2  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Brand loyalty (?) on: Jun 26, 2017, 03:38PM
When I was coming up in the musical world in Rochester, NY, you played Conn`s . More specifically , Conn 88H`s.Growing up the shadow of Eastman School of Music and Emory Reminton, You played an 88H. All my Trombone Teachers were Remington Students and they played 88H`s. I owned and 88 in High school and all of under grad. After Graduation, I briefly owned a Yamaha 645, Didn`t like it.
So I "had" to play a Conn, so I started playing 78H`s . I owned 3 and loved them. Then went to a small horn and owned 2 32H`s but went back to the 78H.
In my early 50`s , my sound concept changed and I was mature enough to realize that the sound in my head was not what the Conn`s were giving me. So I swtched to Bach`s, Bach 36. Suddenly the sound was coming into focus.. Love the 36`s (I still have a beautiful mount Vernon 36) . Now my loyalty goes  to Bach. I now own a 12G, 16Mg, 36 & 42BO.
Now I`m suddenly becoming fasinated with other horns. I bought a 2B+ SS last year, a Yamaha 321 bass (needed a Bass and the price really called the shots) and I just purchased a Mint Getzen Canadian Brass Straight Tenor..
Has anyone else had brand loyalty issues, I have a friend that loves Kings and specifally 2Bs . He had 8 2B`s and a couple 4B`s
Just Curious

Well my Canadian Brass Horn came yesterday. I can`t stop playing it.
Beautiful full dark sound, great slide, slots really well.
Not a huge difference when going from my 42B and the CB. I`m really loving it.
Mine is a straight model and silver plated. Got the horn from the Brass Exchange.
Doug is a wonderful person to work with.

I`ve played this horn and it plays like a dream.
I`m Guessing (and only guessing) that it`s a strange daul bore like a .516/522 beceause of the way it felt and played, could be a .508/.525
Beautiful dark sound and plays really open.
I`m not the seller, but want to let the trombone world here know about this

Has anyone played/owned one of these? How do they play compared to an 88H or a 42?
I know that`s subjective but do they lean more towards a cConn or a Bach - generally speaking?

With bigger corks would it work as a Bass Straight mute?

I was in the market for a large bore with an "F" Attachment not too long ago. A friend of mine has a HUGE collection of horns (around 300) and said he look for some.
I went over and tried an 88H, Yamaha (not sure of the model) an ugly 42BO and something else that got disqualified real quick.
The Yamaha played very easy but was a bit too bright. I tried to darken it and it would over time
The Conn sounded good but felt like work to get the sound I wanted.
That ugly 42BO played like a dream. That rich thick Bach sound and it played very easy.
I bought the Bach and love it.
Now I`ve a Bach  player for quite a while so I think that influenced my decission but I really gave the horns a run thru.
We played duets all afternoon on each horn to really give them a fair shake
Of all the 42`s I`ve played (I`ve had 2 before and didn`t really care for them) this one Rocks the Boat.
