Speaking from a position of ignorance, could the issue be the size of the package rather than the weight? Some of the delivery things that I was looking at last week (admittedly in the UK and via air travel) talked about "volumetric weight" - a bigger box can cost more as they cannot fit as many things in to the vehicle.

Bingo!

Most commercial carriers' (including USPS) charge the greater of the actual weight or the dimensional weight (L x W x H / divisor). FedEx's divisor is 139, so a 40x15x16 package weighs in at 69 Lbs; for UPS the divisor is 166, so it's "only" 58 Lbs.

If you want his source, he's more credible than random forum members. It's Jay Friedman.

I don't buy into that logic. Having a brilliant and long career as a world-class performer has no correlation with being a reliable source on historical information. A "random forum member" could hold a tremendous amount of knowledge (as a matter of fact, several of the top scholars on trombone history are members of this forum). Name recognition doesn't have anything to do with it.

I do believe that Jay Friedman is mostly right in your quote as far as what instruments were used, but I wouldn't state it as the truth, because I can't prove it, and neither can you or anyone else, at least for now.

I'm in that position now. I was in the middle of a come back after 3 years of not having played. I'm on vacation now, right in the middle of 2 weeks away from the horn. Then I have 2 weeks to get together for a Big Band concert. I know, that I'll have to find my sound again first. And be comfortable with it. That means middle register and extend that downward, remembering to relax and sue broad slow air, not forced. Since the BB gig only goes up to an f, I'll not worry about anything about an e-flat for the first 3 days. I'll concentrate on just getting the sound I know I had before the vacation. And I will realize, that the endurance I lost will come back, but not by brute force. I'll not worry about slide technique. I knew the charts before I left on vacation, so that'llremain.

My go to exercises are variations of Chichowicz flow exercises of my own design. Also Alan Raph for getting sound and articulation in double-paddle and pedal registers. Then I do a little playing from the Bachmann/Slokar book. Take a 10 minute break and do some etudes from Bordogni.

All I can think of, with the smoke effect around it, is that they must be following a traditional curing process. That horn will play wonderfully in another 12-24 hours.
