YEB 321S or Boosey/Besson 15' Bell Eflat

Postby bigboymusic » Fri Jun 15, 2018 3:13 pm

This worked like a charm the last couple times, so here we go again...

If any of you have one of these in good shape that you aren't in a hurry to sell, keep me in mind come middle of September. I'll have a yearly payment coming in then, and that is the horn I'll need for some solo and quintet stuff come winter. I'm looking at 2500 or under.... Pretty reasonable for those types of horn... Just make sure the horn isn't 'hot' (ask Bloke about that one)

If you have a 381S - even better... Would rather non-comp it...

not to throw cold water on the 381S idea...but (only to inform...) I have finally spent some quality time with one of those...
The 5th valve (dependent) loop (as supplied from the factory) was/is NOT long enough to play low Ab with 5-4, so I had to lengthen the 5th loop in order to make the instrument usable (to me) and sellable (to the person who purchased it from me.

I just know that I Really would like the low E... there is enough lit that will have the occasional E, and there is no false tone on the 321 (with me anyways). I like the low range on the 321 better than the small Bessons...
