I don't mean to revive a fairly old thread, but how's it going? It's been a fairly long time since I've seen M&W trombones mentioned around the forum/internet

Follow them on Facebook.  They seem to be doing well and are making some absolutely stunning instruments!

Haven't seen them in person, but there are some great players with the horns out there.

They're definitely on my short list for the future.

The ones that I was able to try at Midwest were in my opinion the best large bore tenors there. I am primarily a small bore player but these were incredibly easy to play including the trigger register. They did some work on my King (converting it to a screw bell) a while back and the craftsmanship was absolutely perfect. Even my tech (who is very picky about other people's work) said before I told him who did it, that it had to have been performed by someone with a lot of experience that knew exactly what they were doing. Check out the horns when you can, I'm sure you'll be impressed.

Baltimore Brass has a bass trombone for sale that hasn't hit their website yet.  Red brass bell, dependent; a 62H inspired trombone like one at the last American Trombone Workshop. Not sure of the price.  Plays like how I would imagine a sports car driving!

Wade, who is Wade on the forum, has owned more trombones than anyone I have known, has one now. From what I understand, he really likes his. I tend to agree with the idea that it matters who is building the product. I have played some the Bachs that Dan Oberloh has rebuilt and they really played much better after they were put back together.

Hmm...  I wonder if M&W is the best choice of company names.  The name M&W is similar to M&M.  M&M is an importer of tubas from China.  I don't know the M&M folks and certainly don't have anything against them, but I just don't think "quality" when I come across their name.  I think "Chinese." 

Just thinking out loud here...    :)

Now,  I grew up in a life based on

               Agriculture,

               and to me,

'M&W' is a name famous for both

           Quality  and  Utility.



Even today,

many people earn their income by

making reproductions of M&W products.




 


Amongst the many entries on this page, see          "M&W Gear, Gibson City, Illinois".



M&W Turbo Charger




M&W was best known for their after-market turbo-charger 'conversion kits',

which were designed to be used on the engines of many popular

agricultural tractors of the day (  1960's, 1970's ).


( Gee, I wish we had one on Mom's John Deere 4020 !  )



To me, the name M&W means a significant increase in Power !

And you might say that an M&W moves a lot of air !



Oh, and here's a used kit for sale.
