This is a 1942 Olds Super in a lacquer finish. This instrument is in great condition considering the age. Slide fit is fantastic, and with some thicker T1 la Tromba oil feel great. Does show signs of minor wear, but does not effect the overall play ability. Like with all of the instruments we sell here, we have done a precision valve alignment and a full servicing. Does not come with a case, and the serial no. 10708.
From Olds: Streamlined for power and beauty, the SUPER is a custom-crafted instrument of unlimited flexibility, ease of blowing and rich, resonant tone.
The streamlined form and bracing means easier handling: the smooth action is effortless, fast and dependable. The "Tone Control Band" construction insures power without blasting. Valves are nickel silver and special nickel allow is used throughout all contact points of the SUPER.
