Hagmann valve narrow slide neck clearance?

Post by billyball » Sat Jul 07, 2018 9:30 am

Hi,

I've been thinking of buying a Hagmann valve section for my Shires tenor. Has anyone else tried this?

I prefer the "narrow" width on my slide, so I worry that there won't be enough clearance between the valve and my neck.

I see on the Hagmann website that they have done a conversion job on an Elkhart 88H (http://www.trombone.ch/EN/customshop.html#conn), so maybe it's not a problem.

Thanks.

I've played a 88H with a Hagmann on several occasions and there is no problem with the clearance, at least for me.

I tried a Hagman when I was getting my Rath and it rubbed my neck. Ended up going with rotax. As they say, YMMV. But the Rotax was cheaper and has been an excellent valve. Very fast and short throw.
