Please contact me by email through my website (www.itsabear.com
). I have been seeking information regarding Vincent Clarke (in particular, his use of one of the early Olds double-rotor bass trombones) for quite some time.
John, I wish I could help but you must understand that we are talking about events that occurred some 50+ years ago. I don't even know if Mr. Clarke owned an Olds bass trombone
. I know he was impressed with the brand new Olds Ambassador bass trombone that my high school supplied me with because he once expressed an interest in borrowing it to try out in a Montreal Symphony concert. I would love to be able to help you out but I am kinda doubtful on that score, what with the lapse of half a century or so. Pleasant memories though.
