1  Classified Advertisements / Classified Advertisements / FS Elliott M9 Shank on: Jul 29, 2014, 11:49AM
For Sale Doug Elliot .M9 shank in good condition.  $25 plus shipping
2  Classified Advertisements / Classified Advertisements / FS Kanstul OL Bass Leadpipe on: Jul 29, 2014, 11:48AM
For sale as in the title. The Open Legit pipe is quite open but has enough compression that you can get a nice square front of the note, it also has a nice rich sound with enough upper overtones that you don't sound like a slide tuba. You can have your choice of no threads press fit ring, or Shires/Kanstul thread included.  The threads or ring will not be soldered to the pipe, your tech should be able to do this inexpensively. I currently have Edwards threads on it and will be keeping them.
$35 plus shipping in a pvc pipe for maximum protection
3  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Re: shallow cup & long backbore versus deep cup & short backbore - does it work? on: Jun 23, 2014, 10:31AM
Something  that has been overlooked here is the relationship of length of mouthpiece to slide positions.  Differing lengths of mouthpieces will make the horn closer or farther from where our muscle memory tells us a position is located. If you change the length an inch your slide will be correspondently different also.  I know if I miss a position by an inch it is usually out of tune.

Frank Gulino's Worlds Apart is a really good piece for bass trombone.  Not too hard and very listenable for the audience.  Tetra Ergon by White is a really challenging piece that uses some serial techniques but is not serial in nature.  The various Ewazen pieces are challenging and fun for the performer and audience.  It is a good time to be a bass trombonist looking for solo literature.

Did you put the rotor back in the casing from which it came?  That can cause binding.

I traveled all over China with the bass version and it generally fit. The only issue was in the Boeing 777 which was too short for it to fit.

Tom Lundberg is also a fantastic teacher/performer in the Knoxville area. He has taught many people who have gone forward with great success. I believe he was Jeremy Wilson's teacher when he was in high school.

I would do everything you can to carry it on.  I've carried my bass in a ProTec case on every plane I've traveled on and it fit in the overheads on all but the 777.  The horn guys website has great info on how to do this and how to pack your horn to travel.

I had the good fortune to work for Edwards at the Alessi Seminar this summer.  In hearing all the wonderful young musicians play both the Thayer valve horns and an Alessi horn these are the things I noticed.  The Alessi has a really quick response, and a richer, thicker sound than a most of the Thayer setups that were tried.  It has a very colorful sound that is easy to manipulate for various settings and he pillars really do change the response and sound of the horn. 
The fit and finish are top notch as it should be for a horn of this price.  Mr. Alessi and Mr. Griego have given the trombone family another great choice of instrument.
11  Creation and Performance / Performance / Re: Mozart Requiem - bass trombone question on: Sep 27, 2013, 11:03AM
I've gotten to play this twice and again this November and every time the principal plays alto, the second his normal .547 and I play tighter lead pipe and shallower cup mouthpiece.  We strive for a light and transparent sound that doesn't overpower the rest of the ensemble.  I'm very fortunate that both the other players are sensitive and fabulous musicians with an understanding of what Mozart should sound like.

I had the good fortune of performing with him a few years ago.  Quite a creative performer and warm person.

Loud Mouthpieces have the LM-31, it is just a little smaller than the Karif, with a deep bowl and 8mm throat.

If you can find an O ring to place on the screw so that when tightened, it is between the head of the screw and the tabs, has a similar effect at the edge bracing.  I did this for a number of years before having edge bracing installed on my horn..

I imagine that the chamfering on the end of the shank is a result of the shorting of the shank with out a redesign of the backbore.
