Used Olds French Model in lacquer, good condition. This was Olds' top of the line trumpet in the 1930's, replaced in the following decade by the Super Recording. We gave this horn a cleaning, alignment, and some minor dentwork. It was relacquered at some point, but there's still evidence of pitting underneath, especially visible on the leadpipe. The compression isn't great, though it is much improved with a thick oil like Berp 3. The horn plays quite well, with a warm and thick sound that can brighten up when pushed. Comes with ProTec single case.
