There are also a few small dents on the end of the slide crook, but otherwise the horn is in perfect playing condition. I purchased it new in 2003 and used it through college, but it hasn't been played much in the last 6 years. I'm downsizing my collection ahead of a move. Includes A gold-plated Wick 5AL mouthpiece and a Protec case that's well-worn but structurally sound. Asking price is $2,500, but willing to negotiate.

For Sale: Greenhoe Optimized 88HT
For sale is the great Greenhoe optimized 88HT for only ***$2200*** I'm the second owner of the horn, made in about 2010. Greenhoe Optimized Trombones include the patented Greenhoe Valve, specifically designed part upgrades, as well as many of the Greenhoe Performance Innovations incorporated on Greenhoe Trombones. Greenhoe Optimized Trombones feature careful hand assembly of each instrument. The valve may be the best available. Both valve caps and 3 lead pipes included, as is a Cronkhite case in perfect condition (black and red). There are about 3 very small bell mute dings, which I've tried to show in the pictures. Slide is great. Leather guard included. This is an amazing horn, and the same model just sole on eBay for over $3000. Buyer pays shipping, but I have a great box from Shires, which will help with the cost. This is a truly amazing price. If you want 2 new horns, I'll package it with my Kanstul 1688 TIS for $4000!

For Sale: Silver Bach 42
Used Silver Plated Bach 42 (straight horn), serial number 75xxx. The horn has great slotting and sound, and the slide is in good condition. Included in the sale will be an older style Protec case. There are scratches and other minor cosmetic blemishes around the horn, but in my opinion the sliver plate conceals these well. Email me for pictures. For the trombone, the Protec case, and shipping, I'm looking for $1500 (but I'm open to offers in that ballpark).

For Sale: Olds S23 Bass Trombone
Olds S23Made in 1970, give or take 6 months, based on serial number. A professional level instrument of its era. Professionally maintained. Nice slide action, only slight slide stocking wear, and no noticeable dents or damage. Shipped UPS at my cost within the U.S. Includes the Vincent Bach 6-1/2A mouthpiece that it came with when I bought it, but I will be happy to include a Schilke 59, which I think is more suitable. It provided a very satisfactory first step for me from tenor to bass, but I simply own too many trombones. $1500. Link to photos:

For Sale: Jupiter JSL-740
Hello! I have a like-new Jupiter JSL-740 for sale. Cosmetically, it's in almost perfect condition (I barely even played it, ~6 months at most), and has no dents and is almost completely free from scratches. The slide itself is incredibly smooth. The slide lock, though, is stuck, though I wouldn't imagine it being a hard fix. The triggers are really sticky at the moment, but I'd imagine that it's out of lack of recent usage (I hadn't even touched it for about a year up until today). It comes with its original case and a used 1 1/2G large shank mouth piece. Given that it probably needs some servicing on the triggers to unstick them (or maybe none if you have experience oiling rotary) I'm willing to sell it for $1,999, which includes domestic shipping. If you're interested, I can send dozens of photos of the instrument, so feel free to reach out!

For Sale: Cerveny Rotary Valve Trombone
Antique V.F. Cerveny rotary valve tenor trombone for sale. I know very little about this 4-valved instrument other than the engraved trademark, "V.F. Cerveny a Synove," and that the maker is based on Hradec Králové, Czech Republic. I've tried contacting Cerveny to date the serial number but have never received a reply. I got it from a flea market and the seller knew nothing about it, but it appears to be from the first half of the 20th century and of the sort of design I've seen often in images of European brass bands of the era, especially cavalry bands (I'm a historian who dabbles in 19th and early 20th century military music). It has roughly the shape of a modern valve trombone, and it has an extremely long tuning slide at the bottom of the valve section, so it can be tuned to either Bb or C (the 4 individual valves are tunable to accommodate the two possible keys). The instrument is playable and it gets a slightly hybrid baritone-like sound because of the wide (9.5 in) bell and the conical bore through the bell section. Cosmetically it shows its age, but it's entirely free of rust and red rot. The bell has many small dents and most of the lacquer is gone. The valve section's lacquer is also gone, but there are no major dents in the main tuning slide or valve tubes. The valves also move a bit slowly by modern standards. It's a fascinating piece that I've enjoyed playing around with, but I need to downsize my trombone collection ahead of a move. There is no case, and the mouthpiece receiver is compatible with small shank mouthpieces (although I think it may have been designed for an outdated shank size slightly bigger than that). I'll share photos upon request. Asking price is $400, but I'll consider any serious offer. Buyer pays shipping, payment accepted via PayPal.

For Sale: Cerveny CVT-576 F Valve Bass Trombone/Cimbasso
Cimbasso Bargain!!! Cerveny CVT-576 F Valve Bass Trombone* - only $1900 (*Cerveny calls their straight model a "valve bass trombone" and the bent version of the identical instrument CVT 576-4CPX (Note the nearly identical model number) a "cimbasso," but the straight horn is much cheaper, for whatever reason. This sale includes several improvements by NRE Master Craftsman Norm Epley: 1 Added tubing to bring pitch down to A=440 (the new horn is very sharp) 2 Two tuning slide triggers (1st and 4th valves) With these alterations the horn plays very well in tune. This sale also includes: 1 Contrabass trombone stand by Hornguys of LA ($60 value - for resting the instrument while not playing) 2 ErgoBone stand ($150 value - to hold horn while playing) (note- this is the floor stand - the chest stand will not work with this horn) Why so cheap, with all of these extras? Ray bought this when it was temporarily cheaper (currency fluctuations). He played it on the KY Opera's "Otello" where it got very favorable comments from other musicians and audience members. Then the KY Opera changed staff, stopped hiring an extra trombonist for Italian operas, and gave the Cimbasso part to the tubist. Now you can gain from Ray's loss! This horn has a euro shank (in between large and small shank trombone). Euro mouthpiece included - Cerveny "3G", plus one, your choice, from the following: 1 Bach 1 1/4 G (bass trombone) used 2 Bach 2G (bass trombone) used 3 Holton 1 1/2 G (bass trombone) used 4 Doug Elliot shank - custom bored out by Norm - should fit your Elliot mouthpiece upper (very slightly used) 5 Tuba mouthpiece to be named later - custom shank-fit by Norm (used) You may consider getting the shank changed to a large trombone or tuba shank, but it worked fine for me with the bored-out Doug Elliot shank and a 114-K bass trombone upper. This horn barks at f like a cimbasso should, and plays a rich low sound at p. Email Ray for the links to pictures and more information: New, the unimproved horn would cost you $2343.95:(? 2.190,00) IF you can find it (Musician's Friend sometimes lists it as "currently unavailable.") Other Cimbassi list on for $9K to $14K.
