Frank Holton: trombonist and band instrument manufacturer — 3 Comments

  1. I have my father in laws trombone dated 1908. It is sterling silver. He played ina band until he lost his right hand in a machine an could no longer play. That was in 1928. It is a treasure. It has not been played since but was kept in very good working condition. He was born and raised in Thorp, Wis in 1896.

  2. I have a Frank Holton “New Proportions” cornet that I found at an antique shop in decent condition, but I have fixed all issues that it had since then. All original parts and pieces, even case. The serial numbers date back to early 1907. It’s a fun horn to play on, has a very mellow tone, great for slow jazz.
