The Mount Vernon Bach Stradivarius Model 36B trombone is a classic vintage medium bore trombone with an F attachment. Medium bore F attachment trombones are a great tool to have in your collection because of their versatility. With a deeper mouthpiece, this horn is great for playing orchestral principal gigs; with a more efficient mouthpiece, it's a wonderful big band section horn. It's a great option for the freelancer, or anyone who enjoys playing a wide variety of musical styles.
This is a pre-owned trombone so there are some signs of use, and there have been a few repairs. There's a small patch on the hand slide crook, and some slide work has been done as well. The slide feels quite good. A slide swab rod is included. The bell has some mute pings, and it looks like there may have been some dent/crease work done. We also had the valve mechanism worked on a bit, and a screw replaced in the cap. The valve has good compression. There's some cosmetic darkening of the lacquer in several spots, and some light acid bleed at many of the solder joints.
Overall, this is a great American-made trombone from the golden era of Bach manufacturing. Give us a call with any questions!
Model 36: Medium bore slide (0.525″) with large bore bell. For the first trombone work in large symphony or concert orchestras. Remarkable high register so essential for modern symphony work. Beautiful, broad and sonorous tone, full of life. Abundant tone-volume and carrying power. No risk of over blowing this instrument as there is no player with sufficient power to reach the limit of its fortissimo.
Model 36B: Model 36 with F valve. For 1st and 2nd trombone work in large symphony, opera, or concert orchestras or band. Identical bore (0.525″) and construction as the previous model, but with a rotary valve. By using the “F” valve, the entire chromatic scale down to the pedal notes can be played. “F” valve valve slide can be pulled out to “E”.
