Bought a 3B-F off eBay a few years ago for a really good price.  Seller had 0 feedback so it was a gamble.  He did his best describing the horn and sent extra pictures I asked for. Very few bids, and so I got a great horn for a great price.  $50 at the local music store for minor slide adjustments is all it needed.

I have meet a conductor named Bruno Campo that is from Guatemala City. He started up El Sistema in Guatemala and I can assume he has a lot of contacts. He is now living in Graz and is working with Superar (a el Sistema inspired orginazation) in Vienna. Could be worth sending him a question on Facebook!

Thank you. I will get in touch with him.

It is much better just to move an an area with high levels of humidity (or at least worked for me). However, I don't know how it would affect any hyper-tension or heart problems.

Hope you don't mind a brief interjection Ben, but I might be able to give an endorsement here since I owned everything spoken of.  

I owned a Shires T0825GLW slide that I purchased used from Dillon.  For one reason or another, it had a small bore Shires receiver on it and mated with my small bore Bach horns as well as a friends 36.  With the small receiver in my horn, it played rather flat on the Bach bells.  I'm sure there was something about the bell dimensions that made it the case. It was a lot less flat on the 36 I tried it with than the Bach 6 bell that I had.

I later had it converted to the normal, large bore tenon.  I had both a straight gooseneck, a straight Bach 42 bell section, a Bach 42G bell (setup for Shires), a Shires 2RVET7 bell, a Bach 36 bell (Setup for Shires), and a 2RM8 bell throughout various times as well as with a traditional rotor, straight neckpipe, and tru-bore rotor.  

The 508/525 slide is really quite versatile, and this slide worked the best with the Shires large bore bell sections, for me.  When I paired it with the Bach bells (setup for Shires), it was still a pretty great horn but wasn't as easy to color as I like as compared to the Shires bells.  When I put it on a Bach 42 bell section, I noticed the same effect but more exaggerated. So I think the bell was part of the equation, but so was the smaller neckpipe and probably the tuning slide and its results on the overtone series.

Another thing: At the time, I found that I actually preferred the Tru-bore compared to the neckpipe regardless of the style of playing I was doing. Gave just a little extra depth to the sound and didn't negatively influence my playing either way. Bear in mind that I'm used to playing large bores and basses, so that can obviously be qualified.

In short though: I would still very likely own it if I weren't an amateur at the moment.  I picked up a used small bore Shires and between it and my 547 horn... I just wasn't using my 508/525 slide. THere are definitely times that I've used one or the other that I thought I would prefer the 508/525 slide I had, but they are more rare than the other way around.  The one thing that I think I would do differently if I were to order a new one is order one that didn't have gold brass tubes. I think either a full nickel or yellow brass slide would have been a better fit for the commercial stuff I did with it.

We (or most of us) don't normally use more air in high register.

We may run faster out of air up there, but that doesn't necessarily mean that we use more of it.

I hope that makes sense... :/

I know what you are stating, but I don't think you understand his concept. If I do, then it's bumping the note up with a small shot of air - kinda like giving a car a little momentary surge of gas to make the transmission change gears.

I have an XT105 gold plated rim I'll trade for the 13 and 15. This rim is the closest I could find to the Griego Alessi 1 series. The xt106 felt bigger. Email me at danielsen.kristoffer@gmail.com if you're interested.

Can you shoot me a picture of the rim? I'm piqued.

I have the XT106 Lexan but it does feel bigger than my Griego. The gold 105 is probably what I should have gotten
