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…
