    Tenor Trombones - For Sale
For Sale: 1933 Conn 80H Special New Symphony
Price reduced! 1933 Conn factory-made custom 80H Special New Symphony tenor trombone with f-attachment. It has the original lacquer and is in very good condition. Very few of these were made, and this one was owned by New York trombonist Vincent Clarke when he was performing with Toscanini's NBC Symphony of the Air, the Radio City Music Hall orchestra, etc. The slide is marked 78H and the bell section is marked 80 H SPEC. The bell section is likely a combination of a 78H bell section (for bell tuning slide instead TIS) and an 80H bell section (for the F attachment). Originally it didn't have a slide lock, but it has been refitted with 88H-style spring barrels and an interchangeable leadpipe. Comes with Bach 42 case. Asking $1,500. obo. Please call 651-983-0865 for addiitional information or to request photos.

For Sale: Elkhart Conn 8H Trombone
1958 Elkhart Conn 8H Trombone in Excellent Condition $1767 Snohomish, WA This is a 1958 Elkhart Conn 8H in excellent condition. As was standard during this period, there is no slide lock, although it is quite easy to lock the slide using a woman's hair band, and I will include one with this sale. This is a wonderful playing instrument with the classic 8H sound. It sounds phenomenal in an orchestra. There is some plating loss on the inner tubes. The slide action is an 8 out of 10. Am selling 'as is', the next owner modifying or tweaking as they shall choose. Reason for selling - buying a house and must thin the herd. Please feel free to ask questions. Buyer is responsible for all Paypal and shipping fees. Will ship to Europe where I have many former happy customers. Thanks for checking her out. PS: For an added $200, I will include a rare custom Mt. Vernon 4 mouthpiece with a Conn Remington shank. The duo, trombone and Mt. Vernon 4 are pretty awesome! $1767 Photos available upon request..

For Sale: Bach LT42
1970 Bach Corporation 42 Bell with 1977 Lightweight Slide This is a bell and slide combination. Selling my first teachers horn. This Bach Corporation bell was purchased at the same time as his Bach 50B (also up for sale, circa 1970), so it is fair to say that the bell is at least a 1970 or earlier. In 1993 he acquired the Lt (lightweight) slide in a trade. It's an excellent playing slide and works well with the bell. I had the slide optimized and refinished. The slide action is excellent. The case is original. $1495. I hope that this trombone will find a buyer who will enjoy and play it. Will ship to anywhere in the continental United States. Buyer is responsible for Paypal and Shipping. Photos available upon request.

For Sale: Greenhoe GC4-1
Greenhoe GC4-1 Price: $3995. I picked this trombone out personally at the 2017 ITF, and it is an amazing player. Nonetheless, it has received minimal attention this past year (approximately 30 hours of playing) as I have been focusing on jazz in multiple venues in my area on my small bore horn. Greenhoe's are very consistent, and I have no problem repurchasing a new one once I buy a new home. No dents. No blemishes. No wear. Absolutely perfect condition. Same condition as the day I bought her. Sells new for $4995. Will ship to anywhere in the continental U.S.A. and overseas. Please feel free to ask questions. Photos available upon request. Thanks for looking! PS: Here are the specs... GC4-1Y Bell Material: Yellow Brass Bell Design: Two-piece Bell w/ Unsoldered Rim Bell Thickness: LT/M Bell Size: 8.5" Bore Size: .547" Main Tuning Slide: Yellow Brass Valve: Greenhoe Valve w/ Yellow Brass Tubing Valve Cap: Standard Handslide: Rose Brass Handslide Crook: Nickel Silver Leadpipe: Interchangeable (2)

For Sale: Bach 42
I'm selling an Elkhart Vincent Bach 42 Strad trombone (Straight horn, no valve). The serial number is 53xxx. Guessing it was built in either 1981 or 1982. The horn is in great condition and was taken care of by previous owner. There was a dent in the bell flare that was completely buffed out. Both slides are free moving. This horn plays very well and has great resonance. Definitely one of the good Bach bells. Looking for $1400 or best offer. If you have any questions or want pictures, send me an email. Buyer pays for shipping.

For Sale: Custom Shires Tenor Trombone
This is a fantastic horn!! It's the standard Shires Bach style bell flair, BII. All nickel silver slide, with their standard nickel silver slide bow. It's got their standard tuning slide. Valves are the Shires Thayer valves -silver plated, they have actual Brass tubes through the valves (oh yeah, it makes a difference! ) not like Bach on this horn, which is just one piece aluminum with a titanium coating. More info on the Shires website if you want. The previous owner said that it has the best slide action of any Bass slide he ever played. I would agree. Notes slot really really well! It was tweaked for Gabe Langford. UPDATE - I recently spoke with Mike Corrigan of BAC instruments who worked for Shires in 2001 when this horn was made. He believes he worked on this horn based on the Serial Number and confirmed that there has been custom work done on it so it is a bit more "tricked out". Mike made my new custom BAC horn which is why I am selling this one..

For Sale: Custom Bach LT50B3OG
I am selling a custom style Bach Lt50B3OG bass trombone. The lightweight slide was previously the personal custom slide owned by artist/craftsman Michael McLemore (before M & W Trombones was founded). It comes with a removable Bach open lead pipe and plays ... like a dream. The bell is a brand new Bach 50BG 9.5-inch gold brass bell - and a really excellent one too! The custom valve section has been appraised as a Dick Akright, with valves estimated as either late Mount Vernon or early Elkhart, with excellent compression and a beautiful center. The bell section and valves are unlacquered - and feels great to play. All together this is a fabulous bass trombone combo that I'd like to keep, were I not holding on to my Mt. Vernon for sentimental reasons and hoping to buy a house. But I would easily keep this as my main horn and in no way be compromising! I am selling for $3800 + shipping and Paypal fees (or zero fees through Zelle). Note: Online this configuration with Lt slide sells for: $5269 and the ist price: $6900, so you are getting a hand assembled custom slide and valve section with Mt. Vernon valve parts and brand new great sounding gold brass 50 bell for a considerable savings off the list price. Photos available upon request.
