$550 shipped. If you have any concerns about the description please contact me. I can not modify the original post so I will add a few items here. The "minor damage" on the ends of the inner look like someone had dropped the slide on the ground at one point but they are smoothed out now and aren't of much issue. This horn is definitely worth what I'm asking and would make a real player. Email for pics or questions.

Cheers,
Leo

Selling a 3B with a 1977 bell and 1960 Slide.  The bell has lots of little dings including a nickel sized one on the flare and a penny sized one on the tuning slide. (Does not affect tuning slide movement at all) Lacquer has been removed but the horn is well polished and looks quite good. Really a great bell all around particularly for Latin and Rock/Funk type settings, has a nice brighter sizzle when pushed.  Definitely very playable.  The slide is off of a 1960 H.N. White 3B.  I has some dents in both the inners and outer with some light damage to the ends of the inners, however there is not plating wear that I can locate. Would rate at a 6.5 or 7 out of ten, definitely needs work though. Both slide and bell are very clean and have been through the Ultrasonic cleaner in the last week.  This would be a great horn after a slide job and would be a great first 3B or "gig" horn. Currently asking $650 shipped. No case unless you want the alligator skin coffin it came in, if thats the case you pay shipping. Make me an offer, all I can do is say no. Email for pics and questions.

Cheers,
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.

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

12  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Re: Pre Prana Monette on: May 26, 2015, 11:02AM
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

I use my Eastman primarily for 2B's and 3B's.  It fits snug for both horns with enough open space to have an accessory bag (The type you would find in a Reunion Blues Bag.  The slide doesn't move around and stays in place as it should.  I have put large bores with attachments in it, yet IMHO I think the design functions better with a small horn.  I got mine from Horn Guys for around $200 shipped if I remember correctly.

My previous school owned a bunch of their tenors.  Hard to produce a solid core and the slides were pretty flimsy.  It felt like it would break it my hands.  IMHO there are much better Chinese alternatives such as those previously mentioned.  Just my opinion.
