FS: Bach 36C convertible

Post by hyperbolica » Fri Feb 14, 2020 1:11 pm

For sale is a Bach 36C convertible. Switches between straight horn and F attachment. Press fit Brass Lab leadpipe.

Plays great in both configs, although I have to say I prefer the straight setup.

Cosmetically not perfect, but functionally excellent. Comes with older french style case. $1250 + shipping

Photos pending.

Is this a stock 36C or one a tech converted?

If it's original, the big problem is that the brace near the tuning slide (not on the tuning slide) is located very close to the tuning slide. Such that the counterweight will not allow the tuning slide to close completely.

This is not the case on the 36CO, since they were able to design it so the brace is located where you would expect it to be on a straight horn.

I'll take pictures in the morning. Wish you could play it, though. I'm not a Bach guy, but this has a great feel and very good intonation. Must be the leadpipe.

There are an awful lot of pictures and only the first would load on my computer. The parts look just like my LT36CG except you have the standard slide and a yellow bell.

I had it set up so only the first picture showed and the rest were in a list to save space. But anyway.

I got the instrument from Greenbean, and I think he did the conversion.

I've started a 8h/78h project (which may wind up with that Bach 34 bell on it) , and on top of my 79h and 88h w/525 horns, this is redundant.
