3  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Slide for a Conn 88H on: Jun 18, 2017, 01:47PM
Hello,

I can buy a slide for a Conn 88H. The seller knows not much about the slide. On the slide is the number 308/93 engraved. Is it an original conn slide or perhabs a cheap copie?
Thanks

I'm pretty sure that combination won't work. But you can probably order a tenon from yamaha... I think they have a few parts from the 645 left.

Some of the 600 series do fit, at least nominally. Sort of like Edwards/Bach -> Shires.  Jeff Cortazzo did a gig with his Shires slide on my Doug Yeo (at the time) bell section... 622 I think... when his bell section got mangled by the airline and it worked well enough.  I don't recall HOW well.  Possibly not a good long term solution.

I might be able to check; making a trip to Dillon this weekend and if they have those mdoels in stock I can see if they'll fit.

Thanks

Some do but they don't all have the same tenon. Which model?

Yamaha YSL 645 ; 525'' slide, Bach 36 bell section

I think romera has a very clear numbering system. The first number is for the cup diameter, the letter is for the kind of the mouthpiece (A=alt, J=jazz, T=tenor, B=bass). The second number shows the cup deep. You can choose between two different rim contours. Cup depth and cup contour is displayed on graphics. A great website. I have ordered an alto mouthpiece which will arrived me the next few days. Hope the mouthpiece is so fine as their website :)

Chime in if your experience is different from mine. My flexibility is better on Bach rims than on DW rims. I know it from recent experience, but I don't know why it is so.

...Geezer
Perhabs you like more the rounded rim contour of the Bach. DW have more flat rims

different throat, DW 7CS 6,24mm, Bach 7C 5,8mm

13  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Warburton "Warbonite" Top on: Apr 21, 2017, 02:50AM
Today i received a Warburton "Warbonite" D Top, made of hard rubber. I have the same Top in brass.
When I compare both, the Warbonite has a darker and warmer sound and feels nice on my lips.
I love it from the first moment and it looks like made of dark wood.
GZ Warburton, great work.

Do you know why the French built their alto in D-flat?

the bore is very different to the Conn

The bell of my 34H is far away from the 3rd. If i put my special D-slide on the 34H, the bell is
exactly on the 3rd.
