Got that bell for a while, and like it, but which slide do you, owners, use with and why?

- original
- SL 2525
- SL 2547
- SL 4747
- SL 4762
- SL 6262

???

I tried the original, the SL 2525, the SL 4762, and soon, the SL 2547...

Original with aftermarket leadpipe (Brass Ark MV36 in drawn nickel) works well for me. Briefly played it with SL6262, too, which was also fine for certain things.

What is the size of the F section tubing and/or rotor bore?

If you used a slide much bigger than that wouldn't it make the F section blow a little more stuffy compared to open?

I've only payed one with the stock 25/47 slide but I'd be tempted to try a 47/47 slide on it.

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?

52H bell is a King 4BF bell. Slide in .547 gives you a King 4BF.

That would be a good thing.

Absolutely, Bill. Vintage vibe with a NEW slide to not be worn out.

52H bell is a King 4BF bell. Slide in .547 gives you a King 4BF.

If you look closely, you will see that a king 4BF bell has a different wrap than a Conn 52H bell.

When I turn the 0.547 " slide of my 8HT on the 52H bell, it will be a 52HL, he plays more like a Conn 88H, not like a King 4BF.
But I play the original dual slide (0,525"/0,547").
I have not tried the SL slides yet.
Just my opinion.

If the 52H has an unsoldered rim it will likely play more like the 88H than the 4BF.

I already had a King 4B, years ago, and a Conn 8HT.

The 52H bell is heavier than both, but for me, has the shape of the 4B...

Just got a SL2547 slide today...

So, with original slide, I did not like it.
W/ SL2525 slide, not such a good match either.
W/ SL2547 slide : great sound and vibes ! (use it with small shank "T" leadpipe)
W/ Blessing regular 547" slide : great as well ! More so than a regular 88H slide.
W/ SL4762 : too large, fuzzy sound in the high range, great low range.

Dazzit, for me at least...

I discovered that my embouchure needs some compression not too far from my lips...

The original slide should have been close to an SL2547.  With a fixed leadpipe though, and possibly not to the same build quality.

Definitely not...  Tried both...

And I like to have the opportunity to plug a large shank mp in a .525 slide too...
