Those are Vegas, not Novas.

Just in case it's not clear from the pic, they actually loaded the Vegas into the shipping containers vertically.

The Vega DID have some serious issues, including the notorious unsleeved aluminum cylinder block and a propensity for rust.
Yes, the Vega was definitely a dud.

Digging up an 11-year-old topic, are we?

For some it's a recurring problem, unfortunately.

Sam, My use of the word theory is a result of your posts above, and the confirmation that I was in the right area. The 17th partial is not a phrase that Iíve ever read about let alone used until now.

I found that the 10 or so minutes that I spent practicing these tones today unsettled my embouchure a little, and Iím going to be stopping around the high G in 3rd, which will help insure the tones below.

As a sideline, Iíve found that a good way to revive a discombobulated lip is to clean your teeth with cold water, but no tooth paste. An electric brush is better..

If your Yamaha is a YSL-354, it's fine for all those things you mentioned.  No need to buy another horn at all.
Come on Bill, what has 'need' got to do with it?  Playing with my new Stork Custom T3 mp.  Ebay for $10 Cdn!

A quality made ( brands mentioned ) double rotor bass that's affordable. I started on a Holton TR-181 on high school and I don't think that if I had been playing most any other bass trombone that my progress would have been different. As mentioned a great used bass trombone can be had for between 1-2K. As for mouthpieces a good ol' 1-1/2G is a great starting point without knowing anything about the player. And don't forget about lessons to soak up some good information.

A single rotor would be fine in the average HS band, but as your son progresses and so does the literature he plays it will get harder to play without the facility of two rotors. This has been discussed more than once on The Forum. Buuuut no reason to rule it out if the price is right and the window of time is small to get an instrument.
