Re: FS Six small shank mouthpieces (Bach, Schilke, Reynolds)

UPDATE:

1. Vincent Bach Corp. 12 (no C): Nice shape. $25
4. Benge 12C: $10 (substitute any of the dozens of 12C's I have in a box: Bach, King, Conn, etc)
BENGE SOLD BUT I HAVE LOTS OF 12C'S!
6. Reynolds 9A: Decent shape. Some scratching but on the outside of rim. $18

Re: FS: Holton TR180

Yes, I agree that the Holtons feel a bit lighter than Bachs and many other basses. I think the ergonomics are excellent on this horn.

Re: What bass would you mail-order if you couldn't try first?

I would recommend these (that I have played):

Getzen 1052
Rath R900
Getzen 3062 (if you are into that sort of thing)

And these (that I have not played):

Shires Q
Eastman

(Actually, my top recommendation would be to buy used.)

Re: step up .525 bores

There seems to be 356R's around to choose from. The 3B+, Benge 175, Getzen 1025f, are pretty difficult to find and more expensive I believe. I have a small budget, so I think the Yam 356R might be our best bet. Yam 446 is usually above my price range. Thanks all. You are exactly right. Go for it. T...

I didn't have the bell cut, so I can't make a before-after comparison. But the idea was to focus the sound more and allow for cleaner, more pointed attacks.
