Purchase & shipping

This is a 1941 Olds Super Recording.   The Super Recording represents the pinnacle of Olds craftsmanship.    The Super Recording was actually known at the time as the "Recording model Super trumpet."  Prior to its introduction in Olds lineup.  Thus the new model built on the reputation of the Super. The Super Recording had three different design phases during its 10 year or so production run.  This represents the original design from the late 1930's and is the most rare and widely sought version.

More information about this rare early Super Recording model can be found in the 1941 Olds Catalog posted at Olds Central 1941 Olds Catalog.

This has the "dual leaderpipe" that is referenced in Olds literature. It has a brass leadpipe with a nickel silver sleeve that is placed over the receiver and leadpipe.  It also has the wider nickel silver tone ring that is only found on pre-war models.  These early models have "Super Olds Recording Model" hand engraved into the tone ring.  There is no bell engraving that was added on later models.

Comes with the original case in very good condition. 

There is minimal wear to the lacquer.  No pitting or rot anywhere on the horn.  While this horn must have been restored in the past, it was not recently and the engraving is sharp and clear, so there was not any extensive buffing and the new lacquer was well done.  Valves and slides are smooth.  The only flaw when we received this horn was that the valve compression was not great, so the horn was sent to Charlie Melk for valve replating and a precision valve alignment. Compression is now excellent.  

This trumpet clean inside and out.  All slides are smooth.  

Engraving is sharp and clear.

Valves have excellent compression.
