    Another light option is the Adams, assuming you go with the standard model. Or you could try a lap pad - I'd be lost without mine!

    FYI, Adams has come out with a new 3+1 non-comp model. It is...

    It's been about 9 years since I cleaned/oiled/whatever a trigger, so I'll only add a couple thoughts.

    First, it's important to note that a triggered slide is too loose to work without the trigger....

    Great suggestions from Doug. I personally like the 5G, but if the SM5 seemed to large I was not sure if this might as well.

    I forgot that Wick made a 6BL. I used a 4BL for a couple years to get...

    The fundamental open is Bb below the second ledger line beneath the bass clef. We have the valves to add another major 7th below that yet. But I have played below that with false tones, down to a G...

    This is estimated to have been made in 1920 and has slides to adjust from high pitch to low pitch. The horn is in great shape from what I can see and it's rather beautiful looking. It has gold wash...
