For Sale: Bach 16
I'm selling a really great playing Bach 16 from the early 1980's. It's been relacquered, had a more rounded yellow brass slide crook put on the nickel slide, and a Conn slide brace substituted for the Bach one. The horn looks great, and plays great too. It's easy to go from that warm buttery sound to a harder zippy sound. I used this horn at my Broadway show, several recording sessions, and live gigs with singer songwriter types, jazz bands, and rock bands over the course of about a year. I recently bought an old NY Bach and need to sell this one to help pay for that one:( I think this horn is worth anywhere from $1300-1400 but I'm selling it for $1200 because I know it will need some slide work. My repairman in NY says it is about a $150-200 job for him to take apart the slide a realign it correctly. I decided that I"d just knock a couple hundred bucks off the price and allow whomever buys the horn to do it as they please. Right now the slide is about a 7 out of 10 in my opinion. I have pics so email me if you're interested.

For Sale: Kanstul 1602-B
For sale is a Kanstul 1602-B tenor trombone in beautiful condition. - .500" bore - 7 1/2" one-piece bell (hand-hammered lightweight yellow brass) - extra lightweight nickel hand slide - three interchangeable lead pipes This is the model that was designed by Kanstul in collaboration with L.A. trombonist Alan Kaplan. Alan describes that process, and the horn itself, in a very interesting YouTube video: Kanstul's description of the horn is here: This particular horn is in wonderful shape. Overall, "pristine" would be an appropriate description of the horn's condition. The slide is fantastic - super lightweight, no wear at all, and very fast and smooth. It comes with a Wolfpak hard case - looks something like a gig bag, but is actually hard and protective. Kanstul's MSRP on this model is $3145. Musician's Friend sells it for $2229. Make me an offer!
