Olds Ambassador Trombone, H.N. White Eb/F Alto Horn

Postby SousaWarrior9 » Tue Sep 25, 2018 10:46 pm

The storage clearing continues, this time, with some smaller horns:

First up is an Eb/F recording bell, front-action alto horn made by King (from the H.N. White years). King marketed these as "altoniums" back in the day to fit along side their marching baritones of the same design. This horn comes with the original main tuning slide extender, and there are little tick-marks on the slides to let the player know how far to pull out each one to convert it from F to Eb. Everything on the horn is original, and it has has some past repairs: a small ridge in the bell has been rolled out and on of the braces to the main tuning slide has been re-soldered, and there is a bit of singed lacquer at that spot. Most of the original lacquer is still there with a few scratches and cosmetic blemishes throughout. Plating on the pistons is great, and everything functions just fine. No case or mouthpiece with this one.
$275

Next up is a nice Olds Ambassador straight tenor trombone. This one would be great for a doubler out there looking for an inexpensive, but quality jazz horn or something similar. most of the original lacquer is still there, with a few spots of cosmetic wear on the handslide brace and other high-contact areas. Handslide moves fine, as well as the tuning slide. Handlide lock is not original. This horn includes what I believe to be the original case, as well as the original Olds mouthpiece.

Located in central Illinois, shipping via greyhound preferred, or local pickup if you're in the area.

The Eb/F horn is fun to have around and works well for the older materials that have Eb alto horn (not saxophone) parts. I keep one around just for fun. There aren't very many of these 'convertable' horns around. Good price for a fun horn.

Actually, they were made to go with the Trombonium, not the baritone. The baritone, or as it is now called, the American Hybrid instrument, was the mainstay of concert bands from the it was invented in the early 20's until British-style euphoniums took over.

Thanks for the kind words, Dan! these horns are quite fun indeed and great for older band rep.

Yeah, I knew about the trombonioum, but I was including the altonium, the trombonium, the bell-front baritone and the old-style 1241/2341 tubas in the same "series" seeing as how they were all recording bell horns of generally the same configuration made by King. I chose the baritone out of that list to compare to the alto just because I know of a few marching bands that still use that style of alto along side that style of baritone (Notre Dame for example) but I don't know of any ensembles that still actively use tromboniums. That's the only reason I didn't mention it, although I probably should have, they're really cool horns as well!
