It makes a great big sound but retains the clear and clean character that really helps set players enhance their performance.
If you're considering this instrument, you already know what it is I don't need to add a lot of flowery language.
Features a 2 piece red brass bell, thayer valve, wide orchestral weight slide. The bell is raw brass, I stripped it myself when I started college at USC, as all the cool kids had raw brass bells.
If I didn't own so many, I'd probably keep it but it should be passed on to the next player who deserves it and maybe in 20 more years it'll come into the shop again! Stunning vintage .547" large tenor trombone made by Yamaha in 1987 for their centennial anniversary.
Many of these instruments are well over k now, this Yamaha is a top tier professional level geyer style horn in the same league but half the price of some of the boutique makers. 00 Beautiful and rare Conn 70H bass trombone from the 1920s, with optional E rotary switch valve.
It is in very excellent used condition, raw brass, no dents or major cosmetic blems. This isn't a "Fuchs" Model but the standard smaller throated 70H. Tuning in the slide with opera wheel tuning system, beautiful yellow brass with flat wrap F attachment.
Players are snatching these up because they work fantastically well, both for auditions and at work in the orchestra.
This model is marketed as a "Thor" like instrument (it is a 5/4 CC), and that isn't an overstatement.
Its spent most of its life here in Los Angeles and has many years of use left. A unique opportunity to own one of the early custom made instruments by Marc L'Anglier.
