Best leadpipes for 500 bore tenor?

Post by Stephencarlisletbone »

I recently acquired a conn 100H trombone and I’m wondering what leaderpipes you would recommend for a smaller horn like this?

Shires or Edwards #2 is always a safe starting spot to try. The Brassark 32H replica is also really popular. The threads are different for Shires/Edwards. Brassark doesn't have a small bore set of threads last I inquired. Regardless, you can try these pipes out and put a set of threads on it later. I'm guessing since 100H s still produced you can get your hands on the set of threads from a tech, who can solder it on.

You should also be able to order the other two leadpipes you're missing from Conn. Sometimes Conn pipes work great (I will never sell my 52H pipe). Other times... they're a bit strange (.525 "X" leadpipe). It's quite a rabbit hole to go down, if you want to go down it.

Just a side note: I’m not sure but doesn’t the 100h have a push-fit leadpipe, not threaded? I know for sure the horn it was based on was push-fit but maybe this was changed in the 100h.

I had a 100H and they use friction fit lead pipes. The Conn 6H equiv lead pipe from Brass Ark is a good one, longer than the stock Conn ones though. I had to have a ring of "corrosion" buffed out of the inside of my tube to get the Brass Ark pipe to slide in all the way.
