Late 50’s King 2b Silversonic Professional Tenor Trombone #1457

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.  #93/2016

Up for sale is a late 1950’s King 2B Silversonic Model 1457 Professional Tenor Trombone, made by the HN White Co, Cleveland,Ohio, serial #350xxx.  This horn has a sterling silver bell and crystal silver slide. Also has solid nickel silver and yellow brass accents and is nicely engraved. All sections are stamped with matching serial numbers.  There are various small dings-scratches, with some deeper scratching on the bell flare (see pic).  The grips have moderate pitting with a dent on the slide hand piece (see pic).  The slide action is very good and the stockings are in good shape with a couple of pea-sized wear through spots at the top of the stockings, but does not cause drag. However, there is a ‘slight grab’ in 7th position–like most horns. The slide tubes have been cleaned and honed, so the slide will need to break-in and will improve with play.  The slide bore is .481, with a 7.375″ bell flare. It comes with a used, hard-sided case and a mouthpiece.  This horn is not lacquered, therefore, it will need to be polished periodically (we recommend Weiman METAL polish).

This model historically has been one of the favorite jazz horns of all time. The Silversonic was “unmatched for performance and beauty-Truly a classic among trombones”.  This horn has good intonation, tone and power…Direct sound with a sweet high register….  Thanks for looking and check out our other items!  All horns are located at Silver & Brass Music Shop710 N.
