This instrument is part of the Tom "Bones" Malone collection. Bones had played the bell of this very instrument on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Here is what Bones has to say about NY Bach trombones:
"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."
