I`m just wondering..... I play a Bach (E96525) and some of my friends play Jupiters, Kings and others... Can anyone tell me which is best to play?

Never ever play a jupiter. A king is ok for a "pea shooter" (one without a rotary valve) but i would recommend either a getzen or edwards. theyre kinda expensive, but you could get them used and they would still be better than a king or jupiter. and dont buy a holton either. Good luck and trombone was an excellent choice in instruments. Id love to talk to you so email me and ill give you my aim sn!

Kings are good for marching trombones. Half of my section has just a plain old regular king for marching band. For concert band or full orchestra, I prefer Bach. I have a Bach 32B open wrap. And most of the other trombone players at my school either own or yearn for a Bach. so good choice! Keep up with the trombone cuz it rox! e-mail me if ya wanna talk!
your fellow t-bone

I am a junior in high school and i used a King model beginner bone until my freshman year. If you are looking for a plain old horn for either a younger player or a jazz player i suggest it. However, if you are to strong a player you may have a tough time keeping a good tone at a quality forte` as well as the lower register expecially petals. For concet and if you are willing to for marching play i suggest a Bach Stradivarius. I have a 42B horn and i love it. If you are only using the horn for concert play i would use an open wrap for sure. But for someone who wants to use it for marching as well i would say the traditional wrap. The open wrap is much more succetible to being hit or getting in the was as well as being much more difficult to fix. Good luck finding a quality horn.

Yeah kings are ok. Jupiters aren`t that great. Bach is one of the best brands. When I get a new trombone I eather get Bach, Conn, Edwards, or Holton.

It really depends on what type of music you are going to be playing also. when I was playing more legit stuff in school I had a 42b with an F rotor.

Now I am playing all club gigs so I use a bach 36 and I also use my bach 12 on these gigs from time to time.

As stated before Getzen and Edwards are great legit horns.

And if I havne`t clouded this issue up for you enough you should try out an older King 3b

bach strads are nice, but watch out for regular bachs. they tend to be really out of tune so always warm up and tune prior to like class and stuff or just practicing

Getzen and Edwards are the best. Bach stinkd because its takes forever to make and the company needes new management. I once ordered a mouthpiece from them and it took so lonk I cancled my order.

i own a conn constilation and it is, in my own opinion, one of the best non-trigger trombones... i have seen some web sites that even approve of the constilation being top notch. the one i own has a silver bell and a rose brass slide it has a soft mellow tone for concert and has a certin kick in marching< be careful here > in most cases any tombone is good even the italian ones, witch i heard kick but, are good. just stay away from the asian built ones... even if it looks nice they, for the most part, are poorly made :-) have fun looking for a sweet trombone

BACH SUCKS!!!!!! Get either a Conn 88HTO or a Conn 88HTO-CL. Make sure you get one with a rose brass bell though. Bach`s bells don`t resinate well enough and the metal they make them out of is too thick for a good vibrating tone. The Conn is a MUCH better choice. Also, Schilke Mouthpieces are they way to go.

I play an old bach from the 60`s. It was my dad`s trombone. Never really investigated exactly what model it is. I should take a look.

Hello all,
I`ve been playing straight tenor for 23 years, a Conn student model for the first 4, then I bought an Olds "Recording", from when they made them in Fullerton, CA in the seventies. I`ve been stuck on the Olds for years, but today`s Olds aren`t the same. I just got a DEG Quadro trombone for fun. The slide is bent in half and half as long. All the positions are half-positions. I haven`t received it via Fedex yet. Here`s a link to a photo of it, if you want to check it out:
I`m in the market for a good horn now. Looks like Conn is the way to go. Thanks for your input.

Re: Which brand is best ??    18:07 on Thursday, December 18, 2003
Well, im a junior and for the last three years ive been playing a Getzen, and i have been VERY pleased with the performance and sound that my horn provides, with or without thayer valves, i recommend you look into Getzen... other than that, go with Conn.

I find it hideous that musicians would waste time discussing the "best brand of trombone". I play my trombone and, frankly, do it better than anyone else. The brand of my horn doesn`t matter. Maybe you`ll think of this while playing on that old piece of.

Until Next time,
Mr. Greene

Mr. Greene,
You`re wrong and pretty vain. Although I had that attitude in Jr. High years ago. A couple decades later, I find that the more I play, the more I find I can improve.
Brand does matter. Ability is important, but quality makes a lot of difference as well.
