FS: 72h

Post by hyperbolica » Tue Jan 28, 2020 10:00 am

72h in good working order. Slide recently rebuilt with an inner tube replaced. Correct length for a 72h. Also has a stop rod for an E pull on F attachment tuning slide. Lacquer about 60%. Slide is in very good condition. No wear-through on stockings. Valve works well. The bell is a little ugly, but if you want to either relacquer or remove the lacquer, that problem is solved. Comes with older gig bag in functional condition.

$975 shipped in USA.

I take it that it has its original leadpipe?

I'm not 100% on that. Paul Abel in Rochester did the work. I believe it's original, he didn't charge me for a leadpipe.

- ah, I get where you're going. I don't have a Remington shank mouthpiece, and all my mouthpieces fit well, so it must have been swapped at some time, or mushed into submission. The leadpipe is in good shape, Paul wouldn't give me a bad one, and the work is about a year old. The slide was formerly used by Dave Richey in the Rochester Philharmonic, according to Paul, so it's a pro setup, whatever it is. It plays like a 72h. I'm not so finely attuned that I can identify what leadpipe is in it by sound.

Looking through old emails, here's what Paul had to say (in May 2019) about this work (Paul is a bass trombonist):
I usually get my tubes from Allied. You’re right, the 70 series slides were longer than the 60 or 100 series horns. Allied sells the longer tubes. I have to shorten them for use on 62H.
I don’t have access to my catalog, but I think they are around 120.00 each. They may have gone up. Been a while since I’ve ordered them. ... The main problem I run into is sometimes I can’t get the old leadpipe out. I’ve been using the George Roberts M&K pipe in my 62H. It’s great! Never cared for the stock 72 pipe.
He had the slide sitting around his shop missing a lower inner tube. He fixed it up for me, adding a new lower inner slide, cleaning and aligning, so I don't think he had to mess with the leadpipe.

Ready to go. Everyone needs a single valve bass.
