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.  We are proud to offer this refurbished instrument for sale. We have tried to describe it as it is, but are happy to answer any questions asked.  #/2016Up for sale is a 1955 FE Olds & Son 'Recording' Tenor Professional Trombone.  Manufactured in Fullerton, Calif.  Dual slide bore .495/.510, with a 8" diameter bell flare.  It is has a bell made of Rey-O-Loy red brass, nickel alloy outer slide and fluted inners .  There are various very faint 'dings', minimal scratching and normal pitting at the slide grips. The slide action is very good with good compression.  The stockings on the lower tubes show some flaking and wear-through, but action is still very good...maybe with a slight 'whisper'.  This instrument is not lacquered; therefore, this instrument may have to be polished periodically (we recommend using Weiman METAL Polish). This trombone comes with a mouthpiece-Olds 3 and is shipped in a used, original case. This horn has a very fast response, excellent intonation and a great tone...very powerful.  This horn was one of the best jazz horns and plays well.
