1  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Accessing the high register on a Holton tr-150 on: Aug 13, 2017, 05:56PM
I can say that all the Holton tenors I have played have been a bit wonky as far as intonation goes.  Other players have reported to me that they thought otherwise.  But I would try other leadpipes.  That is just me; YMMV.

Folks, as a reminder:

Unless you are buying from someone you know (or otherwise trust because of their track record), ALWAY pay using PayPal and make it a purchase.  Yes, you may have to cover the PayPal fee (usually 3%) but you will have protection against scams.
3  Teaching & Learning / Practice Room / Re: Can I get bottom C on single plug bass trombone? on: Jul 31, 2017, 06:08PM
For the singles I have played, the C is more realistic than B.  I can get a C on my Bach 50B with the slide practically falling off and some lipping.  But the B in unattainable.  I assume this is because the positions are slightly longer when you put the horn in E or bE or whatever...

Yes, there were several versions of the French case.  Some a little better than others.  But they were all good cases.  And they were ALL better than the big brown rectangle that replaced them!

7  Practice Break / Chit-Chat / Re: Fish tacos. on: Jul 29, 2017, 04:51PM
When I first moved out to (So.) California 20 years ago, a friend took me to Rubio's for my first fish taco.  I didn't know there was such a thing, being a New Englander.  I couldn't believe how good they were!

We make them at home now but when I get them out here in San Francisco it is at The Taco Shop at Underdog's in the Outer Sunset.  They are excellent.

$500 includes shipping.  Buyer pays any fee. 

That is right, folks, a large-bore Bb/F horn for $500.  Get it while you can!

In a GOOD year, a couple of 175F's will appear on eBay. 

(I have played two examples.  There were somewhat disappointing.)

The finish is interesting.  Looks like the bathroom light fixtures I saw the other day at Lamps Plus!

I tried CitriStrip on the orange stuff once.  Nothing.
13  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: BAC Bass for $9000??? on: Jul 27, 2017, 04:50PM
Well, it's obvious that the thread has become all about bashing BAC because high level trombonists wanted some bling and made some dumb moves, as far as endorsements go. That's what this is about.
...

Nope.  That is not what this thread is about. 
14  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: BAC Bass for $9000??? on: Jul 26, 2017, 07:33AM
I picked up a bass trombone with some BAC repairs and custom split triggers.  Now I have to have an actual professional repair tech replace everything... correctly. 

One more data point.

Who cares about functionality when it looks cool?!...

Yes.  I PM-ed you.

I have a fantastic early 3B+F in California...

I also think the 4B valve section idea is good.  As is the 607/608 idea...

Holton slides are too small for a 42 bell section...

$550 for a well-used large-bore F-attachment Yamaha trombone!  Hi  Bell has evidence of repaired crease, valve works well, there is a patch in one cork barrel, the slide is decent (8/10), inner tubes show no plating wear, and the non-original case is in decent shape.  This horn has been around the block once or twice but still plays well and sounds great.

Here is one of those rare opportunities for budget-minded players to get into the large-bore trigger horn game for small money.

You pay shipping.  I cover any fee.
