WTB: Martin Recording bell

Postby YORK-aholic » Sat Sep 02, 2017 11:22 am

I'm looking for a recording bell for a Martin Mammoth.

Condition isn't super important (within playable limits).

If someone has a tenon for the same bell, I'd be interested in one of those as well.

Thank you.

I have a Martin Mammoth with a recording bell, and I've been wanting to get an upright bell for it. Would you be interested in a trade? I assume you have an upright bell?

Well, that won't work, as I have a Martin carcass without a bell at all!

Thanks anyway...

I assume you bought one of the two Marin bodies that were on eBay recently?

Sorry to hear that! I was thinking it was a perfect trade for a second.

I'll take your recording bell off you anyway. :mrgreen:

Only if you buy the rest of the horn with it ;) I'll be posting it in the "for sale" section within the next week or two after I've cleaned it and re-aligned the valves!

I thought hard on those two, also. Did you get the straight one or the one with a slightly squished stack? If/when you get a bell, either one should be a player.

I took the first one (slightly squished stack). Not a big issue, the rest of the body is in very good shape and it has the original receiver.
