Brass Medic Mt. V 50 leadpipe size comparison

Hello all, Does anyone know the specs of the Brass Medic Mt. Vernon 50B leadpipe (mine is rose brass) as compared to the Edwards B3 (stock) leadpipe? I assume they are close. I am curious just how close? Obviously the materials are different. Yellow vs Rose brass. But in terms of shape, length, and ...

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. All this is fixable, especially with 169 and 183 Holtons that have a crossbar on their tuning slides. No big deal for a good tech. Chris Tha...

If it's for a TR 181 or 183, buy a tuning slide bow from Conn Selmer. Remove the original bow and put in the new bow. 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...

That link is for a Tr 181 not a Tr 180 unfortunately. They are completely different horns.

Last year I had Terry Pierce in NYC build one for me out of the original second slide.
Terry is the MAN!

My achievable dream is having a nice Holton 169 or early TR185. I still miss the early TR185 I had!

If I dream big... I'd love to have M&W whip something up for me... either a Holton style single valve with a plugin valve or a setup similar to Minick.

I have often wondered about the unique idiosyncrasies between the different 169’s...let alone the 185’s!
