I am not sure that a new leadpipe would really make it a Big Band horn. That's a modern Bass trombone, designed for working in an orchestral setting. Even if you put in a new leadpipe, it's still a heavy horn.

The leadpipe in the horn is most likely one designed for the horn to work best in its intended purpose: an orchestral horn.
