Olds Ambassador Trombone - with Case and Mouthpiece - Used




Our Perspective:
This USA trombone just came in on consignment from the original owner, through the serial # we have determined this was made in 1979. Its in great shape, the slide is very smooth, there are some light scratches, but no damage. The case is the original injected molded case and it is in terrific shape. Comes with the original Olds 12C mouthpiece. This a great USA made trombone for a student - USA quality at a very affordable price!

Consignment Sale, as such, All Sales Final!

Olds History:
The trombone is essentially a big slide trumpet- in fact, the name trombone means in Italian "big trumpet." While there are unverified stories dating the trombone back to the Spartans in 685 B.C./ the first authenticated trombone arrived in the 14th century with the first use of the tuning slide. (The trombone slide is simply an elongated, easily operated tuning slide.)

Until the origin Olds trombone patents of 1912, the trombone had advanced little in mechanical perfection. Unwieldy slides greatly inhibited the free flow of music they were capable of producing. F.E. Olds, the master mechanic, realized the essence of the trombone was the facility of the slide. In applying sound mechanical principals to slide design and a more conical design to the air column, he ushered in the new era of the trombone.

About the Model 88HO
The story of the Conn 88H trombone ultimately begins in 1875 with the vision and determination of one man: Colonel C.G. Conn. Founding a band instrument manufacturing company in the small town of Elkhart, Indiana, Conn quickly became known for his innovative brass designs and became the largest producer of trombones in the United States and earned the lasting reputation as "America's trombone house." Carrying on this tradition, the 88H is recognized for its unique tone color and refusal to "break up" even at the most extreme dynamics making it one of the most widely used professional symphonic trombones in the world. The Conn 88H series. Trombones with a future as bright as their past.

The Conn 88HO Symphony trombone features a .547" primary bore combined with a .562" bore open wrap F attachment that offers outstanding clarity and projection with an open feel. The chrome plated nickel silver inner handslide tubes provide the ideal surface for smooth and quick handslide action. The rose brass material used in the professional bell and handslide material produces a deep, warm resonant sound while the clear lacquer finish adds a subtle warmth overall. The Conn 88HO professional trombone is ideal for both symphonic and solo performance. Available in silver-plate finish as model 88HOSP.
