Morning all,

this is probably a stupid question but has anyone had any experience of or knowledge of opening up the rotor ports on a Bach 50 bass trombone? Is it doable? is it a dumb idea? All info gratefully received!

Cheers
Chris.

No idea about the accuracy of the content, but there's a discussion with Bach rotors mentioned at http://www.trombonechat.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=809.

Not a dumb question. Doable? Absolutely. Worth it? Depends on what your expectations are. Find a tech who is experienced with this type of alteration-the wrong person will butcher the job.

Agreed! I had it done on my Bach 50 at Osmun Brass in Massachusetts back in the mid 90's. I believe a tech there named Steve Shires may have done the work...
Sadly, adding an Edwards slide made more of a difference to the "playablilty" of that horn!

I believe Kanstul makes CR valves for bass,  best to call them & ask.
