Re: FS: Early 1970's King 3B-F

Let me say this first: your asking price is quite acceptable based on these photos. I'd buy it instantly if I were living in the US. BUT: (I did some reading on importing and stuff) In order to import this instrument to the Netherlands, I'd have to pay 4,1% import duties over the cost of the instrum...

Re: FS: Early 1970's King 3B-F

I may be interested if you have some nice photos.
What would shipping be to the Netherlands?
Any idea on import taxes?

Re: What’s your favorite trombone case?

I haven't tried that many, but I ended up buying the 'Thomann Trekking Case', backpack version. For those unfamilliar with it: Thomann is a large german music store with their own line of pretty much everything. Their cases are generally incredibly cheap yet very durable. I bought one of their trump...

Re: Courtois 11PM and 12CS comparable mouthpieces

You are correct. I'm Dutch, as my username suggests :) I've returned the trombone. Good to know they still exist and are being sold. I don't know what trombone I'm gonna buy yet because that largely depends on the second-hand stuff placed online. If that is a large shank trombone, I'll look into tha...

Re: Olds 25 info?

OK guys, I returned the olds nr. 25. I still think it played quite well, though the 4B I played just played better. I also noticed that it was an unlaquered copper (I think?) bell, which tarnishes really fast. As in within a week it's black on points where I touched it. That was the final deciding f...

Re: Olds 25 info?

Thanks BGuttman, I was wondering about that!
Still not sure about which model to look for though... 3B, 4B or even 5B.
I liked the 4b sound, but am not sure if I can playing it like that during a whole reheasal. Then the 3B would be more suitable, right?

Ted:
Marktplaats, obviously :)
I check the 'used' section of online retail stores as well sometimes (van der Glas, van Gorp, Adams), but the prices are way higher than on Marktplaats.

Are there any others I should be aware of?

Re: Olds 25 info?

Thanks BGuttman. Removing the 50H and adding the Benge. JohnL: I'm not sure yet if I'm keeping it. Depends on whichever trombone I end up with, how much it costs, and how much I can get for the Courtois. I wouldn't mind keeping it. BUT: I play the trombone currently in 1 band (trumpet in the others)...

Re: Olds 25 info?

Thanks BGuttman, I'll skip the King 607 and 608, as those seem to be student horns (if I'm not mistaken), and the Omega as well. If I'm buying anyway, I'm buying the best i can get for the money. So far on my list to look out for: King 2103 / 3b King 2104 / 4B Sonorous (anyone know the difference be...

Re: Creating an Orchestra Manager / Ideas?

Careful, long post incomming! In the Netherlands, we have a free planning app/website that actually can do quite a lot of what you want. It's called 'datumprikker'. Apparently it also has an english version, but I'm sure there are english programs for this as well. The 'organizer' has/can make a dat...

Re: Olds 25 info?

OK, thanks JohnL. What would be horns to be looking out for? Assuming I'd want a high quality horn that will last me a lifetime without the immediate urge to upgrade even before I buy it :P I also tried a King 4B Sonorous which I really liked, but was priced at about double the amount. I saw one adv...

Courtois 11PM and 12CS comparable mouthpieces

Hello guys, I've played a second hand Courtois 150 (small shank) with a Courtois 12CS mouthpiece as my first real trombone for about one and a half years now. I recently got a trombone with a large shank, and got a courtois 11 PM mouthpiece with it. Of all mouthpieces I tried, this one is most comfo...

Re: Olds 25 info?

Ah yes. Thank you JohnL. That's a nice website :) Too bad they don't have the picture to visually confirm it though. The use of 'nr25' and 'Elkhart' do suggest that this is the one I have. Now, is there any way to check the age of the instrument by using the serial number? So would you guys consider...

Olds 25 info?

Hello guys, I was wondering if anyone has some info on a trombone I recently bought. I can find virtually nothing about it myself, but have to admit that I am still getting into trombones. I just started little over a year ago :) , but did play the trumpet for about 20 years. So, the question is reg...
