King 3B Silversonic
Price $2695 Sold
Pulled out of a time capsule, this beauty was in a case unopened for 40 years, according to the owner. The horn was given to this colorful figure in the celebrity world by his Dad as a gift while attending Interlochen Summer Camp in 1966. The horn was put a way in 1970 and hasn't been touched or even looked at since. To the King Trombone collector and enthusiast, this could quite possibly be the find of a lifetime. For the serious jazz bone player, who is on that never ending quest to find that perfect 3B, this very well may be the end of the journey.
This horn was made in 1966, It is a Vintage King 3B Silversonic at it's finest. If you were to shop for a modern day sterling silver 3B with gold plating- the best price that you could find on the Internet today is around $3200. Ask yourself this question: If you could buy a brand new silver King 3B that was made in 2012 or open the time capsule and get the original, that is, the "Legendary" real deal, for the same price, which would you choose?
