the satin  job costs 500  //new mts=100
==========================================



Looking to sell a Satin finished King 3B. I picked this up from DJ about a year ago. Satin Job was done by ACME Trombones. I've since switched to a Conn and love that for what I'm doing, so this needs to find a new home. Slide is about an 8/10, but I'll see if my tech can't make it a 9 or better.  I'm asking $1350 shipped, comes with an MTS case. PM me on here for pictures.

Best,

Josh

this  trombone  was recently  owned   by CLARK GAYTON [in recording sessions all week w STING]   has the  look 
aaron chandler  did  slide  and dent workup  ////i  bought  another  opera  --to get  the case
 MV 12  --theres  one  on eBay this  week @ 200  !!!!!!--they are  a  BIG  HORN esp after  2b size
 horns  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  //



Actually I'm not new to Olds horns, having played a Recording many years ago.
Later, I also made acquaintance with Supers, a Studio, and even a P-16.

Not too long ago, a TTF thread mentioning Bill Pierce got me - once again - interested in Olds Operas. What a sound! Till then, I'd always shied away from large bore horns due to my chronic asthma, but finally I decided to have a go at it.

Okay - but where to get an Opera in good shape at a reasonable price? The answer - you guessed it - DJ Kennedy.

Not only did he have a very nice straight Opera 'at hand', he also found me an excellent case for it as well as a MV12 mouthpiece (what else?) that I had asked him for. Because at the moment he didn't have a fitting MP adapter, he himself made one for me from a sheet of sterling silver, with engravings and all it takes (that's why I call the horn my 'sterling Opera'). Kudos to DJ for his support and dedication!

So, since a few days, I'm getting to know this horn. A wonderful sound, like a bell, so clear and pure! On the other hand it couldn't feel much heavier if it really was made from sterling silver. Being used to playing lighweight .500 horns it's a challenge for my left shoulder. But certainly it's worth the effort and I don't regret my decision. What an adventure!

today  was asked  to find a silver bell
---------------------------------------
 the  easiest  solution   a  bell  with  screw  on  flare 
----------------------------------------------------------
flare  22ga///stem 22
----------------------------------
 my seeker  asks   how those    threaded  parts  affect  the  sound 
=================
 one aspect  of   one  piece  bell  is  that  the same  gauge  is used  thruout
-----------------------
 there  was a  long  detailed  connversation   w a spinner 
 and  22ga was   usually   it   for  a one  piece

yes   prices  on 3b  are  elevated  at this  moment 


I'd be expecting to pay a lot more than £750 for a 3B in good condition in the UK at the moment. I know a couple of people who've paid over £1k for a good example.

ha  ha  ANOTHER  ONE  ????????????????????



Have a real dandy of a Silversonic laying around? Does it play as nicely as it looks? I'm only interested in the cream of the crop, not a quick buy. Let me know if you have something on the market.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a fine boning!

HN White LLC usually has pristine versions of the horn you want from the 60s and early 70s in stock. For what you want, creme de le creme, it's going to cost more than just "a little pocket cash". Good hunting!

DJ, is this the one at Best Instrument Repair? If so, I probably played on it yesterday. It is missing the Williams water key (King water key in its place). It plays pretty well. I think it is on consignment and they are asking something like 2350.

merry   freezing   your  buttski  off     !!!!!!!!!
  clemintine   is  trying to get  another  williams  THEN  a lawler  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Word on the street is that Roy will soon (if not already) offer Butler Carbon Fiber outer slides as an option.  As mentioned before, I have one for my Lawler .500.
I'm actually using an Earl Williams Model 4 right now on my ship gig (wanted to try a size smaller for my dance band gig), but I miss the Lawler.  Wish I could have them both out here!
