(Posting this reply as an update; the original post is not letting me modify it.)

A couple more outgoing pieces. Will have A Doug Elliott to post soon.

Recently sold the 88H & converted to a .525 Yamaha 630 (thanks, forumite green bean! I'm loving it!) Selling mostly large shank pieces. Prices include shipping.

PM with your email for pics and a second chance to read the following copied & pasted text!  :D

1. Bach 7C, Faxx 12C & 5G.[/s] Very low mileage. $25.00 each, or $60.00 for the whole flavor assortment.

2. Set of 3 large shank backs with custom rim: Stork 6, Schilke 51B, Stork 6S. The rim is based off a Laskey, according ot the Forum member I bought these from several years ago. Not sure what model Laskey it was, but it is very comfortable & about the size of a Schilke 50/51. It fits all three of these mouthpieces, and has threads that are compatible with Doug Elliott LT rims. I would prefer to sell the custom rim and three cups together as a set, for a discount price of $150.00. Inquire if you really want to break up the Triplets! The backbores on the 6s & 51 B are the symphonic backbores. NOTE: A Doug Elliott LT rim will fit all three of these mouthpieces. I have photos of a Stork/DE combo. The DE rim also makes the cup just very slightly (by a couple of millimeters or less) deeper than the custom rim they came with. The fit inside the cup is smooth & seamless, but it will leave a bit of a gap on the outside.

3. Schilke 51D large shank in gold plate (Getting a little worn & faded, but still in decent condition)  $30.

4. Schilke 58 (large) rarely used & very clean. $30.

5. Vintage Jet-Tone Urbie Green model S. I think I've had it for 20 - 25 years. Not one of the aluminum ones. Some wear to the finish, and the shank is bare due to my trying to reduce its size to fit in an old funky East German-made alto that I owned at one time. I stopped before I could do any real damage to it. It's a little blurry in this photo, but the end of the shank is just slightly out of round. I have not noticed any problem when playing it. A minor adjustment with a backbore tool should easily correct it.
Couldn't find much on these. Generally, Jet-Tones seem to be a “love it or hate it” kind of thing. Asking $50.00, let me know if you're a fan. Due to the “unique” shank, you can try it for a week to make sure it's OK.

Feel free to make an offer on the whole Hee Haw gang. The more the less, if you follow me.... ;-) Hey, you could supply a jazz band and an orchestra with the whole set!

Thanks for looking.  Good!

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.

Added Dropbox link to photos & descriptions. The pages were displaying a bit funny when I previewed them, just be sure to scroll down.  Don't know

The Schilke 58 is spoken for.
Also, as a p.s., as other forum members have mentioned, please use the "Friends and Family" option in PayPal.
Oh, and I should mention, shipping outside of domestic U.S. address would be more, due to international rates.

Thanks!

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.

That Stork is interesting, I've had one for years but it's really working well with a new horn. Possible trade for DE rim, gold LT100N? Might consider trading entire DE mpc, message me if interested.

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.

Replied to your other post as well. I'm pretty sure I have a C2. LT100 lex is available.

I have a lexan LT100 that I can part with. Looking to replace it with an LTS51D. Possibly also one of the shanks you are looking for, but I will need to confirm in a couple of days when I return home. PM me & we can discuss.  Good!

Overbreathing - taking in more air than you will use - results in stale air left in your lungs.
The comments about too much carbon dioxide buildup and "may not be expelling enough of it on exhalation" are from this.

Remington and Reinhardt taught "conversational breathing" where you learn to take in just what you will use.  When you're speaking, you don't take a huge breath just to say "Hello, how are you today" and then still have a bunch of extra air in your lungs... you take in only what you need to say what you're going to say.  That is comfortable and relaxing.

As an experiment, try taking a full breath, say a few words, fill up again, say a few more words, and keep repeating that until you pass out - your lungs will be full of carbon dioxide.  If you play that way, you have the same problem.

This and SackbuttRoyale's post make perfect sense to me. I have sometimes noticed this while playing, although fairly infrequently. However, if I am in a chuch or chapel service, I just lay out if expected to sing the hymns . I almost always look like an idiot from stifling stage yawns.   >:( >:( >:(

On a possible tangentially related subject (mods feel free to move if you like) , does pulling & replacing a lead pipe on Yamaha instrument pose any unique problems or costs? Just got a YSL-630' .525 with the SS mpc receiver. A LS pipe would allow me to try my fave screw-rim Storks and Schilke 51B with the new hotness.
