Here’s a super clean straight Corporation Bach 42. Not a lot to say about it. It is in great condition and play really well. Serial number puts it in about 1973. The slide is really smooth, it has some lacquer wear and some tiny red points on the slide outer, nothing to be worried about for a horn of this vintage. The bell section has one small scar on the flare, besides that it is pristine. No dings or dents on the tuning slide or on the slide crook.
Now here is something you don’t see every day! This is a Kruspe trombone – probably model Penzel – from before 1918 in excellent condition! It is made of yellow brass and has a large bore – similar to a modern Bach 42. The bell features a wide Kranz and is approximately 9.5 inches wide. The engraving says “Ed. Kruspe, Hoflieferant”. The inner slide seems to be original, but chrome plated afterwards.
For an instrument of this age, it is in exceptional condition. No dings, no dents, not even scratches. I suspect it hasn’t been played in a long time as the slide is quite scratchy as of now. But it gets better day by day.
