1  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Kuhnl & Hoyer 122 alto on: Yesterday at 12:22 PM
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'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?

12  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.

14  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Bach/Yamaha on: May 26, 2017, 03:16AM
Some do but they don't all have the same tenon. Which model?

Yamaha YSL 645 ; 525'' slide, Bach 36 bell section
15  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?
16  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Re: No sizes 8-10??? on: May 12, 2017, 01:26AM
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.

Perhabs you like more the rounded rim contour of the Bach. DW have more flat rims
19  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Re: Denis Wick Comparison (7c) on: Apr 29, 2017, 07:59AM
different throat, DW 7CS 6,24mm, Bach 7C 5,8mm
diferrent cup diameter DW 25,4 mm  Bach 24,75mm
