Up for your consideration is an Olds Super trumpet circa 1946 that has been restored by Charlie Melk and is in Excellent condition...There's no dents or dings...There are only a couple of things I need to mention, that being the end of the tube on the second valve slide is a little chewed up, but does not affect anything, it still slides in and out good and is only cosmetic(photo #5)...There are some small spots under the lacquer on the lead pipe by the valves, again purely cosmetic, and hardly noticeable...Also the lead pipe was replaced by Charlie Melk when he restored the horn...The horn has been Ultrasoniclly cleaned and reassembled with all new pads and felts...The valves and slides (including the 3rd. and 1st. slide throws) are in Excellent condition and move perfectly...The valve compression is Excellent, and they are lightning fast, smooth, and quiet...This horn plays as good as any Super you will ever find...As you can see in the photo's, most of the parts were numbered with the serial numbers, even the inner slide tubes and bottom valve caps have the last two serial numbers stamped on them (third valve bottom cap is not original to this horn, but is from the same era and is from another Super with numbers in it, it's identical)...The valves, valve stems, and Top valve caps all have the complete serial number stamped in them( all these are numbers matching)...This is just another example of the time and care that the Olds company took when building their horns during this excellent manufacturing era...This Super also has the brass tone ring on the bell flare which is another rare feature of this trumpet, as there were only a small percentage of these produced...

There is no case or mouthpiece included...The horn will be well packed...

If your looking for an EXCELLENT playing Olds Super, your search is over...Don't let this fantastic piece of American Musical history pass you by...You'll be hard pressed to find another one of these in this Excellent condition, and it's Melk restored, it doesn't get any better than that...

Anybody that knows Charlie Melks work, and what he charges for a restoration knows that the restoration of this horn was probably pretty close to what my BIN price is, so pretty much your getting the horn for little to nothing...(Also remember, this horn has a brand new lead pipe made by Charlie Melk)...

I have included several high quality photo's to help describe this piece, please view them closely and feel free to ask any question's you may have before bidding...

THANKS FOR LOOKING

I personally restore/refurbish most all of the Instruments that I sell on Ebay...I enjoy taking an old unused and in some cases pretty beat up instrument, and bring it back to life, something someone can be proud to play...In most cases I am overly critical about any defects because I don't want to mislead anyone...I am only human and occasionally overlook or misjudge something, but most generally I'm spot on with my descriptions...I am an honest seller and always open to suggestions and/or information about the items I'm selling...No fluff, No non-sense sales...Thanks for your business, Phil

Please be sure to check out my other auctions...
