FS: (2) New York Bach Model 6 Trombones **SOLD**

Post by snieckarz » Fri Jul 20, 2018 10:54 am

For sale are two low serial number New York Bach Model 6 trombones. #821 built around 1937 and #236 built in 1933.

Just picked up #821 from the shop. Much to my surprise they did a great job with the slide! My regular tech is neck-high in tuba customizations at the moment. So last week was the first time I got a chance to play #821 with a functionable slide. This horn has a 401 bell and is on the lighter side. It has a fantastic upper register that is effortless with a Bach 11 mouthpiece. Certainly a great horn for playing lead. It does have a nice darker patina, some wear throughout, some on the upper inner slide tube, and notably the bell brace where the thumbplace is. The bottom of the slidecrook is slightly pushed in. Probably the slide was dropped since these early horns did not have slidelocks. Packaging this horn with a NY Bach 12C mouthpiece I'd sell for $1700 due to the low serial number and playability.

#236 needs a slidejob, most likely a new slide crook, and two small smidgen areas of wear on the stockings. The slide is also marked "6T" so it might be a lightweight handslide. This horn has a 415 bell that is heavier than #821 with the 401 bell. The throat appears to be larger and it also has a thicker, heavier french bead to the bell. I tried to capture this in some photos that are in the folder for #236. I played the #236 bell with the regular weight slide from #821 and Bach 11 mouthpiece. In this combination it has a fat sound throughout all registers. It plays darker and has an upper register that doesn't get strident with loud dynamics. Price for this horn is $1100.

Both horns have nickle silver goosenecks, nickle silver tuning slide tubes and ferrules, and no slidelocks.

Combined, these two horns would make a stellar small bore combination package. With the two different weighted bells and handslides this could be a package some players dream of, especially with the low serial numbers. Here's a listing of Bach trombones registered on the Bach Loyalist website: showing the uniqueness of the low serial numbers. More impressive would be to contact Conn-Selmer and get a copy of the shopcards to see who the original owners were.


As a package, I'd be willing to sell both horns for $2500 total, with shipping in the lower 48 States included, payment by Paypal. I will sell internationally but would need to calculate shipping before final total. If you are interested in purchasing or have any questions, feel free to message me here. Thanks!
