If anybody has any reservations about this horn, wants to try it out, and is somewhat close to New York, I'm willing to drive up and meet with you; of course up to a certain driving distance. Feel free to make a low offer as a starting point so we can come to an agreement. The only downside with the horn is that the trigger is "frozen" because it has not been used in a long time, which can easily be fixed with a cleaning and lubing.

I had a few offers on eBay, but there's no way I'm selling this horn and case for under $50, like many of the low-ball offers I received. The case alone is worth $100. If it was for parts, sure I'd let the horn go as scrap metal for a low price. But this horn still plays, and the case is still in great condition. The only major downside to the horn itself is some wear on the stockings, as shown in the pictures. If you would like to make me a low offer as a starting point, that's fine, so we can both come to an agreement.

This is my first time hearing of this brand of horn, but I assume that something coming from Kuhnl & Hoyer is wonderful. When I looked it up, it said the interesting bend of the tuning bow makes for having a very open high register and eliminates disturbance reflections. Would you be able to shed some light on this with your own experience, and possible comparison to other horns?

There's one on UK eBay. He says he only wants to deal with local pickup, but maybe you could talk him/her into shipping it?

What model? 18h? I tried to grab one of those a couple months ago, just to see what it sounds/feels like.

I have no idea. I have never seen one of these Coprions in real life, and I'm ok with that because I'm set with all of my horns right now. The herd is too big as it is. I just know that there a bunch of people out there who love these horns. I'm not posting the horn for sale, so any questions about it will have to be directed to the seller.

I was looking around Facebook Marketplace and came across a Conn Coprion for $250. It looks like it's in pretty good shape for a great price. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1578882548840038

Here is a Giddings & Webster Harry Watters small shank mouthpiece. I got this as a trade from another forum member and have been playing it since the beginning of this summer, and it's been great. It's the older first generation they came out with, with a heavy top that looks like a mini-birdbath. The rim is very comfortable, and this has been a great mouthpiece as my main jazz piece. However, I recently scored a great deal on a new Harry Watters mouthpiece, which is lighter, and has suited me better. I never have been a fan of heavy-top mouthpieces, but this has been my exception. But now that I have 2 Harry Watters, I'd like to let this one go. The other forum member bought this brand new when they first came out with this model and has used it a lot ever since, so it shows some wear with the insertion marks and rim marks. But since these are stainless steel, these little wear marks don't affect playability. I'm also throwing in a Sucker Mouthpiece Pouch I got brand new on eBay a few years ago. It has Velcro straps and it doubles as a mouthpiece cover while your horn is on a stand (that's what the eBay description said). I'm also throwing this on eBay and the Facebook page. $100 or better offer, CONUS shipping including. If international shipping is under $15, I'll cover it.

Check out Michael Medrick's post for the mute bag: http://tromboneforum.org/index.php/topic,102659.0. There's also a bunch of posts in the classifieds listing the mouthpieces you're looking for.

19  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Tuning in Slide vs. Tuning in Bell on: Oct 14, 2017, 06:21PM
I'm glad this thread had some traffic. Thanks for all of your comments.

Moving the tuning mechanism to the handslide allows an instrument designer a few different options. As you mentioned, it allows a smoother expansion of tubing in the bell section, without adding two cylindrical sections. It also gives a manufacturer different options for placement (or non-placement) of braces in the bell section. On a horn like a Conn 70H or a Greenhoe with TIS, the large opera-wheel mechanism adds quite a bit of bracing and mass to the slide, too. This often necessitates a lighter bell in order to balance the playing characteristics of the horn. All of these things have an effect on the resonance, tone and playability of an instrument.

Not a better way of making an instrument, just a different way. As with any instrument, play a few first and decide whether that style is for you.

I went to Dillon's today and had some fun with the bass trombones over there. I finally tried out a Kanstul 1662i they had with TIS. It played great, and it did feel like the mechanisms were heavy, with a fairly light bell. The slide was not as heavy as I thought it would be. The sound was very hard to place, and like a lot of people said on this thread, it's a completely different animal. Great sound, but not what I was looking for. I had my eyes on an independent Bach 50A3 with Hagmann valves, but it was not a good fit for me. I ended up finally making a choice of dependent Rath R9 with Hagmann valves. I was so used to independent F/Gb/D, but this sounded so great. Just the right amount of warmth, great projection, it can bite great...there were so many great things about it. Probably the big winner, aside from what I liked about the sound, was the ease of playing in the basement with the valves; they were so open feeling, even more than the inline independent version of this horn.

Cliff Notes version: I finally was able to try out TIS firsthand on some different horns. The sound is great, but not what I was looking for. And, I'm happy I finally got a great horn, even though I wasn't expecting to fall in love with first blow from the Rath R9 I picked.
