    Hi all
    Finally, after years of life things being more important, I have the money and cannot for the life of me find a Super Recording!

    I've seen a few on AliExpress but know nothing about buying from China and have heard a couple of scare stories about good fakes coming from there....anyone know anything about this or have any warnings?

    So if you have a Super Recording OR can shed any light on buying instruments over AliExpress then please get in touch!!
    :thumbsup:

    Have you tried Centex Brass? Clay often has them, I have bought several horns from him, good to deal with.

    It took me several years to get mine, last minute sniped on a couple on ebay, eventually got a very nice 1949 from Quality Brass at a very reasonable price.

    There is one for sale at Oz Winds here in Australia, beautifully restored to as new condition, AUD$4800.

    Regards, Stuart.

    Cheers Stuart. That one looks lovely but I'm now kicking myself for not checking Clay's page this week! :roll:
    There's one there I could stretch to....time to dust off the wallet.
    Just goes to show, sometimes it pays to think aloud!

    i have bought a couple horns from Centex Brass. Clay is great and knows his stuff. A.N.A. Mendez knows his Olds horns too and he has great connections and I think I have bought at least one Olds horn with his help. You can't go wrong with either of them!

    Great thanks. Please message me with any details.

    Any headsup on Aliexpress though guys? I'd just like to have a clue about whether these horns are ones which have been bought and restored to 'look' good enough but could be full of rot etc....OR whether they're potentially fakes....(though feeling that's a stretch)

    Shop olds super recording online Gallery - Buy olds super recording for unbeatable low prices on AliExpress.com

    There's one there who's title/subject line is taken straight from an old ebay listing of QuinnTheEskimo (I recall him selling a couple of old bangers there a year or so back)

    Aliexpress is like any other internet store with multiple 1000's of items/sellers. Some are good and others not so much. Your link did not take me to the Olds. As a matter of fact, using their search bar, I never got to any Olds trumpet. I do now know that Trumpeter makes model aircraft!

    Looks like they have copied ebay listings on their site.... What do they do when you try to buy ? Go find one ?? I don't get it.... :-?
