Salvation Army Trumphonic Class A Vintage Tuba Or Tenor Alto Horn For Restoring:
Purchased with all good intent to refurbish and restore to original condition, this is a rare Salvation Army horn I believe it is a Tenor Horn, when I purchased it I was told it had hung in a garage for over twenty years and looking at the discolouration of the silver plate I can well believe this to be true, it is offered as a restoration project, the basic condition is good with fewer dings than others I have seen, the valves all operate although I have never opened them, the compensation slides,two work as the should, one was taped and on removal it slides but is missing a inner slide, the final slide is tight and needs freeing, I believe the plate is in good condition under the filth, I polished the area by the engravednames and it cleaned to as you see it in minutes so a good hour would make a wonderful improvement.
In good condition these have sold for upwards of $500 in the USA, this one although sound need somebody to repair the slide, re-pad the valve tops and finger press and give it a good clean and polish, there isn't and case nor mouthpiece.
