FS: Rath R12 Tenor Trombone - Mint Condition

Post by Neo Bri » Sun Nov 10, 2019 5:19 pm

Hola.

As I'm a "Real G" living "the Life", my "Dawgs" told me I need to convert some musical "Bling" into alternative material goods. As such, I'm "Hustlin'" a few instruments.

a. Interested? Advance to page two.
b. Can't do it? Please turn to page 126.

Here's a near-mint condition Rath R12. For those who are wondering about the mind-boggling numbering scheme of Rath instruments, let me illuminate the mystery. The R12 is the smallest-bore trombone made by Rath. It's a .481-.491" dual-bore instrument, just like a King 2B. This particular one plays buttery smooth and is very easy to color. I play it for gypsy-jazz, big-band, and small-group jazz playing. My favorite use is playing Tommy Dorsey ballads with it, but super-technical playing is very easy.

I said near-mint, not mint. What's the issue? There's a lacquer scratch on the slide barrel area (visible on the fifth picture), a tiny mute ding (unphotographable), and an extremely small ding on the tuning slide (also unphotographable...you'd have to hunt for it). What can I say. I play the thing.

Enough of the yammering. Here are some pictures:




Make me an offer! My new email is the first letters of this little poem:

B-eautiful trombones are what we love,
K-iller Chops-Monsters we all wanna be,
B-illions & Billions of notes played,
I-terations of music profound,
Z-ygote. (I got nuthin')
@outlook.com

Remember, my preferences:

* I strongly prefer to ship CONUS, but will consider shipping overseas
* I consider trades of professional-level instruments but prefer PayPal
* Buyer pays PayPal fees, if any

Thanks!

Oooh selling the R12 too! What's your main small bore now with both Raths going out the door?

I TOLD YOU I HAD IT BARRY! But yeah.

Mr. Deacon - I'm not sure I'll use a small-bore. Truth be told, I love these horns - but I need the money.
