Just putting this tidbit on the forum for future reference. I just took delivery of a silver-plated, 8.5" straight bell section w/tuning slide for a Canadian Brass model CB20. I had read here on the forum that the large bore Canadian Brass straight (CB20) and F-attachment (CB21) trombones were available back in the day and that they were built by Getzen. I took a little gamble and won this bell on Ebay and it turns out that it fits my Getzen 3047AFR handslide perfectly!  I wasn't able to play on it since it looks like the bell brace separated from the gooseneck during shipping. Once I get that fixed I post my impressions of that bell/slide combo.

I recently bought an entire silver plated Canadian Brass Trombone. Nice horn.
Maybe I need to play it more but, it doesn`t seem to want to blend like my 42BO does.
But I`ve never played a Getzen before and everything does take time ti "learn the horn`s quirks"
Dark sound , good upper range.

I looked up your previous posts on your CB horn. On mine, the serial number just below the bell brace (on the flare) reads 430xx. Does your bell have a number in that location too? I read that you found out the build year for yours was 1994. Just wondering how mine compares (newer/older).

Thanks
