Re: Alternative Slide Lubricants

I use just the Yamaha on my new Edwards slide. My 50-year old Conns and Holton seem to do better with a light coat of trombotine with the Yamaha added instead of water. Wow!...I've been trying this the past couple of weeks on my Bach 16 slide (it's from the '70's). Amazing....best slide response I'...

Re: Griego Wiest Compared To Schilke 47B

If this helps anyone... Rim...what comes to mind is that the rim 'sort of' feels like a Wick Heritage series style rim, and the outer shape of the mouthpiece is 'kind of' like a Heritage design as well (but honed down)...in that it has less mass where the rim is attached to the body of the mouthpiec...

Re: Bach 16M w/ 16 Bell

So I saved a lot of money this way. Spent a lot trying different mouthpieces, though. Clarification: - maybe the sign of a nice playing leadpipe in a decent horn is that it makes every mouthpiece I put in it makes me sound totally different from one to the other? On horns that aren't so great, I al...

Re: Bach 16M w/ 16 Bell

Oh yeah...nice thing about the 3B crook or the 32H leadpipe is that you keep the great 'Bach sound'....but it's then enhanced and adds more versatility to the horn. I was ready to look for a new horn, as I just wasn't that pleased with the regular 16 slide and the stock leadpipe. So I saved a lot of...

Re: Bach 16M w/ 16 Bell

Thanks! I have been considering getting the crook replaced with something more rounded. Have you noticed a radical difference with the new crook opposed to the older, square one? I'm not sure if its worth doing without having anything to compare it to. What are your thoughts and experiences? My fir...

Re: Bach 16M w/ 16 Bell

Is your slide a duo/bore slide? (the 16 slide) I have a 16 slide (duo/bore, standard brass) and a 16M bell. According to serial numbers, the horn is from the later '70's period of Bach. I don't know exactly who owned it before I bought it as a used horn from Dillon's Music in New Jersey. Great horn,...

Re: Versions of the Bach 16

Don't believe so. I had mine modified/repaired when I was in Toronto by famed repairman Ron Partch / Partch BrassWind (he's also a great bass trombone player!) I think he just soldered it right in place. He never mentioned any adjustments had to be made. He re-aligned slide, etc. and it's been beaut...

Re: Versions of the Bach 16

When I bought my used Bach from Dillons a few years ago, it had a standardweight 70’s vintage 16 slide (duobore) but came with a 16M bell. Nice combination, but the slide crook developed some red rot and needed to be changed. So, we decided to put on a 3B crook. Created an even nicer horn then...but...

Re: Leadpipe mod to improve high register?

Check out the Brass Ark lead pipe model 32H. It’s the single best way to improve a horn I’ve ever found. My Bach ‘16 slide/16Mbell/3B slide crook’ horn plays like a dream now. Every aspect of range, sound, etc. is there now. I have to get used to not trying so hard now to make certain things happen!...
