Skill Level:


Trombone Type:


This is bell flare from a Bach model 36 trombone.

This bell flare has no lacquer on it.  The solder plate where it was mounted is still evident (making it easy to mount it in the original spot for whoever remounts it (or simply heat up and wipe off  the solder, if it's made convertible.)

This flare does have some scratches on the surface of the bell, as pictured in the close ups.  It has a strong, pure, tone to it.  It is composed of yellow brass, which is thought to keep a very even and balanced tone color across the range of the instrument.  Having played this bell mounted on two different setups, I can say I enjoyed for two reasons: shape of sound (wide, but concentrated), and clarity of tone.

This would be a good alternate bell project for a (red brass) Conn 88H player, or Bach/Edwards player with a Gold Brass Bell! Also, this would be a fun candidate for a custom-built horn.  Also, it's a good candidate for a satin, or scratch-brush finish.  Also, the carrying power make it a good choice for Salsa, Funk, Theater/Shows and other idioms where acoustic carrying power is needed. 

There are no serials on bell, so I can't date it.  My hunch is that this is a late 90's or early 2000's bell.  That's just a guess, though, based on the stamping and playing characteristics.
