1  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: .500/.525 on: Oct 16, 2017, 07:16AM
We had (or Have) about 6 of these at the school I used to teach at.
They have lasted much longer than I thought they would

That`s the same bore configuration as the Conn 32H
3  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Conn 32H, new to me on: Oct 13, 2017, 03:47PM
I tried that configuration and found that it lost a little of the core of the sound. more diffuse.
and the tuning got a little off. The 7 1/2" Bell gives the horn more punch
And the other way around with the 32H bell and the 78H slide was just weird.

I`ve had 2 32H`s over the years and loved them (along with 3 78H`s) They are really great horns

I recently bought an entire silver plated Canadian Brass Trombone. Nice horn.
Maybe I need to play it more but, it doesn`t seem to want to blend like my 42BO does.
But I`ve never played a Getzen before and everything does take time ti "learn the horn`s quirks"
Dark sound , good upper range.

The Quartet I play with has a good 2 Conn/2 Bach blend.
At one time it was 88H, Conn Bass, 42B and King 4B
The 4B just didn`t play well with the other horns. He settled on a 42B and our sound as a unit is much better.
I also have a Silver Getzen Canadian Brass horn that also doesn`t fit the quartet sound either.
8  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Repairs, Modifications and Maintenance / Re: Bach 16M slides? on: Oct 06, 2017, 06:54PM
I have a number of small bore horns (mostly Bach) 2 12`s one 1990`s (Gold Brass bell & Light weight slide) and the other 1965 Elkhart but Mount Vernon parts
King 2B+ SS and the mother of all small bore horns .... a Bach Lt 16MG with a Kanstul H8 lead pipe - NOTHING plays like this horn.
My other horns play amazing and I`m not saying  anything against my other horns but... this Lt16MG is soooooo far above anything else it`s amazing
9  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Re: Smaller large shank mouthpiece opinions on: Oct 03, 2017, 04:33PM
I believe that Bill Pierce played a Bach 12 not 12C.
I played for years on a Bach 7 custom made in 1979 with a Bass shank.
It was my go to mouthpiece for years. I just switched to a Doug Elliott set-up.
I use Doug`s 98 rim which is 7-ish in size paired with an F cup and shank

I have very little experience with Edwards horns but.. at the ITA conference when it was at Eastman I tried the BEST .508 horn I`ve ever played.
It was an Edwards with a Red Brass bell and tuning slide, nickel gooseneck, sterling leadpipe and light weight slide.
But the price tag was not in the budget

Rockymountaintrombone,
I have a straight Silver plated  Canadian Brass model.Love it. Thick dark sound. But it is a heavy-er horn. A little front heavy even with the counter weight.
I was just interested in everyones opinion
12  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Light weight straight large bore on: Sep 28, 2017, 01:27PM
I`ve been wondering about a straight 42 with a light weight slide (.547) with the light weight "Friedman) bell

I have lunch every Thursday with a Gentleman that was one of Eddie Palmieri`s bass players in the `60 & `70s.
He worked wit Barry. I asked about him and he said that Barry was a really nice guy knew that music inside & out.
14  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Re: Jet-Tone Design on: Sep 28, 2017, 06:36AM
Jet Tones like the Lindbergs and some other mouthpieces, worked incredibly for certain players and not for others.
I`ve played with people that got the most beautiful tone on a Jet tone and sounded awful on a Bach. and visa versa.

I have a wonderful Bach 42BO that plays like a dream. But... I`m interested in looking for a Light weight Straight large bore horn.
For smaller ensemble stuff and possibly some combo work but I don`t want a heavy horn. I have a mount Vernon 36 so please don`t suggest that horn, looking for suggestions for a light weight .547. It`s about the sound.
Thanks
16  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Accessories / Re: Case for a straight small bore on: Sep 27, 2017, 04:14AM
When ever I travel with a small bore horn I use one of the old French style Bach cases. I do play Bach`s.
Not a lot of storage but they fit in all the over heads. And when flying that`s what really counts

Very cool.
Thanks for posting the pictures
18  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Raw brass 36B closed wrap tone! on: Sep 26, 2017, 04:44PM
I`ve had 2 36`s over the years. My 1st one had no lacquer and it played great.
Got rid of it when I happened on a Mount Vernon 36 that plays even better.

The last time I saw Chuck he was walking thru Eastman and the students thought he was a homeless guy that wandered in. He didn`t look good.

Salsabone. From 1989 - 2011 I played almost exclusively in 3 pc horn sections. Loved it. Some tunes just require single hits like the video. It`s part of the job.
I had the luxury to be in Bands that allowed to do some very creative writing for the section. More soli sections (like Chicago) as compared to other bands that had yet another Sax solo.
I had a blast playing with some incredible musicians that are still my good friends
