Comments about Bach 42 Stradivarius Series Trombone:
I picked up trombone fall of last year so I could play in my school's jazz band (my main instrument is euphonium). Initially I was given an old King 606 to play on, which was fine, but I wanted something better, so at the end of the school year last year my band director gave me one of these to use. It is very old, but it still performs well. Being a large bore it requires a lot of air for big band charts (especially since I play lead), but if you have enough air then don't be afraid to use one of these in a jazz band. I also use this in my school's orchestra, and it does a fine job there too, except it actually feels too bright in that setting, probably because I normally play euph. At least we're playing jazzy music so it fits. Overall, if you have good lung capacity and are looking for something to play in the big band and in concert band or orchestra, I'd consider this. I didn't give this five stars because it doesn't have an F attachment, and I never really got to experience it in its intended role, which is a dark, symphonic trombone, not a jazz bone.
