FS/T: Shires Small Bore/YSL646/Shires Bass Components

Post by Matt K » Wed Jun 20, 2018 6:34 pm

So I thought I'd consolidate everything that I have into one place:

Shires Small bore
Leadpipe 2.5N
Slide: T08LW (w/ saturn water key)
Bell Section: S1YM8 (Small bore, 2 piece bell, yellow brass, medium weight, 8")

I'll post pictures later today after I take them. The tuning slide is silver plated yellow brass. Most of the horn is raw brass, but there is some lacquer left on it (inside the bell for example); not the prettiest horn but it plays quit well! Recently had a chem clean and a slide alignment done. Slide still isn't quit 10/10 but it's pretty good in my opinion. Could work out a trip to the slide dr in the price.

Asking ca. $1875, incl. shipping CONUS

YSL646

Has a new tuning slide & handslide crook. The F attachment is a little out of alignment with the rest of the horn, although it still plays quite well so I decided to leave it alone. You'll also note that the knuckle had been repaired at some point (prior to my owning it). I went ahead and had my tech install a little support on the lower bell brace (pictured) that attaches to the F attachment tubing. The lower bell brace also has a very slight tear that I only noticed when another TBC member pointed out to me when they were trying it out earlier today. There is some stocking wear but the slide still is in pretty good shape and was just aligned. I didn't take as good of picture

Asking $899 OBO

Shires BII 1Y Bell
I was planning on buying this or the Conn 112H bell from below from a friend, but I'm looking for a little lighter. As such, I'll consider offers but otherwise I'll probably hold onto it until I can get an entire bell section for this and then reevaluate selling this separately or something else.

Conn 112H Setup for Shires valves
Same with the above Shires bell. This one is in raw brass. 10", red bell. Currently at Dillon, but it's been there for quite some time. Willing to recall it and trade around or something. Also willing to remove the mounting hardware. (Or go through them, of course!)

Things I'd like for some combination of the above items/cash:
Shires bass valve section (any)
Edwards bass valve section (any)
Bach 50 (any configuration)
Lightweight bass bells, any 'reputable' maker. Preferably with soldered bell bead. Cut bells would be awesome (plan on doing it to the bell anyway).
Ralph Sauer bell (yeah, long shot)
Small bore bell w/ screw bell
MB/Basili Screwbell case (any)
as always: saturn water keys

T = "Conn"/narrow width crook; 08 = 508. The crooks on their small bores are all the same afaik, but they do have a wider option for 525 and 547 horns making the "T" designation presently superfluous as best I can tell.

Add a YSL350C to the list of horns I'd be interested in acquiring in a trade/partial trade.
