Re: wooden mouthpiece

it is made of walnut.I have now played the mouthpiece extensively. The workmanship is first class The sound is a bit darker than with a comparable Bach. Due to the slightly narrower cup and the slightly smaller throat, less air is needed. The rounded edge gives good flexibility and feels very nicely...

Re: Serafin Alschausky patent

There are precursors to trombones with valves in the slide section. Kruspe has a patent from 1906 for a combined alto-tenor trombone with a valve in the slide section. Rumors have that Robert Mueller developed it with Kruspe. It doesn't have a double slide. is a picture avaiable from the Kruspe alt...

But i must play it longer, that i can say m...

Re: Mouthpiece for high notes?

The bigger point is that there are different rules for different embouchure types. Of the two major types, one needs a relatively large diameter to have an adequate low range, and the other needs a relatively small diameter to have an adequate high range. How can i test which major type i am? I hav...

Re: Alto Trombone Pitch?

Last week, i have bought a used Pretzschner alto trombone in F. Top condition, for 380 USD.
The bore is 12,6/13,6 mm. It has a very secure 7th position.
What a good deal.

Re: Alto Trombone Pitch?

some german makers build altos in F. Lätzsch, Helmut Voigt, Kromat. They have a normal tenor receiver.
Lätzsch with a C valve and Helmut Voigt with an Eb or C valve

This is Heinz's first DE so I'll mention this. In a post in 2012, Doug said putting oil or grease on the threads does not help them not to stick, but a bit of Teflon tape works. He also has very clear instructions how to disassemble if they do get stuck. Yes, you are right, my first. But as I know ...

thanks for your great response. What a nice story. My english is not perfect. Did I understand you correctly? He widened the lower end of a T85 leadpipe with a 11C shank until it fitted?

Re: Alto and Small Tenor Mouthpiece(s?)

I later replaced the leadpipe with a Shires and switched to the "Alto" shank taper. It makes more of a difference than any of the numbers on tenor, I've found. (In other words, the difference from say, a 2 to a 3 on a 500 bore horn isn't nearly as big as the difference from an "Alto" to a 2). Just ...

This Romantic French trombone, which I only spotted a few days after it sold (for probably quite a bit above its actual value). If anyone knows the person who bought it........
it looks a bit like my Hawkes from 1905 which is still playable.

Re: Alto and Small Tenor Mouthpiece(s?)

i think the same mouthpiece for both works fine. I prefer a not to shallow mouthpiece for alto.
Not a C cup. Perhabs a Bach 7,9, 12, works for both.

Weird side note, Pickett makes an ophicleide mouthpiece, developed in conjunction with Dr. Richard Demy, that is a fantastic hybrid of period architecture and modern adjustments.

You remember right. Its a large Helmut Voigt alto with a short 36 Bach slide. This "german/american friendship"

That means you could make a Bb tenor/alto trombone just by making a straight short trombone with a really curved bell section tubing. No valve, just continuous looped tubing in the gooseneck.
