I just bought a used yamaha 321 Bass trombone. Great horn - Crappy condition case.
Has anyone used or using this case? Pros/cons?

Talk with your Band director or private teacher and practice rather than trying to get advice from people that don`t know your playing,

I recently picked up a barely used BA 11C. Not an 11C at all. rim feels like a Bach 7. still getting used to it. Slots really well, and has a good upper range.
I was surprised at the look. From the pictures I`ve seen it sort of looked like an old Giardinelli but seeing it in person it reminds me a little of the design of the old Herco mouthpieces
or this mouthpiece that Wayne Andre played back in the late 80`s
Tomorrow will be the 1st boig test in a resl life situation

I had one of the Al Cass models . It was hard to play and made the trumpet play really really flat and wouldn`t slot

Then you have the fact that, as in my case, My over-all tone quality has gotten darker as I`ve gotten older and my sound concept has changed too

I really like the Bach Gold Brass bells, They give me the sound I want at all volumes.
My 42B has the classic Yellow brass bell and give me that classic Bach large horn sound.
My Large bore Holton has a light weight slide and a Red Brass bell. Nice dark rich sound . It`s heavy and lots os overtones.
My 2B+ has a sterling silver bell.  Dark at PP to MF / Bright from MF up
That`s my set-up

Then you have the "V" shaped ones - Jet Tones & Giardinelli
Rounder designs - Hammonds, Griegos, Warburtons
Bach Artisans vs King 28/29  - Look very similar

One of the great Dual Bore horns was the Conn 32H .500/.522

Thanks, Doug

I play a Doug Elliott on my 42B and 36. I would like to have a general idea of cup depth. His web-site gives comparisons on Rim size but nothing re: cup depth.
I use a "E" cup on the 36 and a "F" cup on my 42B.
Any idea of the Bach comparisons

There is a little joint just north of Rochester, NY on Titus Ave called Murph`s. They have HANDS DOWN THE best burgers I`ve ever had.
Worth the trip

I have a wonderful Lt12G that I love. Not a Sterling bell one.
What are you asking?

I`ve used Pint glasses (glass & plastic), coffee cups, bowls etc.. they can have a cool sound but they are hard to manage. I can`t really make the horn "talk" with those
18  Creation and Performance / Performance / Re: Why not the small bore for "legit" or classical style playing? on: Feb 22, 2017, 10:43AM
I recently retired from Teaching and we moved to FL. I`ve since been asked to play in a very good Trombone Quartet and a large Brass Ens.
For the first time in years I have a need for a Large Bore horn. For years I didn`t own one because, I didn`t need one.
Now that I`m older (and hopefully wiser) I GET how to play a larger horn. In college and beyond I could never really get into playing .547 horns.
I had a lot, a couple good 88H`s , 8H, 42. 42B and a Benge 190. They were all good horns but I couldnt do them justice.
Now I bought 4 months ago a used 42BO. It`s looks like hell but plays like a dream .
I now understand Jay Freidman`s comment on how he plays that huge set-up . (and I paraphrase) "I play it like it`s a small bore horn".
I now don`t approach the larger horn any differently that the smaller horns and it works for me
Just my 2 cents

I have the Weril Alto. It`s a great little horn. When I was looking for an Alto, the Weril felt and sounded the best out of the box.

There`s a Trombonist in Philly, Brian Pastor, that does The Philly Pops and his own big where he solos quite a bit all on a 4BF, and he sounds great
