So.....I won a bid for an Olds Super Recording on Ebay (Still can't believe it). I have wanted one of these gems for a long time, but suffered from empty wallet syndrome. Well, company hade a good year, so I pulled the trigger.
I opened the original case, and a huge musty smell took me back a step (Obviously been closed up for a long, long time). I took that step back and toughed my first Olds Super Recording (that's right, never even touched one in my life). I swear, I heard the angels sing!
Condition is what I expected. Remarkably, only two small dents - but for the crinkled on the bell. Everything was extremely dry, but all the slides came out - with a nice pop. Yup, my biggest fear is averted, as the valves look very good. I would even say exceptional.
So, it's off to Charlie Melk's on Monday or Tuesday. I am not even going to play it yet. I want my first blow on a SR to be something I will remember!
Thank you Santa!
BTW, A.N.A Mendez - after the SR is done, I may have to get to California so we can get these twins together.
