USED INSTRUMENTS FOR SALE
Earl Williams Model 6 trombone made in Los Angeles
Los Angeles Williams 6 .500 bore trombone in excellent original condition. No dents anywhere. Has its original lacquer (or what's left of it). Finish is worn and tarnished, but I did not want to change anything because this one plays like a dream - beautiful dark, rich sound. Slide action is a 10 out of 10. It does have a very small spot of chrome wear on one of the stockings which doesn't affect the slide action one bit. Original curled waterkey. No case. $3500.
Conn Elkhart 6H trombone
Completely refurbished. Lacquer is 100%. Has the bronze outer slide tubes. Great playing horn. Original case. Slide is 9 out of 10.
King 3B Silversonic trombone
Excellent condition. Ready to take to a gig. Comes in an older style ProTec case. $1700.
Giardinelli tenor sackbut
Like new condition. Yellow brass and nickel silver construction. Slide inners are unplated nickel silver. Slide action is surprisingly good. It's very playable. The sound is solid and consistent in all ranges. It's not the most authentic sackbut reproduction out there, but I wouldn't hesitate to use it on a gig. $800.
F cimbasso by Schoenbach
Antique rotary valve bass trombone in F. It has been modified with curved receiver tubes for an upright cimbasso configuration. It fits nicely on the chair between the player's legs. It had 3 valves originally. A 4th rotary valve has been added that lowers the pitch by a 4th. I would guess this to be early 20th century Eastern European make. This is not a modern cimbasso. The bore size is smaller than a present-day bass trombone. There are a few spots that were patched where the tubing had small cracks in it. It takes a regular large-shank trombone mouthpiece. $1200.
Bach 50B2 bass trombone modified by Larry Minick SOLD
Late 1980s vintage. Serial number 887**
Gold brass bell, lightweight nickel slide
Custom open wrap D-valve and original linkage by Minick
This one is a real player. Beautiful warm sound and very responsive feel. Nice open blow in valve register. Excellent condition with just a few normal scratches that you'd expect on a vintage instrument. Slide and valves work perfectly. Original case in great condition except handle is taped where it started to come apart. $3500.
