Olds Studio Baritone/Euphonium

Postby ParLawGod » Mon Aug 09, 2010 9:04 pm

I have an Olds Studio (Los Angeles) baritone/euphonium for sale. Bell-front, 2-tone bell, 3-valves. I'm hesitant to sell this, but I just bought a Conn double-bell euphonium so one of them has to go. Of all of the 3-valvers I have ever owned (several Kings and Conns, Olds, a Holton) this has been, by far, my favorite. With my opened Bach 5 mouthpiece this thing played much closer to a large bore euphonium, and better in tune, than I had ever anticipated. Perhaps it was just the mouthpiece selection and my playing style, but I have really grown to enjoy this horn. Granted, it is NOT a pro level horn by any stretch!

Valve plating is very good and the springs were replaced a couple months ago, so the valve action is very good. All tuning slides work and spit corks were also recently replaced. Only downsides are that the plating is worn and the bell could use a fix-up (see photos).

I spent quite some time tracking down an LA Olds Studio (and a few weeks back even made a post looking for a 4-valve LA Olds Studio model) and would really like to see this horn go to someone who'll appreciate it as much as I did/do.

No case or mouthpiece included.

Asking $200 OBO shipped to Con-US. I'll probably leave this posting on here for a few days (I'd rather see it go to someone here), then it's eBay-bound. Thanks for looking!

Just wanted to let everyone know I am open to offers (I'm not married to the price). May also consider a trade for a valve trombone.

Thanks!

The Los Angeles vintage Olds "Studio" series (trumpet/trombone/baritone) was pretty cool. It featured a nickel silver flare brazed on to a brass bell throat, and quite a bit of nickel silver on the rest of the instrument.

Unless I'm mistaken, during the later Fullerton era, the "Studio" series instruments morphed into being nickel PLATED, and the former "Studio" was reversed (nickel silver bell throat with brass bell flare) and called the "Special".

Right now, I'm working on an L.A. Vintage "Studio" trombone (sister to this f/s euphonium) for a professional player. He's excited to have it, as the Olds "Studio" and "Super" trombone models were comparable in quality and size to the formidable King 2B.

The nickel silver bell flare on this euphonium would be an easy fix, and the nickel silver part could fairly easily be buffed out and spritzed with new lacquer for a good appearance. The factory Olds epoxy lacquer strips easily with that "Aircraft Remover" brand of paint stripper. You don't see many of these, as the "Ambassador" series baritones were produced by the crate-load, and these "Studio" instruments were usually special order.
