cool! how did it play?

intonation was good. Tone, small german tenor like. But the handling was bad, front to heavy, no balance

Hello
somebody here, who have experience with the Marcinkiewicz 10 vs the Marcinkiewicz 11,
sound and balance of the two pieces? Both seemed to be nearly the same.

New York Collection Trombone Mouthpiece K28
Inner Diameter : 9.32" or 23.673mm
Bore Size : .234" or5.947mm

These duplications of the original New York Models have proven to be among the most popular of the entire New York Collection.

This cup is very deep, especially when seen in comparison with the small size of the rest of the specifications. The rim is very rounded. This model is available only in the small shank style.

The Bach 6 3/4C has a well rounded rim, also the Bach 8 1/2 BW but with a very wide rim.
Take a look here

great work Noah.
my T. Mittag alto is in yellow brass too. I like the look without any nickel parts.

perhabs a bit out of topic.
I've noticed that many lower notes sound better on my alto when i play them
in outsite slide positions.
For example:
  b on 6th posisition.
  b   on 7th position.
   b  on the 5th position.
 
13  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Romera brass on: Aug 28, 2017, 01:46PM
I would like to share my experience with Romera brass.
Their website is really great. Overview of the numbering system makes it easy to order. Good contact, emails are answered almost immediately.
Toni Romera is a very nice guy.
I ordered two mouthpieces. An alto with a cup deep of 22 mm and a
throat of 5.5 mm, and a jazz, cup deep 25 mm throat 6.0 mm.
Both with the round rim. You can choose between a rounded rim,
like Bach or a flat rim like Wick. The workmanship is first class.
The mouthpieces are slightly heavier than a standard Bach.
The round rim provides a secure hold on the lips. The response is great.
Tone binding is easier than with any other mouthpiece i have played.
You can have all models also with screw rims, brass or plastic and in large or small shank version.

Romera mouthpiece  Good!

15  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Throat sizes on: Aug 25, 2017, 11:20AM
Hello,

Some manufacturers call their throat sizes in letters.
How is the diameter of an A, B, C, D, E, F, throat?
16  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Kuhnl & Hoyer 122 alto on: Aug 22, 2017, 12:22PM
i once had have a Kuehnl & Hoyer Slokar alto. The slide action was great, but no secure 7th place.
Intonation was great too. Real good craftsmanship.

To be fair, there are at least two makers, Patrick Fraize and Michael Munkwitz, who make a copy of Viennese baroque and classical tenor trombones - but unfortunately, I don't know anyone who plays one (or had even just tried one).

here are the two links
