1  Classified Advertisements / Classified Advertisements / FS: 1979 Olds Opera Symphony 0-25 on: Oct 17, 2014, 08:14AM
I am selling a mint 1979 Olds Opera Symphony 0-25.  Red Brass Flare, .553 Bore, .562 through the rotor, 8.5" bell.  This horn lived a sheltered life being moved from closet to closet.  There are few minute scratches, but this really is a beautiful example of this model. I play primarily small bore and this horn just doesn't get played. Comes with original coffin case which is also in fantastic condition.  Selling for $1200 shipped to CONUS.

Pics: http://s456.photobucket.com/user/brimanzappa/library/1977%20Olds%20Opera%20O-25%20Symphony?sort=3&page=1 Title says '77.  That is incorrect.

Pm, or email with any questions or offers.

I use my Eastman primarily for 2B's and 3B's.  It fits snug for both horns with enough open space to have an accessory bag (The type you would find in a Reunion Blues Bag.  The slide doesn't move around and stays in place as it should.  I have put large bores with attachments in it, yet IMHO I think the design functions better with a small horn.  I got mine from Horn Guys for around $200 shipped if I remember correctly.

As always when it comes to Olds, JohnL has the best info,  Thanks John. My time capsule 0-25 also came with an Olds 15.

My previous school owned a bunch of their tenors.  Hard to produce a solid core and the slides were pretty flimsy.  It felt like it would break it my hands.  IMHO there are much better Chinese alternatives such as those previously mentioned.  Just my opinion.

This will be my first year attending JEN; I will be playing on the night show on Thursday January 9th with the Crescent Super Band with Randy Brecker and Ed Calle.  (http://jazzednet.org/1/en/2014EveningConcerts).  I would love to say hello to any forum members attending and play with some of you at the jam sessions. 

Just wondering who's going,

I have seen that stamp before; when I bought a Holton French style case for $7 at Pawn Shop the trombone that came with it had a similar stamp but it is not the same horn.  It was not worth fixing, so I made it my lawn ornament.

I could be mistaken but I thought a jiggs was a straight .500.
Don't forget about the K&H Bart van Lier (.480/.488, .500, or .512 with or without F attachment (new alternative to a 3BF, eh?).

Also the Kanstul 750, 1550, aforementioned 1555, 1602-B, and 1606 (Williams 6 copy). All .500.

Holton 66 Galaxy. (.485/.500)

Yamaha 897Z (891Z and 697Z have already been mentioned). .484/.490. A Yamaha YSL-354 can be a great horn. (.500)

Conn 100H. (.500)

Getzen 1050 (.508), 3508R (.500/.508).

2B Jiggs. (.491)

A plethora of student models, all .500.

pBone. :-P

Dave Panichi uses one with his 3B Silver Sonic and get a really rich but nimble tone.  Just sayin.... Way cool

Knowing what we know about the whole debacle of dating UMI Kings I think this is as far as we will be able confirm.   Yeah, RIGHT.  Thanks for helping to date this!

13  Practice Break / Found on the 'Net / Re: Millennium Edition? on: Jul 27, 2013, 04:24PM
My serial number is 932xxx.  I am already aware of the different dating used in 90's up until 95 because I had to date my 4B.  I thought the for the horn to be a 93 it had to have 43 as the first 2 digits in the serial number.  (Just like my 1992 4B has 42 as the first 2 digits).  Other charts for serial number charts I have read would put my horn from 1983-1984.....So what year is my horn actually from?
14  Practice Break / Found on the 'Net / Re: Millennium Edition? on: Jul 26, 2013, 09:56PM
If I have time to get to it I will get you guys the first three digits of my serial number tomorrow.

Thanks for the input everyone!
15  Practice Break / Found on the 'Net / Re: Millennium Edition? on: Jul 26, 2013, 05:46PM
I was using the serial number.  If I had purchased the horn originally I would have been negative 11 years old!  ;-)  :-0

My horn is a 1986, other than it being a 2b it is the same as the one eBay.  I had never even heard of a Millennium edition so I figured I would see what the deal with that was.

17  Practice Break / Found on the 'Net / Millennium Edition? on: Jul 25, 2013, 10:19AM

He calls it a millennium edition in the description.  Is this a real thing?  I have the same finish and engraving on a 2B.

I found a thread from 2009 that talks about a silver Super : http://tromboneforum.org/index.php?topic=47678.msg668351 It's a satin finish as well. I hope shakshak doesn't mind me sharing a couple of his pictures here.

Thanks for all the response!  After hearing some opinions I think I will hold off for the moment.  In the rare event I have money laying around for something I would use as more of a "toy" (A very expensive toy) I will pick one up and let everyone know how I like it.  Until then thanks for the help.
