Olds Trumpet & Cornet Ambassador and other professional models such as Mendez
This kit is everything to rebuild vintage OLDS valves.
This kit includes:
3 new springs
3 green top cap felt
3 cork and 3 white felt stem washers
2 black foam spit valve pads
3 Valve Guides
3 Ring Seats
The original Brass Valve Guides and Ring Seats are no longer available from our supplier and these Nylon Guides and Seats are direct replacements. These are very sturdy and work equally well in our tests in many OLDS vintage Trumpets and Cornets in our repair shop.
We have tested these Valve Guides and Ring Seats in the following vintage OLDS Trumpet models:
Ambassador Trumpet both those made in Los Angeles and Fullerton
Ambassador Cornet made in Los Angeles
Mendez Trumpet made in Fullerton
These should work fine on many other models of Olds trumpet and Cornet valves. The F.E. Olds company during this time used the same valve guides and seats in many of their trumpet models.
