WTB: Shires .525” Slide

Looking for : .525” Shires Slides - not too picky about which permutations. Ideally with both a leadpipe for small and large bore but not a deal breaker if that’s not possible. If you have something let me know! I could be into a whole horn if the right thing came along.... Looking forward to hearin...

Re: Build quality Shires, Rath and Greenhoe

My comment was not specifically aimed at you greenbean, more just in general.

Also, holding any manufacturer to “perfect” as a standard is not realistic, as blast already pointed out.

Re: Build quality Shires, Rath and Greenhoe

I own and play a Shires .547 (& have owned another; sold for unrelated reasons) and have never had any problems with workmanship. As for Greenhoe trombones currently being produced: Why should quality of build be diminished? Schilke produces some pretty meticulously made trumpets! Why would the new ...

Re: Butler Trombone Slide

Finlayson actually comments on the video:
“Alexander, the carbon fiber slide used in this video is made by Spurling. All inquiries should be directed to Patrick Spurling about purchasing a slide.”

Butler uses a carbon fiber right hand “cross tube” with his slides.

Re: Bach LT16M Counterweight

I have a Corporation LT16M and a Bach counterweight fits perfectly. To the best of my knowledge Bach only makes the one weight for their Stradivarius models. I double checked on their parts website and took a screenshot of what models the weight fits. Also, Bach uses the same tuning slide assembly f...

Re: New member

Packer trombones are nice instruments, they are certainly better built than many Chinese makes. A good price point for new instruments. The Rath collaboration is also a nice aspect, though not too different from what Shires did with “Eastman by Shires” *before* they were actually the same company. M...
