Can you enlighten my, how that key is working? It doesn't look like a common trombone water key, and that's spyrale spring...what's up with that?

It's a curved rod within a curved tube. Look closely at where the spring ends and you will see the curved inner rod. Press the knurled knob at the spring end (barely visible in pic) and it lifts the cork up and away from the nipple allowing the water to drain.

Sorry Troy... If it doesn't work out between us I'll call you first.

Thanks Slip, it's a blower!

This is the first with king style crook i've played... i dig it!

Unwrapping it was a pain - he shipped it well... and I was trying to not drop anything or screw anything up.

Serial number 30XX, single radius crook, burbank on grip, one line of info on bell EARL WILLIAMS - from what little I know about these horns, pretty sure it's a Bob - I'm a king guy and that's what what I want.

First impression: it's a beast, takes what I give it. I'm playing it in a rehearsal tonight and on a big band gig this weekend. Update to follow.

Serial number 30xx is definitely a Bob.  Enjoy it!

Glad you like it, good sir.  I have a few other Williams around, too.  Great horns, obviously.  Sorry about the pain up unwrapping it...I wanted to keep shipping low and protection high!
