FS: American Standard "Collector" Bass Trombone

Post by ashughart50wr » Fri Nov 08, 2019 6:36 am

I have a very old F attachment Large shank mouthpiece trombone that is manufactured by American Standard. Lehnert Philadelphia is also engraved underneath the American Standard Manufacturing engraving. I think the horn was possibly a Marine Corps issue (U.S.Q.M.D.) I think this instrument is approximately 100 years old because it does not have a slide lock or a bell-slide attachment screw tightening mechanism. The F attachment does work but the slide (5 out of 10) needs a technician. Overall the horn is not in bad shape but after playing with it I have decided it is a collectible and NOT a player. If someone is a collector and has use for this instrument I would be happy to pass it on for $125 plus actual shipping costs. I do accept PayPal.

USQMD is United States Quartermaster Department, which was part of the Army. That means it's no newer than about 1912, since that's when the Quartermaster Department became the Quartermaster Corps.

Have you tried it with a modern large shank mouthpiece?

Thanks for the clarification. I was never part of the military but I highly respect all those who served - particularly my Father who served in U.S. Army during the Korean conflict. I did try and used a large shank mouthpiece. It has a King mouthpiece included with the trombone.
