Small accidental discovery

Post by Mv2541 » Wed Jan 09, 2019 12:24 pm

I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who use both Rath trombones and Elliott mouthpieces, so here is something for you:

If your shank is stuck to your cup, you can insert it into the bell section slide receiver and tighten the nut around the shank. Then just twist the cup a tiny bit until the seal is broken and viola! I would loosen the nut and remove the mouthpiece before completely separating the two parts but that should be fairly obvious.

I think a box end wrench would be a safer discovery. You don't want to damage that part of your Rath putting unnatural stress on it.
