    Hi, I got a friend who is looking for some info on this G Trombone.

    I haven't got a serial number as yet but I will ask for it.

    There is a decorative piece on the tuning slide that is engraved "Arnold Myers"

    Any info available before I can get hold of the serial number?

    Arnold Myers is the curator of the Edinburgh University Collection of Historical Musical Instruments:

    He's a very thorough man when it comes to old brass instruments.

    Just spoke with Derek Roebuck EX G Trom Brighouse and he estimates the date of this instrument at about 1920...he has bought and swapped several instruments with Arnold Myers over the years.
