F.E Olds and Sons Sousaphone - UPDATE - In Progress Photos!

So far I have stripped the lacquer (although some tarnish remains to be removed), removed most of the dents and patched the screw holes left by a previous owner. The next step is to finish the fine dent work, polish it up and spray it with a fresh coat of lacquer. For those with a keen eye, I am aware that the #3 slide doesn't have a water key. It is still a work in progress.

  1. How Did you get an Olds brass sousaphone?! (Nat McIntosh uses one so I've always wanted to find one) If you can fins another one, please let me know.
