1957 Ambassador Made By Fe Olds & Son Tenor Trombonefullerton Ca

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.  #8/2015

Up for sale is a 1957 Ambassador made by FE Olds & Son Student/Intermediate Tenor Trombone-made in Fullerton Calif. The horn has serial #218xxx and is made from yellow brass. There is also #860 on the slide.  There are various dings, pings and dimples on the instrument and some pitting at the grips, but very little scratching. The slide action is good/very good with a residual whisper from cleaning and honing of the slide; this should improve with play and breaking in. The stockings are very good with some minor flaking on the slide tube and there is good 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″.  It comes with a used case(it has the name Melanie Tyson in marker on the side), and mouthpiece.  The Olds Ambassador line of trombones was introduced as an indestructible student line, very ruggedly built.  This horn plays bright, with a full strong tone.  It slots well and has good power.  This is a great beginner instrument or fine intermediate player.
