        OK for beginners, but not the best

        Comments about Olds Intermediate Bb Trumpet:

        This is a decent trumpet for a beginner, but you should really get a better one if you can afford it. A beginner is more likely to stick with it, and will have an easier time learning, on the best beginner or intermediate instrument that you can afford. I bought this trumpet for my daughter 1 years ago; she had been playing for 3 years by then. She likes this trumpet enough, but I knew nothing about how to choose a good band instrument when I bought this. If I knew better back then I would have chosen the Getzen 700SP. It is more, but it is a much better instrument by a more reputable manufacturer. Do not confuse today's Olds with the Olds of the past. They are the same in name only. Olds used to be among the best. But the original company went out of business in 1979, and the name is now being used for inferior instruments aimed at students.

        My daughter loves it!

        Comments about Olds Intermediate Bb Trumpet:

        First off, I must admit that I'm not all that knowledgeable about trumpets. I took lessons for a year when I was 10-11, but I didn't get too far with it. I play guitar now. But my daughter has been playing trumpet for more than three years, in her school band, and I bought her the F.E. Olds Advanced Student Trumpet a few months ago because it's about time I upgraded her junky old used beginner trumpet. We picked it out together. She loves it. The valves operate very smoothly, it has a nice rich sound, and she really likes using the 1st valve slide hook. Both slides move easily, and the two-tone finish looks great.

        Horn plays very nicely....but

        By You can call me Ray

        from Lawton, OK

        Comments about Olds Intermediate Bb Trumpet:

        In July 2003 I received an OLDS NA100ZU (now discontinued advanced student model) trumpet as a gift from my wife. Right away I had problems with sticking valves which proved to be due to extensive premature wear of the valve pistons, despite frequent oiling. Upon contacting OLDS about the problem I found them to be very friendly and cooperative in correcting the problem under warranty. Several months later the horn went back to OLDS again for correction of an "acid bleed" problem that was causing discoloration of the lead tube beneath the clear lacquer finish around the lead tube/main tuning slide joint. They also agreed to correct that problem under warranty, but I am not satisfied with the quality of the refinish job they did. Since replacement of the original valves the horn has played very nicely, with no sign of wear on the new valves to date. I'm just not very happy with the cosmetic quality of this horn.
