I have some great horns now, but there are a few I would like to add to my collection:

BASS TROMBONES
a Conn Fuchs bass trombone
a Rath bass bone with 1 piece bell and tuning in the slide
A Holton TR162 with all the original pieces

TENOR TROMBONES
An Urbie Green Martin
A Rath .500 bore with nickel-silver bell
Maybe a Bach 10 or 12 pre Selmer
A Conn 6H from the 50's or early 60's
A  Conn 8H from anytime in the Elkhart days
A Besson Soverign .500 bore from the late 70's to early 80's

EUPHONIUM AND TUBA
A Besson Imperial 4 valve compensating Euphonium
A Besson Imperial 4 valve compensating Tuba

Oh well - I might score 1 or 2 of these some day, we'll see.

If you want to see what I play now, take a look at my web site.

Hi octavposaun:

R denotes the sterling plus bell, as I think some have already pointed out.  I used to work in a large shop so I had to learn that at one point.  I also owned an LT36R for a while back in high school, and it was a great horn, but too large for my jazz style once I developed and heard that sound in my head that I was looking for.  I've also played on a 16R, though I've never owned one.  I don't think the sterling worked as well on the 16, though it did give it a nice dense sound, while still feeling like a smaller horn.

As far as the Olds, I was referring to the brass throat and nickel flair.  I've seen them selling fairly cheap, but never when I have spare cash/when I can trust the slide without testing it.

a Rath R4 double bell trombone with two Hagmann valves (one for the F and one for the second bell) in which I could exchange the double bell with a D slide and have a double valve tenor.

Are you reading this Mick?

Right now I'm enamored with that factory custom Conn 8H over at the Brass Ark that used to be Ralph Sauer's. Just seems like something that must play incredibly, though with an 8 inch bell and .525 bore slide, it's definitely not your average 8H.

I second that enthusiastically!

I'd break a couple of "piggy banks"for a reallly good 8H, but I just had a "wide slide" made for my Bach36G ( my horn since '82) by Eric Edwards that gives me the feel a a bigger horn with no consequences, i.e. no more 'effort" to play, no ""new" horn break-in period, etc.
