I am just going to play it for a while. Oddly this has a 9" bell. SOmeone on the forum stated that Allen Ostrander had 3 special made w/9" bells for a University in Ca. Sliphorn is his handle. I assumed this had an 8.5 bell. Whatever . It plays .  What is the normal bell size for an 8? THere is no stamping identifying it as a Univ horn as the other one had on the main bell brace  flange.

FWIW , It has a shorter bell  position on it in relation to 3rd and 4th position. It reminds me of the bell length on some Holton Tr180 Bass Trombones I have owned.

Is there a registry or database of Earl Williams horns?
If so, I'd like to add my newly acquired 6(LA #816) to the list.
What a Great horn!

I believe the standard bell size for a Williams 8 or a 9 is 9".  And yes, very cool horns.  Glad you like yours.

PS - When I said Ostrander ordered these horns custom, I didn't mean the bells were a custom size.  They're stamped CSU, which is custom, and also mine has a standard spit valve with a curly one ready to install if the player wishes.

Williams 8 has an 8.5 inch bell, the model 9 has a 9" bell. Please keep in mind there was some variation in bell sizes. Ive owned a model 6 with a 7.5" bell, I have a 9 thats 9.5 and my 10 is over 9.5".

The line up would be this:
Model#   Bore   Bell size
4             .490    7.5"
6             .500    8.0"
7             .500    8.0" With "F" attachment all odd numbers were F"F" attachment horns
8             .520   8.5 "   
9            .520    9.0"
10          .565    9.5" or 10"

But as stated there were variations in bell sizes.
