quality. 
While all horns are sold “AS IS, NO RETURNS”  all restored instruments are guaranteed
against defects in materials and workmanship for 30 days with a “REPAIR &
RETURN” warranty from the shop that does my overhauls.  Contact me through eBay to OK warrantyissues.  Horns must be returned prepaid,
fully insured against loss and damage by a carrier that provides tracking.  Horns will be repaired, or replaced with a
similar restored instrument if available, at our option and returned at no
expense to the buyer.  A store credit
towards any instrument in my ebay store can also be issued if the customer
prefers.  To guard against “buyer’s

acceptance of these terms. 

  

This trombone is guaranteed to be as described.  I take great care to make sure you are receiving a good quality instrument and to describe it accurately.  If something’s not right – I’ll make it right.

 

The pictures tell the story.  I personally play everything I sell, so there’s nothing to worry about.  I’m a band director and professional musician playing tuba to trumpet and everything in between.  If I wouldn’t have it in my house, I won’t send it to yours!

 

I’ve just collected too many instruments and other “horn stuff”, between the community band that I direct (plus 3 others I play in – yes, I’m a little crazy!) and 2 kids that played in band in school.  It’s time to “thin the herd”, so I’ll be listing some more instruments and “horn stuff” soon. 

 

UPDATE:  Thanks to all who have bought “stuff from my closet”.  This has gone so well, that I’ve opened an Ebay store and will be looking for nice items (mostly band instruments and “horn stuff”) to offer for sale on Ebay as well as selling for band members and friends. 

 

If there is something you’d like, just email me with your request and I’ll try to find it for you.
