Re: Stroboconn

Very cool. I have some thrift store combo amps and powered mixers that need new caps etc. but I'm stuck in the "find time to clear some bench space" phase that indefinitely precedes every electrical project.

Re: Selling on Reverb?

I've had good buying experiences. It's all been straightforward music shop and musician-to-musician transactions.

I also had a reasonably priced cymbal sit there for weeks at a going eBay price so I have to wonder about the numbers.

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...

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...
