We have another amazing Olds trumpet here at the shop! This is a Rafael Mendez model, and boy can it play! This horn has a nice crisp and clean sound to it. It has triggers on the first and third valve slides. It has a few light pings and some very light pitting at some of the contact points. Mechanically it's in great condition. It is in raw brass and shows no signs of red rot. This horn plays well with thicker valve oil. The valve block, and other elements including the bracing add to the look of this awesome horn! We tend not to see a lot of these, so be sure to pick it up quickly!
The serial number dates this horn to the late 1950s.
Here's a video of a similar horn to give you a sense of the sound:
