Trombone Pics

Post by DakoJack » Fri Apr 20, 2018 1:13 am

I wish we had a section devoted to people showing pictures of their trobones/gear. In fact feel free to post pictures of fancy gear in this thread Ill put something of mine down below to get it going.


Also Im still pumped about this site being up to replace the forum and can already see improvments from the forum. Lets keep making it better and better I wish I was computer savy to help out.

Some pics of my 50B3-CR. This is the most recent iteration. That Benn Hansenn’s old workbench, BTW.

Over the Easter break I competed at the Australian National Band Championships.
Our Brass band finished a very solid 4th in C Grade, pretty much an improvement of 6 places compared to the same competition last year!!
Our Bandmaster was extremely pleased with our efforts.
I also participated in a Quartet and Quintet, but unfortunately we did not go as well with those.
Finally, I entered into my first solo competition in over 15yrs, and am please to say I finished 6th!! :biggrin:
Admittedly, there were only 7 competitors that showed up out of 8 registrations, but I was only 7pts off sharing the win, so it was a very tight competition.
Here's a pic of me having a run through my solo with the official accompanist a couple of days prior to the comp.
I'm playing a Shires Custom Bass Trom with Independent Thayler Valves.

Some pictures of my Renaissance slide trumpet, as it's probably the fanciest/craziest/weirdest instrument I own.

Yes - a single telescoping slide. It has about 4½ positions (your arms can't reach further anyway) - but it is not used to play low, so you are not really missing notes (the only notes you could possibly need and don't have are :bassclef: :line3: and the Eb above it). It is in modern Eb, but we usually play in C at a=523 or G at a=699, occasionally in D at a=466. If I have to play in modern pitch, I put a half-step crook to bring it to D at a=440 or C at a=494 (playing with shawms requires playing everything up a step). :clever:

I guess you could technically call it a "leadpipe" as it is the first (lead) tube (pipe), but we avoid calling it that, just as you wouldn't call the first inner tube a leadpipe on a trombone, as it has none of the characteristic of modern leadpipes. It is just a straight tube with no taper or venturi (in the case of my horn, of the same bore as the instrument's nominal bore) that slides into the outer tube/first yard of the corpus (wider than the bows or second yard on my horn).
