WHY BUY A RESTORED VINTAGE INSTRUMENT OVER NEW?
1. UNMATCHED QUALITY IN DESIGN, CRAFTSMANSHIP AND METAL
2. PRICED LESS THAN A NEW INSTRUMENT
3. IN MOST CASES IT WILL PLAY FAR BETTER THAN A NEW INSTRUMENT
“THEY DON’T MAKE ‘EM LIKE THEY USED TO!!”
YOU JUST CAN'T BEAT THE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND METAL USED
IN A TRUE VINTAGE KING TROMBONE!
These horns retail new for almost $2400. These vintage King trombones far out perform the new ones.
Here’s you chance to own a great looking and playing professional trombone
for way less than the price of a new one.
THIS IS A GREAT TROMBONE FOR JAZZ OR ALL-AROUND PLAYING!
THE 3B IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR MODELS OF ALL TIME FOR PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS!
The guys that really knew how to build horns at the King Instrument Co. plant in Eastlake, OH crafted this fine trombone. It was made before the King Instrument Co. was sold to C. G. Conn and the European corporate conglomerate UMI.
Serial number is 618631 which dates to around 1977
This is a great horn from the last years of the “Golden Age of King trombones”.
Includes a new mouthpiece and a new case
This is not your standard used instrument. It has been completely taken apart, dents removed, carefully reassembled and a new baked epoxy lacquer finish applied!
The restoration was done by a respected local shop with over 40 years experience in woodwind and brass instrument restorations and repairs. Some of their employees worked at the H.N. White and King factories in Cleveland and Eastlake, Ohio. One employee started working at the HN White Company in 1957!
I have personally used this company for over 10 years for my adult band members and myself. I had this shop overhaul and silver plate my “baby” – a 1971 Besson professional euphonium and for me that’s like trusting someone to operate on your kid. (I’ve had the horn longer than my kids!) It really looks great and actually plays better than when I bought it new in college.
THIS TROMBONE REALLY LOOKS AND PLAYS GREAT!!
The King 3B trombone has an 8” bell diameter and a .508” bore
and features nickel silver outer slide tubes for superior slide action.
The slide is fast and smooth WITH BRAND NEW INNER AND OUTER SLIDE TUBES!
.The King 3B is an outstanding all around trombone for jazz as well as solo and concert band or symphonic work. King trombones have long been the choice of professional trombone players from Tommy Dorsey in the 1940’s to legendary trombonists Urbie Green, Kai Winding, JJ Johnson and present day artists like Jiggs Whigham. Since it’s introduction in the 1950’s the King 3B has been one of the most popular professional trombones ever made.
AN OUTSTANDING CLASSIC PROFESSIONAL TROMBONE!!
A REAL PLAYER
DON’T LET THIS ONE GET AWAY!!!

The pictures tell the story. I personally play everything I sell, so there’s nothing to worry about. I’m a band director and professional musician playing tuba to trumpet and everything in between. If I wouldn’t have it in my house, I won’t send it to yours!
I’ve just collected too many instruments and other "horn stuff", between the community band that I direct (plus 3 others I play in – yes, I’m a little crazy!) and 2 kids that played in band in school. It’s time to “thin the herd”, so I’ll be listing some more instruments and “horn stuff” soon.
UPDATE: Thanks to all who have bought “stuff from my closet”. This has gone so well, that I’ve opened an Ebay store and will be looking for nice items (mostly band instruments and “horn stuff”) to offer for sale on Ebay as well as selling for band members and friends.
If there is something you’d like, just email me with your request and I’ll try to find it for you.
Please note: This item is also for sale locally. I will have to end the auction early if it sells locally, so grab it with "BUY IT NOW!".
THANKS TO ALL MY PAST CUSTOMERS! I'm now starting my 4th
year on eBay with sales to 22 countries and 46 states, and great positive
feedback! Thanks to all of you, I've
achieved some of eBay's top ratings, plus a lot of great horns have been
rescued and are now enjoying a new life all around the world.
