Bach Sterling Plus bells

Bach has offered silver bells for the past few decades, I believe. I recall some discussion on TTF about these bells being very different than King's silver bells. Can anyone with real-world experience with these bells discuss?... Also, do these horns bring premium prices?... Thanks, y'all! :good:

Re: An Advised Persons Guide To The Science of Instrument Selection

I have to agree with Boneagain. This behavior is shabby. These two threads were a bit misguided but, heck, when I first picked up a trombone not that many years ago, I had plenty of enthusiasm and was short on subject matter knowledge. No one on TTF knocked the wind out of my sails though. Folks wer...

A Conn 48H Connstellation slide would be a perfect fit. A guy has had one posted on CL for quite a while. $300, I think. I don't recall where - somewhere in the western states...

Or if you pick up a complete 48H, they could share the slide! The two horns would sound quite different.
