2  Classified Advertisements / Classified Advertisements / FS: "Coin" King M21 on: Mar 22, 2017, 12:39PM
For sale is an old King M21 that appears to have been the original mouthpiece of a '48 2B I once owned.  It has the "coin" markings like those found the edge of a quarter.  I don't recall which size that makes this version of M21.  Has quite a few nicks including on the rim, shank is round.  I would say 90 percent on the plating. I think it is playable, would obviously benefit from an overhaul. Pics will tell the whole story if you're interested. Would prefer to sell it this week so I don't need to travel with it.  Make me an offer. Please use the email in my forum profile for any questions, pic requests, offers. 

Regards,
Leo

For sale is Mt. Vernon 12C in pretty rough shape.  No Plating, has been polished so it doesn't look too bad as is.  The shank is still generally round but is more elliptical than circular.  Light scrathes/marring on the whole piece. Rim is in surprisingly good shape.  Would prefer to sell it this week so I don't need to travel with it.  Make me an offer.

For sale is Gold Rath 1 1/4W.  This was my daily driver for a long time. The gold is lighter than a freshly plated piece, wear on the shank from insertion, one tiny little flat spot on the outer edge of the rim in one spot.  Does not affect playability, you won't know its there.  Overall great condition though, no damage.  Would prefer to sell it this week so I don't need to travel with it.  Make me an offer.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

9  Classified Advertisements / Classified Advertisements / FS: Eastman Bass Case on: Mar 06, 2017, 03:32PM
For sale is a Blue Pebble Eastman Bass Trombones case. I purchased it 2 years ago new from Dillons. It was the daily driver for an R9 for 6 months or so. It was just used to store a horn for the better part of a year and then spent a couple months hauling a King 7B, I have picked some cases that fit my needs better, including a leather Cronkhite before they disappeared entirely.  Simply looking to pass this on to someone who may be looking for one or is trying to get out of a stock case.  Condition has general wear including a fair amount of scratches. The inside is clean, however, the Velcro for the slide compartment quickly became ineffective. The easiest and most effective solution I found was using binder clips. There is evidence of their placement, and I am planning on including a pair for with the case.  A great step up case from the often times bulky square like stock cases that are out there. Includes original backpack straps.  Looking for $175 shippped OBO. May be interested in trades for various items. I will post a follow up with these.  Looking to move this relatively soon. Please contact me if you believe are interested. The best way to reach me is my email listed in my forum pfofile.

Thanks,
Leo

Thanks for all of the replies everyone! I know my school has a 3062 that's not in the best of repair hence my interest in trying that.  If not I will just have to keep my eyes open for the right bell at the right price (maybe the right 5B). Thanks again everyone. I'll be sure to share my creation if I end up with a cool combo.

Cheers,
Leo

I feel a little foolish for using the example I did, maybe swing charts were not the best situation to cite. I usually do just use my 3B in those situations, I have a very good low range down from false Eb chromatically down to double pedal Ab. (Although, the Rath certainly has made a few appearances too, stylistically authentic or not). I guess was just trying to justify my desire for a single valve bass with a real world application.  Evil  Regardless I was really just wondering if the 3062 bell would work if I ever happened upon a stray one for a good price. Although it sounds as if the 9.5 inch would be too big, maybe I would need a 9. Once again, thanks for the input.

15  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Getzen 3062 Bell on a 3047 on: Aug 03, 2015, 12:12PM
All,

For a while now I have been toying with the idea of getting a single valve bass for bands that don't demand both triggers and a huge a horn.  e.g. older big band books focusing on swing charts where there are sometimes only 3 trombone parts.  I was wondering if a Getzen 3062 Bell would fit on my 3047 tenor.  If it did maybe the flare would be too close to the slide, maybe it just wouldn't play correctly or be out of tune, who knows? This is really a shot in the dark, just wondering if anyone has tried it or has an idea of what the results would be. The potential to easily create a single valve bass using existing gear was too appealing to not investigate.

Thanks for your help,
Leo

All,

My band director's father is a bass trombonist of many years and he happened to be making a visit to my school last week, he brought a Pre Prana BT 2 with him for me to try.  I spend a little time on it in a free period of mine and spoke with him quite a bit about gear and what not; at the end of the conversation he simply told me to keep the mouthpiece!  :-0  I have been using it some the last week yet haven't really spent a ton of time on it (lots of tenor playing required lately).  I wanted to share my first impressions though.

I used it first in a Wind Ensemble and found that it played brighter than the G&W Chinook I usually use in that group.  It was easier to get a bigger sound on (part of this was due to the smaller size of course) yet it did feel noticeably easier to play.  To my surprise, the rim which is thin in comparison to previous preferences, was extremely comfortable and did not feel "sharp" like the Giddings sometimes does.  The comments I received from my director were that it blended better than I usually do...this was a shock based off of what I have read in this thread and elsewhere.  He described the sound as more present and somewhat bigger yet without sticking out or overpowering the section (which happens from time to time).  I personally felt as if it didn't project as much as it should have but I got different opinions from those on the other side of the bell.

I also played bass on the third set of a 3 set big band gig over the weekend (I usually play 2nd).  It was mostly dance oriented big band classics: Ain't That a Kick, Moon River, Sylvia, Lady is Tramp, How High the Moon, etc.  Once again I didn't feel like my sound was projecting enough but the bari player in front of me, a good friend who knows what I usually sound like, told me that it was a little much.  I adjusted and just focused on playing with the same air and sound concept as usual and this time I was thanked by the bari player.  I still didn't feel quite as comfortable on my end of the bell, but everyone seemed to like the results once appropriate adjustments were made. 

As usual a new mouthpiece can fix everything for 2 weeks so I will chime in with some long term results.  I will be playing only tenor for the next 3-4 weeks as I will be out of town for tenor requirements.  Hopefully I can revive this thread when I put some real time in on the piece.  I am happy with it so far, (maybe cause the price was right), and I am seriously considering looking into the BT 1 I was originally interested in at the beginning of this thread.  Thank you for all the previous input, it really has demonstrated that everyone's different in their taste.  Would love to hear some more comments, especially if you have had the same first impression.

BTW, everyone should wish a happy birthday to Miles.   :D

Cheers,
Leo

All,

Once again thank you for all the replies and advice.  I was not saying everyone was void of reasoning in my earlier post; just hoping to hear more.  I found one to try next week and will post opinions here afterward.

Cheers,
Leo

All,

To begin with I appreciate all of your replies.  I was hoping this wasn't going to turn into another typical Monette thread, i.e. a thread to tell one that they are overrated and not worth the money with little reason as to why.  If you have a complaint can you tell me why specifically it was too much money?  To further this though, maybe I could have been more specific as to what I wanted to know.  I currently use a Rath 1.5 W or 1.25 W for commercial and jazz type playing. The wider rim is comfortable for me in this type of playing and I love the sound.  I am looking for a bigger piece that gives a darker and thicker sound yet still retains a comfortable shape. I have been Using A Giddings and Webster Chinook for this, the sound is great but is uncomfortable to play.  Back to the Monette, this is NOT a 300 dollar mouthpiece and I am looking at a PRE Prana which can't be bought new.  Can anyone give their opinion about playing a Monette that exclusively pertains to pre prana pieces?  Finally, I do not need a lecture that explains I'm the biggest variable in sounding good, take my word for it, I know.  I am putting in the time, I'm just looking for the right tool for a specific need.  Thanks again guys!

Leo

I am looking at a Pre Prana Monette BT-1 bass bone piece right now.  I was hoping someone could offer any insight as to the differences between this and the newer prana pieces.  I have heard from a friend that own lots of Monette trumpet gear that the pre prana pieces are more conventional and can be played by a wider variety of players.  If anyone knows spec differences or has played both I would appreciate the input.

Thanks,
Leo
