I don't name my trombone because to me, giving her a name would imply that she has a personality other than the one that I am aiming to portray through her at any given particular point in time.

I often get into arguments with my trombone David- I'm not gay, just he seemed like a guy to me. (If you saw him, you'd think so too, covered in dents and scratches with an F-trigger. I didn't make him that way, got him from my aunt.) I also don't think I'm making out- just a disagreeing opinion. I usually think of the "mouth" organ as the bell, since, you know. So more of the "extension of myself" thing.

As I stated earlier, I've decided that the 6H I bought from DJ should be named:

Take II

since this is my second horn that I have owned in my life and my second try at playing trombone (with a 30 + year gap between the first and second times)

now that I have found some EBAY steals:

The Olds Special '59 I haven't named because its being donated to a local school music program after being worked on by the local repair shop, cleaning and dent repair was all that was needed.

the 1890 - 1910ish Fredrick Busch trombone is called "Respect" as in "respect your elders"

the 1910ish H N White "King Solo Model 2" is called "Behave" as in "Junior, behave"

for obvious reasons.

so current role call:

"Respect", "Behave" and "Take II"

Conn 18H - The old girl

Bach 42B - Hi Ho Silver (DJ named it that when I was buying it, and the name stuck)

BBb tuba - Big Bertha

now to think of something for the Benge 165f?? Don't know

Cars: Ford falcon (xr8)- The Boss

Hyundai Excel - Pocket Rocket :D

my parents always named our cars, usually using the numberplate letters , so it's not much of a stretch to naming my instruments - they all have their own personalities. :)

Holton TR-181 = Count Bassy ( terrible pun for Count Basie, but the fist Jazz chart I played with it was one of his... )

Custom 42 = Seras ( inside joke with a friend of mine, the name's from Hellsing )

King 2B Silver Sonic = Sheva ( kind of an inside joke, the name's from RE5 )

Frankenbone = selfexplanitory really...

Bach 301 = Giuseppe

Jupiter JSL-432 = Luciano

My Bach 42BO has been Jean Petit for a while.
Bach in Welsh = Little = Petit and there's a song about Jean Petit.

But I'm not convinced. After all, he's not that small.

Perhaps PDQ, after one of the most versatile of the Bach family ?
Perhaps Brooks ?

I've been having second thoughts about christening my horn "Kickass." After all, that was the name I gave my high school horn, and I think I should do my 3b justice with an original name. My brother suggested "Bamf", but while it is completely awesome, I think explaining the name to people would be awkward.

Maybe Big McLargeHuge or Master Exploder or... I can't think of anything that would work.

This is way too difficult - why isn't there a book of instrument names out there?? They have 'em for babies, why not trombones?

Yamaha YSL-354 is Spike
Elkhart Conn 88H is Don Ciccio
Both are names my dad frequently calls me...which means the next trombone I get will be Lee or Mr. Pink.

Thought I'd update my trombone names, as they have evolved since the above post.

Conn 18H is still the old girl

Bach 42B is now Gomez (Addams)

Benge 165F is Morticia

Miraphone 186 BBb tuba is Lurch

Gotta love the Addams Family.  :D Evil :D

I think names give an instrument personality, and since I feel like I work WITH them (as a partner) it's important to know them

I had a close look at my King yesterday. For ease of carrying, I've been squeezing it into a case which is a lot smaller than its proper one. I notice that the top of the slide has been denting the bell. Quite badly, in fact. So its name is probably Ouch.... :shuffle:
