Hello.  I have two brown zipper Bach trombone cases for sale.  Should hold anything up to a 42.  On one of them, the little divider where your rag goes is a bit loose, but the case works fine. On the other, things are peachy.

8  Classified Advertisements / Classified Advertisements / FS: Tenor - Williams Model 4 on: Today at 02:35 PM

Another amazing horn looking for a home…

Up for grabs is this very fine Williams 4.  How does it play?  Much bigger than you'd think.  Problems?  The lacquer is very softly crazing, which actually looks cool, but is very subtle. 


It's a great recording horn, and a beautiful ballad horn, too.  Warm, dark sound and mechanically perfect.  Have a look at the pictures and see what you think.

One more cool thing: It has a custom-made Cronkhite-era Reunion Blues 2-piece bag made specifically for Williams.  Neat!

 If interested, make me an offer.

9  Classified Advertisements / Classified Advertisements / FS: Tenor - Bach 36 Hagmann (Osmun, Edwards) on: Today at 02:33 PM
 Thinning  the herd.  This Bach 36 is truly one-of-a-kind:

Bach 36 (near-mint condition)
Hagmann valve (Osmun-installed custom job)
Edwards .525" N slide (beautiful)

Everything about this horn is fantastic except for a subtle crazing of the lacquer on the valve section.  I'm not sure what kind of lacquer Osmun used, but it's crazey.  Get it?

Below is a description I received from the original seller:


One of the characteristics of a Hagmann valve is the valve bore and F attachment tubing match the slide.  That is, for a .525" bore horn like the 36, the Hagmann valve and tubing have a .525" bore.  Bach uses a .547" bore for their valve and F attachment tubing, on their 36B's.  Similarly, on a Bach 42, a Hagmann valve & tubing would have a .547" bore like the slide.  A Bach 42B valve uses a .562" bore and tubing ID for the F attachment.  A Bach 50B uses a .578" valve and F attachment tubing ID, while the standard bass slide has a .562" bore.
 
Actually, what I have said about the stock Bach F attachment horns is not entirely true.  The stock Bach valves lose some cross sectional area thru the valve.  That is, a 36B's rotor might neck down from .547" to..530" on the way thru the valve.  A 42B's rotor might neck down from .562" to .535" or something like that.  I had several Bach basses in which the rotor opening necked down from .578" to around .550".  Osmun has a routine that opens the Bach rotor back out to what it should be.  The modification makes a significant difference.  See "Open Rotor Ports" under "Trombone Services" at:
http://www.osmun.com/services/trbserv.htm.
 
Osmun's surgery is impeccable.

10  Classified Advertisements / Classified Advertisements / FS: Tenor - Earl Williams Model 8 (Burbank) on: Today at 02:32 PM

Earl Williams Model 8

Specs:  .522" bore and a 9" bell.  Just what I was looking for last year and finally got it.  To me, Earl should have considered a greater angle on the gooseneck to bring the slide away from the bell edge.  Just my opinion on ergonomics, though.  It's a hell of a player.

This horn is a great player and in fantastic shape, as the pictures will show.  But first, a bit of history.  This instrument is allegedly one of a set of triplets commissioned by Allen Ostrander for California State University in Sacramento.  Comes with traditional spit valve installed but also the Earl curvy one, unmounted.

Included is the original wood case stenciled with CSU, and also the original pegboard slide box Earl used to ship it, with the original labels.  Very cool and undeniable provenance/pedigree.

I really like the way it plays.  Totally unique. 

Original lacquer in great condition with a some light surface scratches.  No dings and dents.  Slide tubes have no wear.




Pics:



































































































































Interesting double-stamped S. on the Cal-State custom stamp:
































































This isn't a little grub.  It's Earl's spit valve, which was never mounted.  I suppose Allen Ostrander ordered the horn with standard spit valve and Earl included it unmounted.

Extremely surprising to hear that an R9 is playing sharp.  I assume this is not a problem with you other horns?

I also double tongue it.  SLOWLY.  Then over the course of time you can speed it up.  Once it's muscle memory, it'll be a lot better.

I played it for a month.  I didn't love it.  I'm not evil. 

I think.

Funny enough, I orchestrated a version of it a long time ago, but it wouldn't be useful to you.  I reharmonized it and played it on a recital.  It was a lot of fun.

I'd hope there's a full orchestra version, but I've never heard it.
19  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Earl Williams Trombone on: Jun 09, 2017, 02:50PM
I am just going to play it for a while. Oddly this has a 9" bell. SOmeone on the forum stated that Allen Ostrander had 3 special made w/9" bells for a University in Ca. Sliphorn is his handle. I assumed this had an 8.5 bell. Whatever . It plays .  What is the normal bell size for an 8? THere is no stamping identifying it as a Univ horn as the other one had on the main bell brace  flange.
I believe the standard bell size for a Williams 8 or a 9 is 9".  And yes, very cool horns.  Glad you like yours.

PS - When I said Ostrander ordered these horns custom, I didn't mean the bells were a custom size.  They're stamped CSU, which is custom, and also mine has a standard spit valve with a curly one ready to install if the player wishes.

Never even heard of it. No idea what it does.  But I'll be watching this thread.
