Since Tom Matta is in Chicago, maybe he can give us a report.

I always looked forward to the TubaChristmas, at noon on Thursdays.
And of course, eating at Berghoff's :)

Interesting. Christan absolutely knows what he's doing, and I'm sure this is a fine instrument. Reading the specs and about the design, the slide sounds a lot like a Bach 42, but the bell has an unsoldered rim - nothing like a Bach - and the single radius tuning slide is also very different from any Bach. He doesn't say whether the bell is one-piece (like Bach) or two-piece (like every other Getzen and Edwards trombone I know of).

Does anybody know the price point?

Sorry - I very rarely "run the gauntlet" of the displays. Too many "enthusiasts" trying out the trombones and trumpets at ear-breaking levels for me.

Nor did I attend any performances - just a little to busy around here...

I was working at the Midwest clinic... I didn't get much of a chance to explore, but I tried out a prototype Edwards bass trombone. I noticed it has a place for sound pillars, though I did not try them.

It almost sounds like a budget-Alessi model. Just enough difference to justify the price points. (aka Lexus vs Toyota)

I agree. That might not be such a bad thing, though.

I'd like to see a full picture. And a price.

As a Toyota owner of almost two decades, I concur. :D

On the topic of Edwards....
Any news on that new axial flow valve they were developing a few months ago? My questions to them go unanswered and facebook comments on the Edwards page get deleted every time. Guess they don't want my business :p

The new Thayer was in development a few years ago, but Christan put it on the back burner to focus on finishing up the Alessi model and start development of the two new basses. A good rule of thumb when contacting Christan... if you don't get a response from him a day or two after using our web form, give him a call. He digs talking shop on the phone a lot more than exchanging emails.

As for the Facebook page, I never delete individual comments. But I did delete the photos of the Thayers in order to avoid confusing our readers. So if you commented on one of those photos, then unfortunately your message was lost. Sorry about that!

True, I figured it would be difficult to contact such a busy man. However, I did not comment on the photos, but on the facebook page within the last week or so. No problem though, I'll definitely try the phone call. I was more curious than anything, and might just make a trip out to Wisconsin in the next couple months anyway. Thanks for your reply!

Your comments are still on our wall. You just need to make sure that you click the "everyone" tab in order to see them. We obviously didn't see them either. Facebook UI fail.

B&S had a prototype bass trombone brought over from Germany for Midwest. It will be their next addition to the Carl Lenthe-designed line. I enjoyed playing around on it but I'm not a bass trombonist by any means. They did say Charlie Vernon spent an hour or so playing it the previous night and provided them with some great feedback. I'd love to see a production model by next year.

Other than that I didn't see much, wish I had spotted the new Getzen, would have loved to try that.
