Re: Plastic Trombone comparison

I second what you say about checking the valves on the Cool Winds trombone. I got to try one that we got in at work recently and it sounds surprisingly good for a plastic instrument, but the valve was pretty dicey. I don’t know if it was just misaligned or what it’s deal was, but it threw intonatio...

Re: Plastic Trombone comparison

Well Tromba were initially P Bone but there was a difference in Chinese business ethics and we have what we have today (I would stick with P-Bone as I know some of the guys who brought it out and I like them - they deserve the credit and therefore the sales for being the designers!) so there is ver...

Re: Getzen 3047AF Serial Numbers

My old Getzen only had the 3047 model number on the bell. As far as I’m aware that number on the valve is the serial number (at least it’s what all the paperwork from the shop I bought it at listed as the serial). My was purchased in 2015 so I don’t know if the older ones had a different system for ...

Re: Finally upgraded my Slide lube.

I grew kind of depends on the horn. I think old school Ponds cold cream works best on my ‘50s 2B. Seems like it’s just thick enough to stick in and smooth out the imperfections. I have by and large run into the same sort of thing. On my old Getzen it always worked best with Trombotine. I tried Slid...

Re: Hammond 12ML Mark Identification

I’m not sure about the 3, but the V is probably for Santa Clara Vanguard. So after a bit of googling it turns out you are 100% correct. https://m.facebook.com/SCV/posts/10156069727960336 Hammond did a series of mouthpieces for them at one point. Mv2541 may be correct about the mouthpiece being numb...

Hammond 12ML Mark Identification

I was taking a closer look at a Hammond 12ML large shank mouthpiece I purchased used over the summer and noticed a couple markings on it that I don’t have on my small shank 12ML. I’m curious if anyone knows what they mean and if there may be any difference between this one and a 12ML without the mar...

Re: Getzen 1047F. Thoughts?

It's been a few years now, but I have spent a little time playing one the 1047FR with the red brass bell. I really like it. If I hadn't been so hell bent on getting something with an axial at the time I would, (and probably should) have bought it. For the price they are really hard to beat. I think ...

Re: Marcinkiewicz most similar to Schilke 51?

Yeah, the spec sheet on their site gives me a headache. I was poking around it this morning curious about what they have that would be close to a Bach 5G or 7C, but I can't make sense of the darn thing :idk:. Much like Bruce was saying what I see on the spec sheets does not match any comparisons giv...

Re: Denis Wick Rims

Quick update I had to shelve this project for a few weeks, but I got my hands on a Wick 5BS to play test at one of my local shops today. I can definitely see why people like them. I was able to get much fuller sound on my 3B than I could with my old Bach 7C or my current king piece. The rim however ...

I have a Getzen 3047AF trombone with the yellow brass bell up for sale. This is an excellent trombone with a Getzen axial flow valve for the F-Attachment. This was purchased in 2015 from demo stock at one of my local shops. It does have some minor cosmetic issues from it time in demo stock, a patch ...

Re: Denis Wick Rims

Try some Bach small shank stuff. Bach 7C or 11C are always classics! I used to use a Bach 7C on my small bore. It ended up needing replacing and I already had the King mouthpiece so figured I'd just give that a go. So I'm definitely looking at these and a couple Yamaha and Schilke mouthpieces that ...
