F E Olds & Son L 12 Flugelhorn serial number 301009
This brass is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-10-30)
Price : US $790.00
For auction - An F.E. Olds & Son Flugelhorn, model L-12. Not to be confused with later Olds Flugelhorns of th '70's. The L-12 was much earlier. This example with serial number 301009 dates to about 1959.
The bottom sprung valves are tight, compression is excellent and there is no 'blow through'. I find that, this 50 year old flugel's valves work faster with a heavier weight valve oil - not the newer synthetic oils.
There are no triggers on this horn, and are really not needed. The instrument plays well in tune. I have played it professionally and leave the third valve slide pulled out about 3/8 of an inch which seems to be all the compensation needed.
The bore is medium at .437
It wears a 5.75 Inch Bell
The case is original and in fantastic shape
Lacquer is original, has a darker patina with normal scratches for its age.
Dent removal was professionally done before I bought the flugel
no dents of any significance and the few dings are hardly noticable
