Re: New Conn 88H’s made in Elkhart

New construction is super inconsistent. Some of the parts are pretty good, but it seems like qc is seriously lacking. If you find a good one and get it blueprinted it could be a great horn.
And to the last picture, blame the shop.
That’s just unacceptable, your student should try to take it back.

Re: Jazz trombone advice?

Below is a link to an article from Sam Burtis from a number of years ago. Today there would be more Shires and Raths on the list, but the sentiment would be the same. A tighter, brighter, more powerful sound helps lead a section, and that usually comes from usually a straight .500ish bore horn. For ...

Re: Mics advice

I've used all of these and would prefer the Beta98 to all except the RE20.
The MD441 isn't bad, but not my favorite.
For any pop / rock recording stuff I've had best results with an RE20 mixed with a Beta 57 or 58 next to each other.

Re: Screw rim mouthpiece modification

I've had cups threaded, and you definitely want someone who knows what they're doing. Certain things do change, as some things (at least for me) are directly related to the cup or rim specifically. But hopefully the things that change are the things you want to change. Basic sound and most of the re...

Re: Modern Bach 6.5 vs Faxx 6.5 Build Differences?

I've found that many different mouthpiece manufacturers vary quite a bit from one piece to the next. I've had some very good success going to a larger shop, and spending time playing every copy of a particular size that they have. Once I spent half an hour going through 20 different 5Gs. It might no...

Re: Screwbell Pricing

$400 to $500 is accurate. I've had John Sandhagen do 2 for me, one ring from Shires and one from Instrument Innovations. The Shires is lighter, and the screw is tighter / a little tougher to get lined up. The Instrument Innovations is a lot closer to the old Holton screw feel, but it is a bit heavie...

Re: TTF Archives are LIVE!

Thanks Matt, I know I jumped into the deep end searching for some old posts from Sam and Roland Barber. There are at least a few things missing.
Kudos on the progress, though.

It seems like the archive posts only go back so far, or is it just what I'm seeing for some reason?
