Here’s the next one in the series: “can you find this for me?”. A King 4B tenor trombone in really nice condition!
Have a look at all the distinctive details the King 4B features! The bent cross brace, the under the thumb trigger, the finger ring on the slide etc etc. By the way, if you have small hands and are looking for a comfortable to hold large bore tenor, this may fit you very well!
This one has gotten to me all the way from the US and will be sent to it’s new happy owner in Germany tomorrow.

Together with Jay Friedman Bach developed this tenor trombone model around a lightweight 42G bell, a thayer valve and a .562 slide. Basically it’s a light gold brass bell with a bass trombone slide. Perfect if you are looking for that big orchestral sound. Keep away if you struggle with efficiency though, the .562 slide needs a lot of air!
This one is in nice condition. Lacquer is 99% intact. A tiny dent on the slide bow. Valve and slide are fast and quiet.
For all those guys looking for that elusive Corporation 42G, here’s something event better! A 2011 Greenhoe Bach 42G bell section with a nickel lightweight slide from the Corporation era. Comes with two tuning slides for the F valve: The original in yellow brass and one made by Matthias Hölle made in red brass. This horn plays! Classic Bach 42 sound with the playability of a modern valve.
Yes. 2011 means original Greenhoe. Not Greenhoe by Schilke.
Holy moly this is a flexible trombone! Got a symphony gig and a Salsa band on the same day? This horn will do it all.
The 745G gold brass bell gives this trombone a nice, warm sound. It can be really dark if you want it to but also let’s you color the sound however you want. It just does what you want. The Rotax valve is fast and quiet. Don’t need the valve? No problem, switch to the straight gooseneck. AND the .525/.547 slide comes with a small shank and a large shank leadpipe. I used this as a quintet horn, 2nd trombone in a british style brass band, first in wind orchestra, some jazz… you name it.
Quite a lot of lacquer wear and scratches throughout, but no big dents. Slide, tuning slides and valve are fast. It doesn’t look good, but it still has a lot of music in it. I nearly kept this one for myself…
