WTT: Shires dependent rotors for Edwards

Post by pompatus » Wed Jul 01, 2020 3:14 am

Mostly gauging interest...

I’m looking to trade a pre-Eastman Shires dependent rotor valveset for an Edwards dependent rotor section in similar condition. Alternatively/ideally, I’d be happy to trade the entire bell section for similar.

The Shires section plays well and has great compression (strong “pop” when slides are pulled). There are no dents, but the lacquer is showing signs of its age and is worn at contact points. Entire horn was professionally cleaned and serviced in Spring 2020.

-Dependent rotor valve section in F/D
-Rose brass C-taper bass tuning slide
-BII 2Y bell in satin finish with lacquer on top
-Like-new B62-78 slide also available, if a trade for valve section is found.

Photos can be taken and shared in the event serious inquiries present themselves.

The quickest response will be through the email listed in my profile. Thanks!
