  1. Holton with a trigger

    I Have a Holton I can't identify. Looking for a little help.

    Bell says

    Frank Holton & Co.
    Elkhorn, Wis.

    Valve casing also says Frank Holton & Co.
    Elkhorn, Wis.

    Ser # 396xxx

    It has a 1st valve trigger.

    Anyone know what it is?

  2. Most likely mfg. in 1965-1966. This I believe was the previous name of the Holton T101, which was a close copy of the Bach Stradivarius. (does it look similar in bracing, etc.?). Would guess this was a semi-professional level trumpet of it's time.

  3. Yes the bracing does look very Strad like. So If it was manufactured in 65 or 66, does that make it a Leblanc? Even though it appears to be manufactured in Wisconsin?

    I just got one of those horns. I love it! In fact, I think it's the very same horn!
