I feel like a sissy compared to some of you guys. I have had as many as 4 bones, but am currently at 3.

King 2103 (3b) that I got about a year ago. I love this horn for playing lead in our local big band. I got a Warburton 7m mouthpiece for it and it really sings.

And I have an Edwards with all the pieces to build 2 complete horns. I have a .547 slide, a .525 slide, an 8" bell, an 81/2" bell, a valve section, straight neck pipe, and 2 tuning slides. I usually play it as a .525 horn with the 8" bell and valve.

And I have a Willson ,2704 non-compensating euphonium.

One of these days I want to get a small tuba and a small bore horn with a valve. And maybe a 2b. But money is a limiting factor. If I had tons if it, I would probably own 10 trombones, 2 or 3 euphs, a tuba, a bass trumpet, and 5 mountain bikes.

Weril Gagliardi II Alto
Weltklang Alto
Rath R1
Conn 74H
Conn 88HTO
Holton TR181

Other instruments
Besson Sovereign Euphonium
Cerveny Eb Tuba

All trombones get played regularly except the Weltklang and the 74H.  The Weltklang slide is simply aweful and I have access to a friends 78H which I use instead of the 74H. The Euphonium and Tuba only come out on rare occasions, tuba mainly in the theatre bands and the Euph for the odd Planets or Bydlo

Ok, I'll play....
Olds Balanced action (1928)
Olds Special (1954)
Olds Ambassador (1954)
(I dont use these much but they are all nice for what they are)
1960 Conn Constellation with lots of repairs and a med heavy slide (I use this a lot, and it looks it ;-) )
Pan American frankenbone with a 500 bore slide (spare for the 48H)
Early 80's TR258 made to be convertable with a straight neckpipe, spare TR158 bell, and a 525 slide (actually two separate horns.)
A Bb/F/G/Eb modular  Franken-bass. Based on a Yamaha 612 bell converted to a screw bell and a very modified 72H slide I have been using since 1978....
This is my "main" bass In spite of its quirks it's a nice player. Has a single valve section - the original red brass soldered rim bell flare and a brass unsoldered rim 10.5" bell flare from a 50Bl bell. Parts exist for at least one complete horn, the time to build it does not right now...
YBL 613H bought as a spare, great slide, great valves, good deal.
Mack Brass Euphonium, cheap, but it paid for itself.
Mack Brass Tuba... the Chinese are catching up ;-)
Several large boxes of bundy trombone and trumpet parts, (Ugh) and a crushed Conn 20I baritone I scavenged for the valves... (yet another project....)

Including "coming soon"...

- Kurt Scherzer: Quartposaune (Schmidt TP3-1/2A, TBP5W)

Hi Maestro.  Do you use your Scherzer as both tenor and bass, with the respective mouthpieces?  Does it work well in both roles?  (I have a Piering Bb/F from maybe around 1900.  After a couple of recommendations, I recently got a Schmidt TP 3¾, which I like, and I’m also trying to add a TBP5W, which would give me a similar setup.)

Besson wall hanger, built in the 1860s according to a letter I have from Besson.

That wall hanger might be desirable by players of period instruments if it can be restored to a decent playing condition. Not worth very much because of the large quantity of later French trombones that have the same design, but still, 1860 is earlier than what a lot of people have.

These are the ones that are at parents' house.

Even with just the three of them here, they take up a surprising amount of space in the apartment.
