    I am sure I will get a lot of disagreement, based on what I have read here so far.

    When COVID happened early last year, all of Linda's and my music ensembles completely shut down by March. Linda...

    Great write-up and playing Vito. I owned a Besson from the 1970's, probably should have kept that one!!

    If it doesn't come out, get a long snake (trombone slide cleaning tool, see picture). You should be able to run that through all of the slides, which is probably where it is. Take all your valves...

    Hard to say without more information. Is the trigger a part of the horn you are trying to sell? In other words, is it already factory installed on your horn? If it is not, but rather just a...

    Thanks for posting, Dave. Dick Nash has to be my absolute favorite trombone player for playing ballads. Man what a sound. It just doesn't get any better. The definition of smooth!

    Very nice review, Jim. I will avoid much elaboration at this point, until all 4 of the reviews are in. But I am happy to see that you found the Sinfonico to be a fine horn, as I did.

    Well, I was going to take a picture of the piece in my Arban's, a fairly current version, but I think we have beat this horse dead. But it was great fun!

    Indeed!! Your turn is an inverted turn! The one in my Arban's book is ascending. Very interesting.

    Hmm, in my Arban's book, I show the turn (gruppetto) on "Robin Adair" as an ascending turn.

    Here is a little image:

    It shouldn't be a bother at all if you call major music stores and find out what they have on hand. Most any large music store with instruments in stock will let you try them out. This is a very...

    Welcome to the forum! If you live near a large music store, perhaps there will be some there to try. First off, though, you need to figure out what your budget is. If it is $3K or less and you are...

    Hmmm, I hadn't considered the "bump" in the airway thing. I am kind of with Barry on this, as there is a bump with either design, slide in or out being immaterial.

    But back to my first...

    Jake,

    So if I am seeing this correctly, the larger leg on the MTS stays the same, but the smaller leg on the slide now goes "over" the receiving piece by the 4th valve, correct? One leg goes one...

    Yes, I did have the longer tuning slide. I don't think it was damaged, it just did not quite fit into the the horn, was off just a wee, wee bit, and I did not want to force it and be out of luck and...
