Dear Friends,

on http://www.vioworld.de someone offers a single F-Horn made by "Olds Ambassador". It has string action, a wide bell and also the kind of tubing configuration let me think, that this horn is american made. Does anyone know this mark? I am a collector of single horns and I like to know more of this manufactor.

Thanks for Your help.

Martin

Martin:
The Olds marque is a good name - though, I'm not certain that a single F horn by this maker is at all collectible. They are a well made good 'standard' beginning single horn.
The Olds company was started in the early 1900's (around 1925 I believe). Here's a good link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F._E._Olds
