Re: “Taming” a nickel slide

Another option is to try different tuning slides. I am playing a Bach 42 nickel bell, Instrument Innovations rotary valve, Bach 42/36 gold brass tuning slide and an Edwards TDBAN (.47/.62) nickel slide. I get more overtones with the gold brass TS. A yellow brass TS doesn't work..

Re: Wise Grip

I am using the Wise grip on large bore .547 Shires and Bach slides as well as an Edwards dual bore (47/62) slide. It is a great fit on the Bach and Shires, but is a little loose on the Edwards. After using it for several weeks I find that a slide without the grip is very uncomfortable. I feel as if ...

Bach 42 Slide Crook Replacement

I have an all yellow 42 slide and am considering swapping out the slide crook. I was wondering who else has done this, what crook you used and how the slide played and sounded afterwards.. Thanks...

Re: Besson 8-10 info

I have an 8-10 that was given to me by a friend. It is a silver one that was a gift. It cleaned up beautifully and actually is a pretty good player. The slide has some plating loss. Is there another non-Besson 8-10 slide that would fit the bell?? THanks

Re: BrassArk/Bob Reeves mouthpieces

The "symphonic weight" is pretty heavy, think Minick style blank. It's heafty but not too heavy. The Mercury blank on the large shank and bass pieces makes it close to Bach weight. I think that is a good description. I feel as if the Mercury allows me to color the sound more than the symphonic weig...

Re: BrassArk/Bob Reeves mouthpieces

Rusty, I asked the same question a few months ago and didn't receive a response so I bought a 5G Mercury from Noah. I really like the depth and shape of the cup. It seems to help make articulation crisp and centered. It also produces a very full sound thru all registers. The rim seems a little narro...

Re: WTT Bach 42 slide

I really like the Edward's TDBAN - Standard tenor dual bore all nickel trombone slide. .547/.562" with a 42. If you like a nickel slide, this is a good one. They are currently on sale for $800.. Good luck

I have a Reeves-Brass Ark silver, one piece, large shank, 25.55mm rim, medium deep cup 5G "Mercury" mouthpiece for sale. I used it for two weeks, but have decided the rim is a little too narrow for me. It slots well and helps produce a full sound but doesn't fit my face. Minor insertion marks, other...

Re: Help? Mouthpiece recommendation for Bach 42H?

So you have mated other slides with the bell section and it plays better--correct??

Is the slide marked as a Bach 42 slide??

Re: Compatible slides for a Bach 42

Original Greenhoe slides/bells are interchangeable with Bach 42/50 slides/bells from a fit perspective. The slide tenon on an older Bach 36/42 is a two piece tenon. It can easily be swapped with a 42 two piece tenon. You are only swapping the threaded taper. I have found that with a Shires slide is ...

Re: Instrument Innovations Rotary valve

I had a new wrap built around Mike and Kim's valve. The wrap is configured so that it is compatible with Greenhoe bell mounts. I use a Greenhoe yellow bell, Bach 42 Friedman bell, a nickel 42 bell and a 36G bell with the wrap. In my opinion it is the best valve on the market. It is open and very cen...

Re: Yamaha 891z-Lawler - King 3B

A .525 is a safe bet. If you decide to try a .508 I would highly recommend a Selmer Boler. It's very under rated.
