F. E. Olds and Son 1931 - 1950 --- Frank Ernest Olds started making small bore trombones
in the first quarter of the century, and in 1931 was joined by his son Reginald Olds. The
company was then renamed to F. E. Olds and Son.
Olds & Reynolds --- A variety of model names were used for brasswind of this company
such as: Recording, Special, Super, Opera, and their most successful student model
Ambassador. After Olds and Reynolds were purchased by Norlin Music (formerly Chicago Music
Instrument) they had other established manufacturers produce their Woodwind line in the
early 70's (i.e. Armstrong).
If you note any discrepancies, or have
additional information concerning this company, we would appreciate it VERY much if you
would pass it on to The Music Trader. Thank you!
