5. Check the post date. It may be quite old. Sellers - update your post to let people know it's SOLD.

Enjoy browsing and posting in the Classifieds! Please send the moderators a PM if you need clarification.

WTB Independent Bass trombone

Post by cozzagiorgi » Thu Aug 15, 2019 2:44 am

Looking for a friend:

Independent bass trombone, budget around 2000 USD. Doesn't have to be mint, but excellent slide and valve action are a must.

Preferably Shires (Q), Rath (00), Bach, Holton, Getzen etc.

Show me what you got :-)

I've got a gorgeous Conn 62HI listed in the classified section. I thought it was terrific with an Edwards #2 leadpipe and a Sauer brace on the lower slide. It's listed at $2950 but we can talk. Lemme know ---- Cheers !! Bob

I am not generally a huge TR181 fan but... I have played this horn and it is fantastic.

Got your mail, but didn't get your pm. Thanks for your pictures. I may get back to you, but I think my friend opted for a Holton for sale at the Brassark.
