Hello, I am the original owner of a King Duo Gravis Bass trombone and am wanting to sell this horn for the simple reason that it is no longer being used.I used this horn in concert, jazz, and one or two marching seasons while I was enrolled in college. I purchased this horn in the spring of 1975 and played it until the fall of 1976. My younger brother played it during the spring of his senior year of high school in the jazz ensemble in 1977. Since that time the horn has not been played on a regular basis, except when I would take it out and make myself light-headed after not playing it in a while. The horn is in what I would consider very good condition. It has a small dent on the bell, some minor discoloring of the lacquer finish in two or three spots. I have had the horn checked recently by the music store that I bought it from and eveything checked ok. Anyone that is interested in this horn can e-mail me for price and pictures.
I have a silver-bell King 6B Duo Gravis (circa 1980) w/ two valves for sale in great shape that I'd like to sell. It's a great horn but I'd like something lighter. If you like, please propose an offer. I will reply with pictures.
I played it the last weekend. Both the slide and valves are working perfectly.
This is a large-bore horn that produces a huge volume of sound! (i.e. Your lung capacity is required!) This horn has a bright, loud sound.
It comes with the optional F attachment. The three tuning slides slide like butter... they move smoothly.
