I have an LA Olds Ambassador laying around that I would like to send on to a new home. It's pretty beat up and might be best used as a parts horn, but it is 'playable' as-is. As you can see, someone started 'hand-hammering' the bell, and a few braces need re-soldering. The valves are fairly smooth, but they bounce (probably could use fresh springs). I did a compression test when I first acquired the horn and I remember they were OK, but I will double check this and update. No case or mouthpiece included.
I'm not really sure what a horn like this would run as a parts horn, but I'll start it off at $50 + actual shipping. I'm also interested in trading for: mouthpieces, cool mutes...basically any kind of cool trumpet stuff. Or a few skype lessons if you are a pro. I never learn my lesson, so I'd also be interested in trading for other vintage project horns +/- some cash.
