This is a 1978 Olds P13-T Clark Terry model trumpet in very good original condition. The Clark Terry model trumpet and flugelhorn are among the rarest and most sought after Olds models. Even though these were among the last instruments made by Olds, they were made in such small numbers that they are hard to find. While there is a widely held belief that quality suffered near the end of the Olds production, the professional level horns such as this one were still made to the highest quality standards.
As seen in the 1977 Olds Catalog, one of the finish options for this model was Gold Plated (at an additional cost) and while there is some wear to the finish, this trumpet still retains its original factory gold plating, a testament to the quality of this instrument.
The Clark Terry model is a medium large bore (.460) trumpet with lightweight brass construction. The bell is of Olds "Ultra Sonic" design as engraved on the leadpipe. Ultra Sonic was a one-piece brass construction method used for the bell construction.
First slide saddle and third slide finger ring with screw stops.
Comes with a custom Olds case supplied with the professional models in the mid and late 1970's.
