Early F. E. Olds & Son Ambassador LOS ANGELES, California

  • 1948 Olds Ambassador Los Angeles

    serial 41595


    Developed by F. A. Reynolds in close collaboration with Raphael Mendez. Arguably, the Ambassador is the most famous student trumpet ever made, produced with the same care and mandrells than professional trumpets. Olds was, for its entire history, a one-tolerance shop. That is, all instruments were made to the same level of quality. Therefore, the Ambassador was subject to the identical quality control as other professional horns. The Ambassador was never a lesser version of the Mendez, nor was the Mendez a sophisticated version of the Ambassador. Those players sufficiently astute to ignore the stigma of the Ambassador being a student trumpet are well aware of this.
