It has taken me 6 months to finally do this but I'm putting the best Trombone I've ever played up for sale..... Mick built a prototype for a scandanavian professional on request with slide tuning, this one was number 2!!! I'm a bass trombone player and when I last visited the Rath factory to have my bass serviced I was asked to try a new prototype (at the time) and sweet je**s it totally blew me away and I ended up taking it with the intention of doing more tenor work but unfortunately it never materialised!! I played it occasionally at home when I was not busy on bass. Better than ANY Conn 88H Elkhart I've ever played!!! The harmonics slot so much better with the J-bend compared to a regular tuning crook. High range is phenomenal, the only instrument I've hit a high F (bass clef) on. Specs: *Red brass bell *Red brass J bend (where tuning slide on regular Trombone resides!) *Bronze slide with tuning (slight weight penalty compared to regular slide but well worth it!) *Rotax valve *Standard 5 brass leadpipe with extra 5B included. Serious bidders only..... Email me if interested and we'll take it from there regarding pictures etc. This is a top class instrument that has had very little use since initial purchase in April 2013 and the asking price will reflect as such!! List price with Rath is 3800 GBP including options and extra leadpipe. No case included, mouthpiece idem dito!! Regards Neil.
