2. TromboneChat administrators and moderators are in no way endorsing any sellers, advertisers, or items.

3. TromboneChat Classifieds are free.

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.

NOTE: If you want to PM or e-mail another member, you can only do so after having two approved posts.

Looking for a 5b w/ 9" bell with or without valve. Or a Holton w/ 9" bell straight or single valve. Or an 88hK bell.

Anyone?

It must have been a common enough modification - I've seen several straight ones over the years. The oddestome I saw someone just hacksawed off the tubing and filled the ports with epoxy. I dont recommend that!

Yes, I remember that one. It started off at Baltimore Brass. It's bell wound up on a Wessex double valve tenor prototype.

If you look on Facebook Marketplace, someone is selling a 5B in Des Moines, Iowa for $1400.

Thanks, I've seen a few. I'd like to add a Holton 159 to the list.

I believe DJ Kennedy has a few 88h bell sections for sale, I’d give him a try

Thanks.
