Used Bach New York 6 Bb tenor trombone handslide, in lacquer finish. This listing is only for a handslide – it does not include a bell. Features include a .485" bore. Slide is in good condition apart from surface scratching, minor lacquer wear, and minor metal wear at the grip. This slide was likely previously relacquered. No case. This handslide is part of the Tom "Bones" Malone collection.
Here is what Bones has to say about the NY Bach 6:
"The NY Bach 6 is what I played in the Blues Brothers movie, David Letterman Show, Saturday Night Live and 1,500 recording sessions for records & movies. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Urbie Green, Bill Watrous, Jack Jenny & Jack Teagarden played the NY Bach.
The metal alloy of these pre war horns is more resonant. 72% copper, 28% zinc was Vincent Bach’s favorite alloy. The commercially available alloy was changed when World War II started because the main purpose of brass became bullet shells."
