Bach LT42T
Bach 42AG
Conn 18H Director
Getzen 3062AF
King 2102SS
King 2103PLG
Yamaha YSL-697Z Black Phoenix

Most of these are not in my dinky little apartment, they are at my parents (the storage warehouse).  I only have the 42AG and little Conn 18H (bar gig) horn.

Not too many (not enough in fact - I need to borrow instruments all the time :(...)


My main instrument is an Egger tenor sackbut after Sebastian Hainlein of Nuremberg (1632).

I have an early 90s Bach LT42 with aftermarket Hagmann and a bronze slide crook.

I also have a gorgeous silver plated with gold trim Conn small bore from ca. 1913, which I really don't get to play often enough.

Newest member of the family is a Wessex Bb ophicleide after Gautrot.

Another instrument will be added in about 3 weeks - I will be building (with the help and guidance of a master instrument maker) my own slide trumpet, based on a 1442 trumpet by Marcian Guitbert of Limoges! Can't wait!

I no longer own any of the trombones I had when I last posted in this thread. Back then I had 3 trombones and 4 others. Now I have:

1963 Conn 72H with Yamaha 813 independent valve section
196x Conn 72H stock (bell section only)
Early '70s yellow King 3B (loopy engraving)
Selmer Largo (straight)

2008 Kanstul 975-2 compensating euphonium
1984 King 1130 flugabone
1969 Conn 16E mellophonium
1938 Conn 6D double horn
1968 Conn 8B trumpet
Selman 17001 C trumpet
Carol Brass CTR-2000H-YSS trumpet
Pre-WWI Couesnon flugelhorn
Bach CR310 cornet
Getzen 383 frumpet

6 coach horns

Yamaha SY77 FM synthesizer
Yamaha DX7 FM synthesizer
Yamaha Reface DX FM synthesizer
Dave Smith Mopho SE analog monosynth
Novation KS4 virtual analog polysynth
Novation X-Station 49 virtual analog polysynth
Korg Kross 61 synth workstation
Korg Monotron analog monosynth
Casio Casiotone MT-100 home synth

Squier Affinity P-Bass (needs work)
2 broken violins
Hulusi
Various hand percussion

I'm currently without an alto trombone or a tenor with a valve - looking to rectify that in the next few months, as well as upgrading my double horn.

I've had TAS (trombone acquiring syndrome) for quite awhile. I've been trying to pair down the herd but its tough. To many great horns out there!

I'm probably forgetting a few. I've already thinned the herd a bit and should probably thin it more. But all these horns play great which makes it tough!

Bones:
Bach 42T
50's Martin Committee
blue pbone

Other:
Bach TR300 trumpet
Pan American cornet
beater Conn bell front baritone (literally looks like it got ran over by a truck, but for $25 it makes a good practice horn)
old 2v (piston + rotary) g bugle
Vito clarinet
Squier jazz bass
cheap Casio keyboard

Wall hangers:
vintage Conn director trombone (needs major work and is practically unplayable, so it lives on my wall)
First Act trumpet (found in my middle school's band room closet demolished, wasn't work fixing for the school so BD gave it to me to put on my wall)

Horns I'm borrowing:
Yamaha 354 (school owned)
G baritone bugle (local drum corps)
G contra (^)
 

Used to have a Conn 50h that I used before I got my Bach, but ended up selling it to my cousin to upgrade from his jupiter student horn for high school band. I'd probably own a lot more horns with too many to count if I had the money to afford them. I'm looking to at least get a King 2/3b, new large bore tenor, bass trombone, nicer trumpet, euphonium, and tuba one day. I hope I'm not asking too much  :D

well heck, if we are including non-trombones, here's my list, in descending order of my ability to play them:
Bones:
Jin Bao 7B clone very modified as described here http://tromboneforum.org/index.php/topic,103379.0.html
King 8B/Bach 50 frankenbassone
bach 42G straight
bach 36 straight
various student bones in varying conditions

Other brass:
Holton Eb Monster 3v tuba 1917
Carl Fisher 4v baritone ~120yo
No-name cornet ~100yo
couple of student trumpets in varying conditions

I went through a didgeridoo "phase" 25 years or so ago:
Australian Eucalyptus Didgeridoo in Db
Big Heavy homemade aluminum Didg in B
couple of pvc didges in various keys

I am currently in the middle of a string "phase":
violin ~100yo for fiddling
viola ~80yo also for fiddling- tuned octave below normal violin
Cello of unknown age really fun to play
5/8 size Czech made upright Bass tuned in 5ths an octave below the cello
MK F0 style mandolin
home made cigar box mandolin
appalachian dulcimer
Gibson C-1 (classical) guitar
Japanese "lawsuit" hollow body electric guitar
peavy electric guitar
Fender acoustic guitar
banjo
2 accordions
yamaha electric piano

probably some others I've forgotten about plus a crate full of musical toys....

Well, if he'd make one, THAT would be interesting (apart from setting a new Guinness record).  ;-)

How many horns do I own?  Well, there is 8 of them.  However there a lack of agreement on the sufficiency.

My Wife:  "That's way too many!"

Me: "I need an alto and a contrabass, and ..."

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?

hah. after moving to NYC where space is less than adequate, it became time to cash in several items.
traded in: '65 Olds Super, Vintage King 2B, King 2B Jiggs

Daily Driver is now a Rath R1. (nickel tuning, yellow brushed bell, yellow neck, nickel slide, focused leadpipe)

Symphonic is a Conn 88H from the 70s.  Let's be honest, it's just an "in case of" horn at this point.  Cleaned monthly.  Played monthly at home just to make sure its not rotting away.

I'm right there with you, except I only have 3 and want a contra.

I caught wind that Wessex will have a new totally redesigned contra out around May...

Still the same 7! I've been good. Keeping them all in good working order is something that I always worry about, and less horns means less to worry about.

Currently thinking about whether to have an olsen valve stuck on my Bach 42T or not. I like it the way it is, I just know that eventually the original thayer is going to go.

Maybe. :D I do like that large bore Kruspe sound and feel. Looking at all kinds of different things though.

You guys are making me feel inadequate. I only have 5 trombones:

Bach 36BO (main axe)
King 3B
King 3B/F
Conn 6H (currently off for a slide re-build)
Rath R 4 bell with R3 slide.

Willson 2704 Euph that I haven't played in a year and a half.

Crappy $40 craigslist trumpet
Old Special trumpet

I am just experimenting with the trumpet thing. It may be temporary if I can't figure out the chops.

If you really like that big, "Hollywood" horn sound and feel, look around for a King Eroica to try out. It's a George McCracken design; pretty much "8D only more so".

If you're on a tight budget, take a look at the Briz horns from China. Last I heard, they were building Paxman's student and intermediate lines.

I've been looking into those Eroicas actually. They seem like real sleepers. I've heard lots of great things about the Briz horns - I'd almost certainly go that way if I was going new.

2 Bach 50s. One with a corporation silver plated bell, corporation slide with a bi-thread leadpipe receiver, and Thayers. The other is a 50B3 with a removable bell. I also have a Conn 6H with a Coprion 18H bell, and a Jupiter marching euphonium for some reason.
