I have a silver tone Holton trumpet my father bought me in 1981 from a guy who played in the band at Walt Disney World. We were living in Orlando, Florida at the time. The Serial number is 472164 and has the holton emblem on the brace between the upper and lower part of the tuning slide. Any information you can give me on this would be great.

most likely mfg. in 1969-1970. Holton made a few models that had an emblem on the brace of the main tuning slide. Can you read/describe anything on it? Also, any unique markings on the bell or lead pipe?

The trumpet has the the word HOLTON on the top of the bell. Nothing special about the wording. There is another number on the slide just forward of where the moutpiece is inserted that read T401. The symbol on the brace of the tuning slide is the Holton emblem with the French horn looking instrument depicted on it.

Thanks, T401 is the model number. It is a ML bore (0.459"), and I believe it has a smaller bell (4.5"). This was a semi-pro trumpet model. Here's some more reviews on my sister site (http://www.brassreview.com/reviews/showproduct.php/product/1205/sort/8/cat/37/page/1)

Hope this helps -
