1947 Fe Olds And Son Special Tenor Trombone

Straight from our brass (and silver) instrument repair shop, our USED horns are brought back to life…All major dents are removed, joints re-soldered (if needed), patches repaired (if necessary) and the slides reworked.  Our horns may be buffed, but all are hand polished to a good shine and are in good playable condition.  For the collector who is looking for an instrument; we try to keep the original parts whenever possible; if the playability is good, we feel it should be left to the buyer’s discretion to replace parts as desired.  We are proud to offer this refurbished instrument for sale. We have tried to describe it as it is, and are happy to answer any questions asked.  #31/2016

Up for sale is a 1947 FE Olds & Son ‘Special’ Tenor Trombone. Manufactured in Los Angeles, Calif.  There is alway discussion whether the Special was made as a Professional Model Trombone; well, it plays as a professional horn. Dual slide bore .485/.500, with a 7.5″ diameter bell flare.  The serial numbers on the horn are #231xx, all matching.  It is made of yellow brass and solid nickel silver with a nice finish.  There are a few small ‘dings’ on the bell and a couple of faint bumps on the outer slide tubes, which do not affect play. There is light scratching throughout and very light pitting at the slide grips. There is some light pitting and etching on the bell and on tuning crook.  Please see the pictures for overall good condition. The slide action is very good/good; the slide tubes have been cleaned and honed, therefore, there may be some residual slowness at first play, but will get better with use.  The stockings are in very good condition with very good compression.  This instrument is not lacquered; therefore, this instrument may have to be polished periodically (we recommend using Weiman METAL Polish). This trombone comes with a mouthpiece and is shipped in a used case. This is a nice playing horn and has a very good response, solid intonation and nice power; a very good jazz horn. Great for the serious Intermediate or even Professional.  Thanks for looking and check out our other items!
