Whatsa King Cleveland 605.  As usual, I know nothing.  Thanks for putting up with my ignorance -- again.

It's an old King student model horn.  Still plays better than most of today's student models though.

Nice student model trombone.  I bought mine new in 1973.  Sold it for the same money in 1981.  My case held up, but some others of the same vintage didn't.

Perhaps replaced by the Cleveland 606?

The 605 is a student model and I think it's a straight .491 bore. This was my first horn and I've still got it, bought in 1975. Last year I sent it off to be overhauled as it was really beat up. Got the slide back a couple of weeks ago from the Slide DR and my old horn is alive again.
I'm sure the 606 replaced the 605 in the King line up, but if I'm not mistaken the 606 is a straight .500 bore.

we still have many old King horns in our rental fleet... sooner or later the inner slide will start pitting and get holes (usually around 30 years old)  until then... they take a good beating and keep on playing (and being fixed)

I had one.  My parents bought it, new, for me in 1974.  It had a great slide and had the "carry-all" case.  I played it through high school and used it for lead trombone as a college freshman.  Nice horn, even today.  I sold it to a student in 1985, and she used it through high school and 2 years of college marching band.  She's my neighbor now...I wonder if she still has that horn?

My first trigger horn was a King 607F (.525 bore with f attachment).  I wish I had it back.
