Notes and Quotes

1930s Ohio Band catalog:

The sparkling brilliant tone that is expected of any fine trumpet, is obtained with surprisingly little effort on THE REGENT. It is a long flowing, perfectly proportioned instrument, properly balanced and attractive in appearance. Greater value has been designed, embodied and built into this fine trumpet, with its lightweight rapid valve action, than in many instruments which are offered at much higher prices.
