Review: 1957 large bore model w/ 1st and 3rd slide triggers completely restored to like new condition. An excellent horn, every bit the match to the revered Olds Recording. Great range of tonal characteristics from sweet to majestic. Cannot overblow this horn...it just lights up w/o becoming overly harsh or bright. Valves very smooth and quick w/ short stroke...almost Getzen-like. Valve feel not as solid as a heavier vintage Bach 37 and I would prefer stiffer springs. To top it off...a drop dead georgeous horn!
