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.

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!

thanks Bruce
5  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Throat sizes on: Aug 25, 2017, 11:20AM

Some manufacturers call their throat sizes in letters.
How is the diameter of an A, B, C, D, E, F, throat?

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

Chip had a pretty severe health issue as of a few days ago  :( not sure he'll be responding any time soon.  You might want to read out to Wessex officially.

oh, sorry to hear this. my best wishes to him. hope he will be fit again soon

i have wrote a PM to chipolah, waiting of his answer

I'm a bit confused about the image of the alto trombone on the wessex website.
It shows two connections between bell and slide. A friction fit and thumbscrew
and a normal connection screw like Bach and other brands(see image).
Which is real?

Here, a link to an older posting about my Conn D alto

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

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?

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.

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

Yamaha YSL 645 ; 525'' slide, Bach 36 bell section
20  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Bach/Yamaha on: May 26, 2017, 01:45AM
does the threaded piece of a Yamaha slide fit a Bach bell section?
