    Bit of a trombone question.

    I have been asked to sell some of our old band instruments on ebay. we have been successful so far but we have half of a trombone that i have been asked questions about and i can't answer one of them, i was wondering if any of you can help.
    The trombone is the bell section of a besson, and the number (i'm guessing it's te serial number) is 942- EXP. Does anyone know what the EXP means?

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Does it not stand for Experimental - e.g. it is a prototype besson? the number stands for the Besson Model number, it is a 942 trombone, I used to own a 940.

    There was a Baritone on Ebay about 2 years ago that was a Prototype 956, and it had a name like EXP 3 or something...

    Could it simply mean that it was manufactured as an 'export' model? :confused:

    Does it mean that it will explode if played incorrectly?

    I'll just get my coat!:oops:

    My googling turned up zilch on this one, but someone on the trombone forum might have a clue if you posted there
