Right now I have a Bach strad 42, but it was made in the 70s back when they were still good horns.

I really wanted to like the beautiful M&W horns at the ATW, but I couldn't find one that spoke to me. They were immaculate, though.

Even if you don't love the way they play, you have to admire the build quality. I had a chance to play someone's independent tis horn at ITF which was awesome. But, not everyone will love them.

I had only one M&W so far that I got new in a trade. A great horn for sure, build quality was flawless. To me it played great, but only when I was in top shape.

Totally agree. Something about the aesthetic and the way they did the laqeuer was exquisite.

I feel the same about my greenhoe, it highlights my mistakes quite well :D

I had to think about that one a little bit as I haven't had the chance to play many horns. I like me some red brass and nickle though. Maybe if I get a good engineering position my wife will let me have one. :shuffle:

If my budget was no object stock horn would be a Douglas Yeo Xeno Bass or the Edwards Pagano. Otherwise I'd have a custom horn built by Yamaha 😉

I would like someone to build the large bore cousin of a 48H with Electro-D bell, interchangeable trigger and a couple of slides with different bore.

The characteristics I’m looking for are the curiously dark and centred sound at low to medium dynamics, huge projection and stability at high dynamics without getting too woofy. Blending may be tricky though!

I said I would put the pictures, here they are; my brand new, B.A.C. custom, STERLING silver bell, .500/.508 carbon-fiber slide, based on Williams #6 (7.75 inches bell), with personalized counterweight (Saturn's ring around the B.A.C. counterweight), custom thumb ring, Paseo handgrip and very personalized engraving :D

The carbon-fiber slide counters some of the brightness of the sterling silver bell, but you could say instead that the sterling silver bell counters the carbon-fiber's deadening effect too. The combination is a beast that can still talk loud but blends in much better at lower volume compared to traditional sterling silver instruments. It will take some time to get used to, this horn has so much personality! :cool:

Maybe a Butler JJ. I have a Butler outer slide on my 2B and it’s just wonderful.

New or vintage is the first question that comes to mind.

When it comes to new two horns come to mind

Rath R3F with the Rotax, Nickel Bell, red turning slide, and yellow brass slide with nickel crook - I think that was parts combo that I played at 2018 ITF and was great. Far beyond my budget.

The second is the Latzsch SL-240 is the one that I really covet. Everything I love about an 88H with the Rotax valve already in place. For half the money of the Rath this would be my first choice.

I'd really consider a Shires Q30 with the traditional valve or the Yamaha Xeno 882 with the close wrap but yellow or gold bell is up for debate on either of these.

If you are talking vintage, I'd love an Elkhart 88H set up with a Rotax valve and removable lead pipe for additional versatility. Essentially the large bore twin to my 79H with the Rotax.

My dream trombone would play as smooth as gravy and have the meaty tone of a crisp juicy turkey fresh off the Weber layered with the sweet overtones of a freshly baked apple pie.

Happy Thanksgiving.
