This is an original Olds Ambassador Trombone made in LA, CA. This horn has virtually no denting having only remnants of dents on the bell section and very minor imperfections on the tuning slide and crook. Finish is decent and shows a nice patina. There are a few scratches here and there from normal use. Inner slide tubes are essentially spotless. I rate the slide a 9/10. All braces are solid. Appears to have had previous solder repairs. Tuning slide moves nicely. Counterweight appears to have been sealed to the post with sealant. Includes the original Olds mouthpiece. Horn was serviced. Service may have included: Slide and tuning job and alignment, polish, and minor dent removal.

Horn is being sold as-is, with no returns in the condition shown in the pictures, so please review all images and message me with any questions. I'll be happy to respond to inquires!

I am always open to reasonable offers. Keep in mind that eBay charges a higher sellers premium than Reverb, so I typically have lower prices and more flexibility on Reverb, which is like eBay just for instruments.

I play, buy, collect and sell trombones and attempt to describe the horn in the way in which I would want it described.

All the horns I sell are in playable condition, unless otherwise stated. Some may have cosmetic wear, which will be shown in the pictures. More pictures may be available on my Reverb listing for this instrument. A cheaper list price and no tax may also be available on Reverb. Please submit payment for all purchases within 24hrs, unless an arrangement is made via the messaging system prior to purchasing the item. Shipping is $50 flat on eBay and $40 flat on Reverb within the 48 United States through USPS, UPS, or FedEx (whichever is faster and most cost-efficient) and $100 minimum on eBay and $85 minimum on Reverb to Canada and Mexico. Please provide an address other than a P.O. box as I typically ship via UPS or FedEx. Destinations other than Canada and Mexico may incur additional shipping charges, so I will be happy to invoice you the appropriate shipping amount. It will be well packed and insured. Most horns are shipped without any slide lubricant.

Free local pick-up is available in the suburbs of Chicago.
