King 2B Liberty Vintage 1945.  Professional players, this is the best playing 2B that I think I have ever had in.  Was overhauled at some point in it's life with re-lacquering.  Who ever did the work did an outstanding job, because it looks and plays great.  The slide is fantastic.  Has serialized matching tuning slide too.  Horn was part of a collection sent in recently by a music educator who's father was a trombone player.  This horn was made right around the time that WWII was nearing the end, and The Big Band Era was in Full Swing.  Big Band Musicians, especially trombone players, namely,  Dorsey, Miller, were like the rock stars of today.  This is a piece of American Musical Culture that remains with every trombone player today.  This horn was very likely played on in one of these legendary bands.  If this horn is continued to be maintained properly, there is no reason that it should not last for the lifetime of the next player. Is the type of trombone that a pro player could develop his style and career on.  Non-original King Case (1970's) Included.
