1949 Fe Olds Studio Professional Tenor Trombonelos Angeles Calif

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 have shown what we can in the pictures allowed. We are happy to answer any questions asked.  #39/2017

Up for sale is a 1949 Studio Model made by FE Olds and Son Professional Tenor Trombone-made in Los Angeles Calif. The horn has serial #449xx and is in great condition.  The horn is made of yellow brass and solid nickel silver; FE Olds introduced the Olds Studio model line with the “Brilliant Bell”, a distinctive nickel silver flare. There are a couple of faint dings on the bell, very minimal scratching and a ‘nickel’ sized area of minor pitting on the lower bell flare.  There is a small edge of rim discoloration near the pitting. The grips are clean. The slide action is very good with slight residual whisper after cleaning and honing which should minimize after play and use.  The stockings are clean with minimal wear, but with one little speck of discoloration near the end of the tube.  There is excellent compression. This instrument is not lacquered; therefore, this instrument may have to be polished periodically (we recommend using Weiman METAL Polish).  The slide bore is .485/.500 and the bell flare is 7 1/2″.  This Studio model is a precise playing horn; it slots well with great intonation and response.  I would describe the ability of this horn to play everything well, with a beautiful, straightforward sound and good power.
