Re: Getzen Eterna 1062 lead pipe

My 1062 came with three pipes of equal length. But this model has been in production for a long time. I wonder if the leadpipes changed at some point.

Re: A couple more valve trombone questions.

You might also check out the euphonium. It might be better ergonomically than a valve bone. Rich Matteson will give you an idea of what can be done with it as far as jazz goes...

Conn sells a slide box for multiple slides, but I'm not certain if it'll fit wide slides.
Taylor Music was/is selling them for $95. It holds 4 slides nicely. Wide slides fit if you remove or trim the fabric layer that rests on the compartment.
