1959 Olds Ambassador Trombone Good Slide Action W/case Ding Free Fullerton Calif


Here is a clean vintage dent free Olds Ambassador brass and nickel silver trim slide trombone, serial number 347479 and circa 1959 vintage. The horn is engraved with the Olds logo and marked “Olds – Ambassador – Fullerton – Calif”. Reputedly these early horns are pro quality and considered one of the best American made instruments. Note the spit valve located at the bend of the slide section shown in photo 4 to remove water  – it is in fine working order. The early Ambassador models were lighter weight trombones. The original hardshell fitted case is velvet lined and carries the Olds logo on the outside. Three latches secure the case, one of which is missing. The accessory compartment has 3 dividers in it and a brass badge on the inside of the lid that reads “Vac-A-Bond Geib Chicago”, they were the supplier of the case. Given the condition of this trombone I would say it has very few hours of actual use. Please examine the photos carefully as they constitute much of the description and supersede any discrepancy with the text. Disclosures: it will probably need to be gone over by a professional; missing the mouth piece; the nickel plated counterweight has some fine road rash on it; the brass has a nice even tarnish/patina across all surfaces; one of the case latches is missing; the case handle may have been replaced; and normal age, use, and storage marks. This will have to be shipped in an oversize carton at dimensional weight.
