Re: Getzen 351

Bought a gently used 451 from dj for friend's kid a few years back. I had never heard of it before that purchase but took dj's word for it. VERY well built, and played great. Felt nice to start a kid on something solid yet relatively affordable. Bought a gently used 351 for another friend's kid off ...

Re: Notation programs

I've used Finale forever and make well-formatted parts with it, and it has gotten progressively better and better, but man, I just had a show due and the MIDI went sideways ... the only way i could get playback going this time was export to MusicXML, import, and fix everything that got bashed in the...

Re: Clip on mic

Rock band I used to play with had five horns, all on Audio Technica wireless - they are great. Mostly ATW-2110 units if I remember correctly. Bought my setup with some gig money, made stage cleaner, horns mobile, and no issues then or since: Audio-Technica ATM350cW Cardioid Condenser Clip-on Instrum...

Re: Mics advice

I picked up a pair of EV RE320 used on Reverb for home recording, they are derived from RE20 with some other characteristics. https://www.prosoundnetwork.com/archives/electro-voice-re320-premium-dynamic-microphone It's the most natural sounding mic for bone I've come across - in limited experience. ...

Re: Buzz mute?

I was told that the H&B Buzz-Wow was discontinued when I was looking a few years back. Tough to find, never did. Forum member dj kennedy was making some assorted buzz mutes around the same time, maybe still! Possibly with someone else? Anyways, I have some of those creations and they are quite the b...

Re: New Case for a Plane Ride

On Southwest I've had no problems with the SKB trombone case. I think they are tanks for the price. Mine has stupid, exposed latches though - every SKB case I own for pro audio stuff has great latches that would have made it perfect. So! I get it through security, then wrap a cloth belt on it to kee...

Re: Olds Counterweight

OK, I wrapped a piece of wire around the Recording post(s) on which the counterweight fits, straightened it out, and measured, giving the post an approximate outer diameter of 1 5/8". If someone can do this with a Special, we'll have our answer. Slightly smaller would be ok, to a point - the counter...

Re: Olds Counterweight

I've got the counterweight, and the Recording it lives on, and a Super that it fits too, but no Special with which to compare.

Are braces same?

Re: King 3b hard to play?

My old 3b Silversonic has frustrating partials and notes up top, as some others have described. I'll revisit it someday. I think it's a good candidate to have the leadpipe pulled and a threaded adapter installed. Then if I don't have a pipe that "fixes" it (for me) ... well, I did what I could. Mayb...

Re: How/when to pick a new mouthpiece

Definitely try new mouthpieces when you get a new horn. "The One" on my Olds Recording is vastly different than "The One" on my Yamaha 891z. When trying a new (to me) horn, I'll quickly run through a whole line of mouthpieces and divide into yes, maybe, and no, and ... go from there. (I have a theor...
