Sure makes the bell engraving look good!

WOW a blast from the past! A friend of mine bought this in high school. I think he's playing a 42B? FATNESS & FUNK!  :D

Sale did not happen. One DE mouthpiece back on the "For Sale" list. Just $150.00.  Good!

Interesting. Active sound cancelling with a number of profiles & the ability to mix ambient audio with the program. Could be useful in a rehearsal situation if tweaked correctly. Too pricey for me, though.

 :D I thought Nanook might have an opinion on this one!  :D
My sister played that album for me when I was in Jr. High School. I never have really recovered.

Play Bruce Fowler's Be-Bop Tango solo from Zappa's "Roxy and Elsewhere" album for her.
If she survives, you know you have a winner!  :D

Price drop for complete mouthpiece- $150.00

You might just like a full Elliott setup. 

Doug adapts mouthpieces for his rims so I guess he could fit your 59 to the 102 rim.  But it may not be cheap.
The website says $60.00 for the threading, with a possible $15 - $20ish extra charge for re-plating, if required. There may be restrictions on what he can mate up, depending on how well the actual inside diameters match up. Source: recently contacted Doug about putting one of his rims on a Stork. (The mouthpiece!  :D)

Yup - thanks, Stan!



Circle of life...  :D
I bet it works great with that horn!

Hey, is that my ex-Schilke 58 plugged into that slide?  Good! :D Good! Looks kinda familiar!  :/

And he got that buttery tone with what most of us would consider a mis-matched setup, a small diameter mic and large bore horn. Anyone know how different the more widely used 12C differs from the old 12 he was using? Those are pretty scarce, AFAIK.

It looks like a screen saver... Pant

The horn of choice for Slide Hampton, for many years.

Another vote for the Sony 7506. I had a problem with the cable on mine & was able to purchase & install an aftermarket replacement, straight instead of the stock coiled cable. The earpieces are getting a bit worn at this point, but I can also buy replacement extra-padded ones to replace them. Looking forward to hearing great sound on some big fuzzy earmuffs!

Stuart Dempster did an exhaustive book on the subject, The Modern Trombone: a Definition of its Idioms. Out of print, AFAIK. I have a copy of the book, but the "soundsheet" records that had recorded examples are sadly long gone.   Don't know

I tried posting a photo to Twitter,which I haven't used in ages. You may need to click the link.
Under the scruffy exterior is a short length of plastic tubing to act as a base, then a bit of gaffer tape & moleskin on top. It's homely, but hey, it works for me.

On my small horn, a frankenbone with a Tempo bell grafted onto a 3B slide, I do a thing involving Moleskin, gaffer tape (the good cloth kind - for sanity's sake, avoid "Duck Tape" and similar plastic-backed heavy duty tapes like the scourge that they are...) and a bit of plastic tubing. I end up with a soft version of a Williams-style curved grip. Will post photos later today.
Not sure how effective Moleskin is as a moisture barrier, however. It's not terribly thick, but it does have a plastic backing.
