This King trombonium is in good condition! It has 75-80% of the original lacquer with some visible lacquer wear over the entire horn. There is some light denting almost entirely confined to the outside bow. Most of the dents are light however there is a section towards the top of the outside body where we would consider the dents to be medium. Please see pictures of the bell as there is evidence of bell dent removal. There are a couple of re-solder points visible to some of the braces on the horn. The detachable bell has no bell tightening screws as it looks as though someone has soldered the bell to the body so that it is fixed in place. The serial number is “434635” making this a 1965-1970 vintage trombonium. The engraving on the bell reads “King Trombonium King Musical Instruments Eastlake Ohio”. No mouthpiece is included with the instrument. It comes with the original King case in older used condition. There is a very small corner of the outside of the case that is broken off. The valves are excellent condition and it plays very well with that iconic King warm sound and good overtones.
