We are happy to answer any questions. Up for sale is a Silver-plated and gold-leafed 1918 York and Sons Professional Tenor Trombone made in Grand Rapids Mich.
The serial # is 510xx. The bell is beautifully engraved and has a gold washed inner bell. There are various small dings and pings throughout, with a slight wave of the bell rim.
There is some wear-through and pitting at the grips, neck brace, tuning crook and slide crook. The slide action is good, especially for the age of the instrument. There is mild wear-through of the silver-plate on the inner slides.
This instrument has the normal original bronze stockings of the period, which are in good shape with good compression. The neck to slide connection is a friction-fit. The horn comes with a used case and mouthpiece(may not be the one pictured). The instrument is not lacquered; therefore, it may have to be polished periodically (we recommend using Weiman METAL Polish). 468, with 7 bell flare.
This is a great horn in very nice condition and plays beautifully, with a silky smooth full tone. It has good intonation, good power, and slots well.
