    The "Opera" model was the only Large Bore trumpet Olds ever made, having two different models made: the "Premiere" (all nickel plated) and "Fanfare" (primarily a brass trumpet with nickel plated outside). The "Fanfare" model (O-112) was only available in the early years of productions.


    From Olds catalogue: "This large bore Opera model represents the ultimate in symphonic tone. Count fifty measures rest - come in FFF in a high C - and do it with the confidence born of a hundred such successful entrances under pressure. The instant response and powerful tone are products of Olds engineering and design skills producing a prestige trumpet for prestige players. Lighting fast valve action, extra large bore, nickel silver, first valve trigger tuning mechanism, mouthpipe taper for extra resistance"
