For Sale: Shires Tenor Tromobne
I'm selling my Shires large bore tenor trombone. I bought this horn new in 2008 directly from the Shires factory. There is mild lacquer wear on the horn, which is very typical of Shires horns. I have taken very good care of the horn and made sure that it is always in great playing condition. This is a great instrument, but it doesn't match my sound concept or the way I play anymore. I am including a black Wolfpak case with the purchase. The specs on the horn are: Bell: 1G Slide: TB47 Valve: Traditional Rotor Tuning Slide: Yellow brass Leadpipes: 1.5, 2, 2L Extra: Edwards Bullet Brace. Pictures are available Price: $3200 firm

    Bass Trombones - Want to Buy/Trade
Want to Trade: Jupiter XO 1240L
I have a wonderful Jupiter XO 1240L that's about three or four years old. Plays wonderfully with the most open rotors of any rotary Bass I've played. It's consistent from pedal C all the way up to treble clef c, as it speaks well in all registers. I also have a replacement f attachment paddle on it that's made from solid ebony wood. The reason that I'm looking to trade is that I'm going off to college and want something that plays a little bigger. I want the real honking bass trombone experience and I'm not seeming to get it with this horn, but it works perfectly in orchestral/band settings. What I'm looking for: shires/Edwards/Rath or similar horns, anything with haagman or Thayer valves really, but I'll entertain all trade offers, just let me know what you've got!

For Sale: Mack Brass Bass Trombone
For sale is a Mack Brass bass trombone that has been modified to accept Edwards bass leadpipes. Horn is based on the Yamaha 830 Xeno bass trombone, and features a 9.5" gold-brass bell, dual independent traditional rotors (B-flat, F, G-flat, D tuning). Specs list this as a .562 bore all nickel slide, but when modified at Osmun for the Edwards leadpipe receiver, Jim Becker measured the bore at .558. This required a slight modification to some of the standard Edwards bass pipes, but some fit without modification. Included are B1 and B3 yellow brass pipes and a custom B1.5 Sterling Silver pipe ($450 value included in purchase price). Cosmetics are excellent, though there is a pin head sized dent in the G-flat tuning slide (see pictures). Slide was adjusted at Osmun, and rates an 8 out of 10. Standard foam body case included, but not pictured. This is a nice horn, particularly for a doubling tenor player to learn on. Price is $1000 shipped to CONUS, other shipping options at additional cost. Pictures:
