Both of these are in absolutely excellent condition and will appear new to you.

  • $110: Doug Elliott MB (Medium Bass) J cup and J8 shank.  Lexan 108 rim.  This is a GREAT bass mouthpiece on the order of a "larger" 1.5.  I used this for about two years steadily but am now moving on to a larger DE setup. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BylugfqBVvinTjlXSGlmcWMyVVU
  • $50:  Stork B1.5 Heavy weight:  I got this to experiment with and used it for only a few weeks.  It's essentially new.  I rather like it and feel it's in the "small 1.25" category compared to a lot of other mouthpieces I've tried.  This is the standard (7.5mm) backbore.  But it's had the end of its shank chamfered like the symphony models do. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BylugfqBVvinc2w1bnBPUTBybHc

Selling to a CONUS address only and will include Priority USPS shipping.  Paypal only.

If the construction of the horn and the alignment of the valves are good then the only thing to fix is the player's approach. Clean the valves and the horn and check if they are lining up when opened and closed. My problem with the 181 I had was double valve notes. Of course I was in HS and have worked much more on playing bass since then. On one hand you may also be someone who likes more open valves and axials may be a better choice.

My Holton has a removable section that allows me to play G and thatís what I fune it to. Iíve noticed itís not just single triggers but also both. And to me the second trigger gets stuffier sooner than the f. But that could be me not being used to using the second trigger alone.

I have seen posts on this Forum raving about the SM57 and I challenged them b/c I didn't want to see the argument, "Well, they MUST be good mics b/c everybody is using them".

The SM57 is a workhorse stage mic but there are many better options for studio recording. Powering a horn section through the monitors and mains is a much different task than accurately recording for playback.

Virtually any large diaphragm dynamic mic would provide better trombone results in the studio. There are a lot of old radio designs being resurrected as podcasting and voice-over mics that also work great for general use in the studio, on vocals, horns, kicks, room. Shure SM7, your EV RE20, variants of these, others. Just steer clear of kick-drum specific mics in this space, they have a huge scoop in the middle right where we would probably want a little boost.

Another physical factor is parallel walls which most rooms in houses have. Most rooms in homes have rectangle shaped rooms. I'm assuming that most of use spare bedrooms for our home studio.

You could alter at least two walls with partitions or something to offset the facing walls that are parallel. Hopefully finding a solution without too much expense. If you are going to put accoustic panels on a wall, build a temporary 2x4 frame, to install the accoustic panels, to offset it from the parallel position. Do this to two walls, and you will do away with the parallels.

The valves are probably fine.
Dont natuarally assume that its the valves because of how the Edwards blows. There are more differences between an Edwards and a 181 than just the valves.

There a some on here who know a bit about Holtons. They may make some suggestions. One of the things I found when I had a 181 was how easy those notes play on the 2nd trigger. F Eb and D when played on the Gb valve play completely differently to how speak om the F valve. Try it. If the notes sound great on the Gb valve then you can probably look at the issue a little differently.

I think you're right. And the importance seems to be:

Bass traps in the places where walls and floors meet

wall accoustic panels

wall accoustic deflectors
