Please do tell.
Well, Holton 185 is having levers split so I can actually use it... very excited for how that turns out. Also have Benn Hansson building me a bell section to end all bell sections, it'll be a monster instrument when done.

Re: Fitting Bach 50 tuning slide to Holton Bass

Holtons and Bachs vary a lot...I've had Holton tuning slides that didn't fit in other Holtons and I've had Bach tuning slides that fitted right into a Holton.

Make sure the legs are the same diameter, otherwise just buy the parts for a tuning slide from Conn Selmer and sell the Bach slide. I would like to be able to use, interchangeably w...
