    Tenor Trombones - For Sale
For Sale: Conn 79H
$1500 includes trombone and case. Paypal preferred. Shipped only within US, you pay shipping. Conn 79h, 0.525 bore, probably late '80s. Takes a small shank mpc. I believe it has a rose brass bell, but because the lacquer is so dark, I'm not 100% sure on that. The bell is ~8.5" diameter. The only marking on the bell is CG Conn LTD, Artist, along the side of the bell. No engraving. The slide is very nice, no catches, lubes up very nice, easy 9/10. No wear on the stockings. The lacquer has some pits and scratches in it. The case is a generic square coffin in fair condition, similar to a King 3B case in shape. The trigger mechanism is solid, and both tuning slides work well. There's only one blemish I can find, it looks like a mute ding. There may have been a dent removed from the tuning slide, but it was well done. Plays very nicely, nice dark sound due to red brass bell and projects well due to larger bell diameter. Sweet upper range, and surprisingly rich trigger range into the pedals. These horns are extremely hard to find, especially in this condition.

Getzen 3047AFR. Getzen custom series trombone for sale. Excellent shape overall, with no dents. A few scratches and wear from everyday use. The bell, main tuning slide and hand slide are not lacquered, the valve section is lacquered. Both tuning slides and the valve work flawlessly.

For Sale: Shires Tenor Trombone
For Sale: Shires Tenor Trombone 1Y Bell, Thayer valve, TB47 Slide (.547 bore with a nickel bass crook). Tuning slide is B2. This horn is about 15 years old, but I've hardly played it in the past 10 years and have decided it deserves a new home. It has been well maintained and has had two professional owners. I purchased the bell section from Toby Oft in 2001. The overall condition is very good, especially the slide action, which is a 9/10. The horn has a big sound, is free blowing, and has a terrific low register. It can take a lot of air and still hold together nicely. Cosmetically, there is a bit of lacquer wear in places, including on the slide handles. Please email me for pics and details. I'm in Dallas if you'd like to try the horn, otherwise, happy to include shipping in the US. $2800, with an SKB hard case.

For Sale: Yamaha YBL-621
Yamaha YBL-621; had Baltimore Brass swap a Rotax valve for the valve that came with the horn. Overall lacquer about 80%; no indication of major dents; usual mute dings. Slide has just been serviced by John Sandhagen. Bell has no markings apart from YBL-621 near the slide connector, and is the color of a rose brass bell, though I haven't seen anything saying that these horns were offered that way. Slide also says YBL-621. One of the nicest things about the horn is its weight, which I believe is very light. Horn plays very well; valve and straight section sound/blow very close. Slide was in pretty good shape before it went to John, so I imagine it will be excellent now (haven't gotten it back yet; ETA 8/21). $1900 including shipping. Has the original case but if you want that it will be another $150 because it's the original wooden case (in serviceable but not great condition). Shipping to continental US only. Bank check or postal money order. If you're in Baltimore DC area you're welcome to come try it. Very nice horn. Selling it because I found an excellent YBL-612 which I really like.

For Sale: Bach 50T3
Professional Vincent Bach 50T3 bass trombone for sale. The horn is in great shape and has a rich full sound. It has been used professionally for the past 6 years and has some minor dents on the bell due to daily use. The Thayers section was aligned and checked by John Sandhagen, from the Boneyard, in Los Angeles a year ago. The slide is in great shape and moves very smoothly, it needs some minor work on one of the inner tubes but it doesn't really affect the way the horn plays. I can also include a great second Bach 50 slide (serial number 50143) that I purchased this year. The slide was personally searched and picked by Noah Gladstone, from the Brass Ark, in the Los Angeles area and plays just wondeffully. The horn comes with a Glenn Cronkhite flight case. Please email me for pictures and more details. Price is $4285 OBO for the whole package. Shipping negotiable within the continental USA.
