This King 5B Symphony trombone is in very good condition with 70% or more of the original lacquer. It has medium wear over the entire horn and the wash on the bell is fantastic. You can feel where a small dent or two were taken out of the bow but it is impossible to see. Please see pictures for details. The slide itself is super smooth and clean. The slide serial number is “4548” and the bell serial number is “531738” making this vintage mid 1970’s horn. The engraving on the bell is still clean and reads “King 5B Symphony King Musical Instruments U.S.A.” The trombone comes in a good used condition King case. No mouthpiece is included. This horn has that classic, powerful King sound. It feels evenly balanced in your hand and the slide works great. The powerful sound that it produces is really amplified in the lower register. It is a nice full, beefy sound!
