No longer looking to trade. Noticed a small divet in the the rim today when I got it out which I hadn't noticed before. I don't think it affects playability. Email for pics. Asking $45 for the shank, $65 for the cup, $70 for the rim. OBO for the whole mouthpiece. Email for pics, offers, questions.

Cheers,
Leo

Up for grabs is an older Getzen 3047 AFR. I had it mechanically reconditioned a year ago at CIOMIT in Colorado. (Extremely thorough cleaning, dents removed, slide job, valve job) They did an excellent job and this horn is really a player now. There is no lacquer on the bell section. (Just the removable portion.) With a good polishing it looks very nice but it is currently developing a light patina. The lacquer on the rest of the horn is roughly 70-75% with lots of small battle scars in the finish and a few more prominent scrapes and portions with finish worn off completely on the valve/tuning slide section. There are no real dents left in the horn. Running your hand over portions of the bell may reveal a few remaining tangible irregularities that I can't visually pick out. There is visual evidence of a repaired bell crease.  The slide is really quite good, I would put in the 8.5/10 range dry. The valve has been very well cared for since having the work done and all I really have to say is that it plays like an Axial Flow and functions exactly as it should. After I got the horn back last summer I played it for roughly 2 months total between then and now.   It just does not get many miles from me and would be a great horn for someone desiring this flavor of large bore tenor, especially a student.  I'm asking 1250 shipped without a case. (If no case is an issue we can discuss that privately.) I'm also interested in trades full or partial for a King 7B/8B, Benge 290, Tenors with Hagmanns, or the right Holton TR 181. Email me for more pics or any questions, offers, etc.

Just found a typo in the original post.  Elliott rim is LB W 112 Lexan.

Testing the waters to see if anyone has a 7B or 8B that they are looking to part with. Played one at an audition earlier this year  and was pleasantly surprised, would be used for a gig/utility purpose where the Rath doesn't necessarily belong.  Shoot me an email if you have something.  Thanks.

Looking to sell at this point, just another neglected mouthpiece that should be played.  Would make a combo with the Elliott piece I have as well.  Still interested in headphones/amps you may have but mostly looking to sell.  Shoot me an email for pics, offers, or questions.

Had a few close sales/trades fall through due to no replies.  Just wanted to add I'm interested in Elliot gear around 1 1/4 size as well, 110/112 rim, K and L cups, L9/8 shanks. Or other items in that ballpark. Let me know what you have or if you have an offer. 

Cheers,
Leo

Title says most of the story. The piece is in good condtion with a few little nicks in the finish. Email for pictures and you can see for yourself rather than relying on a description.  Looking for a Minick L or Ferguson copies, Griego pieces around 1 1/4 size or a Pickett 1.6. Also interested in headphones and heaphone amps. If you want to buy it shoot me an offer.

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.

17  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
