Re: What we're doing

This caught my eye:

“Just like music, relationships take practice and maintenance.”

Indeed.

Trombone finished in early May. A couple of guitar things this month, and then dark until Sept.

It might be jet lag, lousy weather, or sub-clinical depression, but I’m not feelin’ it these days.

Re: WTB: Bach 36 slide only!

I have not had to pay duty shipping US-built horns back into the US (from Canada). There is paperwork that kicks in at the $800 level. There is additional paperwork that is required at the ~$2700 level (a bond for potential duties/taxes).

The shipping cost appears reasonable to me.

Difference between Bach 5, 5G and 5GS?

For example, playing characteristics and sound.

I’m thinking about a Courtois AC-440B. Any thoughts?

I’m thinking about buying the Courtois Bright/88H model .547 horn. I tried one for half a hour in a store and quite liked it.

Anyone else have any experience with or information about this horn?

It seems TTF is gone for good. I do miss the Politics, but I might be the only one.

Re: Thoughts on the Yamaha YSL682B

Inflexible is a good description. Bousfield, ordinarily an 88H man, designed it to be heard in the Barbican. Made loud to be played loud?

Re: Thoughts on the Yamaha YSL682B

I had one for about 5 years before finding an Elkhart 88H.

At the time, it was the first .547 horn I’d spent any time on. I wonder what I’d think of it now.

Re: Jazz "play along"

A slow-downer app will let you transcribe/play along with actual recordings. I have one called Transcribe which works well. Lots of these around.

I’m interested in the Faxx 5G if it is still available. I don’t seem to be able to PM you.
