I found this incredible early model Olds Mendez Trumpet in beautiful condition.
Sold by the original owner. I was excited when she agreed to sell it to me, but even more excited when I laid my eyes on it.
No Dents and only a few minor pings. This horn has a Relacquer (in the 90’s)
This Olds Mendez is in amazing condition. I can tell that it was greatly cared for.
The valve action is very responsive and I’ll be taking it into a local shop for a sonic clean and tuneup. If you look closely, the only thing lacking is that the etching on the bell is fading.
Serial #: 176341
Manufactured in the fall of 1955 in Fullerton, CA.
