Yes, the 3rd photo is an Eastman case - sorry for confusion.

The Yamaha case will hold an 8.5" bell or smaller.  I compared it against my contoured Xeno case.  Identical.  These are protective cases, are very light, and will hold most Yamaha horns and other with "normal" dimensions.  The fit is perfect for an 882 model with closed or open wrap.  But NOT the 882OR.  The F wrap on the OR model is too wide.  The fit is also perfect for the other medium- and large-bore Yamahas, w/ and w/o an F-att, I have tried at various times:  445, 645, 630, 640, 683, and 620.

...
I'm want to try a wide glide crook which has a .547 I.D. and also a 4B crook which I don't know the dimensions of yet.

Although the 4B with the small shank adapter blows better than I'd feared I don't think it is a viable long term solution for me.

I am a little slow...

You are saying you want to put a 4B (or similar) crook on your 3B+ slide, right?  I think a single-radius crook, like the 4B crook, would be a good choice.  I have a beater 5B slide.  If you want, I can pull it out and check the condition of the crook.  I don't recall... but the horn, in general, had a long and active life...

This is a Yamaha contoured case for medium- and large-bore Yamahas.  Pretty much identical to the Xeno cases.  Well-used but fully functional with plenty of life left.  Has a very slight perfumy smell.  Very slight.  This case was once owned by the great Cuban trombonist Juan Pablo Torres, so it's got some good mojo in it!  Guaranteed to improve your playing!

1.  Bach 36B.  .525-bore with F-att.  From 1986, I believe.  Mint condition.  Looks like a new horn.  Valve is like new.  Slide is 9.5/10 - perhaps the best Bach slide I have ever played.  Awesome.  And, more importantly, this is a great playing 36.  Non-original case in good shape.  $1750 shipped CONUS.  International shipping is possible.

2.  King 607F.  .525-bore with F-att.  Stenciled as a Besson but obviously a 607.  Very nice playing medium-bore horn here!  Poor man's 3B+!  Slide and valve just serviced!  Ultrasonic cleaning!  Original Besson case is in good shape.  $550 shipped CONUS.  International shipping is possible.

So... "Something else" will include a lot, won't it?...  Yellow brass, red brass, rose brass, gold brass, sterling silver, nickel silver, ...  All the most common bell materials.

And I don't know what phosphorous bronze in - guess I won't be checking that one off. 

The post above is correct: these polls are stupid.

Correct.  The 3B+ slide is the same width as a 3B.  A 4B slide is much wider...

Is this the one you have?

https://www.hornguys.com/collections/trombone-cases/products/eastman-cabt-16-bass-trombone-case

The Reynolds single probably would be fine, but it looks like there's an accessory container where the double's f tubing comes forward under the bell... but if it's movable/pliable, that might be an option.

Yes, that is the one. That area is not a compartment - just a block of soft foam.  (And the edge of it has some Velcro to hold a slide receiver spacer thing.)  You could cut it away easily.

YOU CAN trade  4s    and  listen to your  78s
  but the  wide receiver  number  8
isnt  open for a pass

Yeah, that is what I have been trying to say!

It is an older 8H case.  No, an 88H will not fit without some modification.

You are right - thanks.  (The mind is the first to go... )

I corrected the post above.
