Gorgeous King 2B Silversonic trombone with a solid sterling silver bell, made in 1993, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the King company.
This 2B has a special engraving, no gold wash inside the bell flare and a commemorative case. A 1921 Conn 12H, has a .547" wide slide with tuning in the slide, piston F attachment. Its stunning how well this instrument plays, the slide is all original and works great. Beautiful satin silver finish, gold inside the bell. This is a unique horn and, while not for everyone, would be the gem of a collection and you can use it!
Its also very lightweight which is unusual for 78H trombones which tend to be on the burlier side. This is a 80H New York Symphony model made in the 1920s. Has a .525" slide with tuning in the slide and a rotary valve F attachment.
Its spent its whole career with a professional trombonist and while it shows some use, its in great shape. I can't say enough good things about this instrument.
This is an early one (you can tell as the valve is stamped "thayer" and not "edwards") likely from the late 1990s, when Edwards was at their peak and pretty much every orchestra was using them.
It may not be the most exciting instrument these days but these horns are still very good and very solid.
It's a beautiful 9" Mt Vernon 45 yellow brass bell and tuning slide.
We paired a Brassark seamed yellow brass Elk 8H leadpipe with it.The sound is huge but crystal clear, vibrant, colorful, dense and brilliant.It's not for the faint of heart, this trombone doesn't sugarcoat things, but it does give you exactly what you put into it.They have the ideal blend of vintage and modern traits and I think are the pinnacle of what makes a Conn trombone great.This particular instrument is no exception, a true player.
