A great horn... but not the best

Comments about Getzen 3047AF Custom Series F Attachment Trombone:

I purchased this horn in 2002, and I thought I would share some insight on it. This is a great horn. I know of quite a few people that have made a career off this instrument. It has a centered sound, a great feature set, heavy materials, and excellent craftsmanship. The interchangeable leadpipes are a great way to alter the character of this horn instantly, and the Thayer Valve produces a very clear tone when active. Most serious players will be very happy with this trombone. However, I encourage anyone that is considering this horn to also look at other options as well, especially those with standard rotary valves and variations of it. While the Thayer valve does a great job of not changing the sound, the action is slow, and throw on the trigger is long. Also, when it needs to be cleaned, you have to disassemble a large portion of the bell/trigger assembly. Newer conventional rotars don't constrict the sound in open-wrap configurations, so it has almost made this type of mechanism obsolete. I owned this trombone for 12 years before I finally sold it and tested/purchased a Shires-designed Trombone with a traditional rotary valve. It isn't that this horn isn't good. It's a great horn for most people. Just make sure that if you're interested in this horn, play test it against other modern offerings and some newer designs. This is a great trombone, but it is not for everyone.

Maybe not the right horn?

Comments about Getzen 3047AF Custom Series F Attachment Trombone:

After owning one of these for 9 years and comparing it to numerous horns of the same model, I can honestly say that for the price I paid It has served me well. Unfortunately, the Getzen custom series horns are not actually as consistently made as they are said to be, nor are they really any better than the equivalent Bach Strad. I have seen some of my colleagues do very well on these horns and I have seen an equal amount struggle tremendously. Many people often end up with the red bells when they really don't need them. All of their bells are spun very thick, meaning that they can handle loud dynamics well. However, at anything less than "loud" many players struggle to produce a good sound on these horns because of the thickness and composition of the materials. If you are looking for a new horn, do a test drive of a few different ones from different manufacturers. You just might be surprised at what ACTUALLY works for you.

It does not get better than this!

Comments about Getzen 3047AF Custom Series F Attachment Trombone:

If you're looking for a horn that will last you your entire life, this is the one. The tone quality is amazing with the red brass bell. The Thayer valve has barely any resistance so when you are using it it feels like you're just playing regularly. It's amazing. Easily one of the best horns out there AND you fit the instrument to YOU personally. Anything and everything you could want in a horn this has it!

Comments about Getzen 3047AF Custom Series F Attachment Trombone:

For anyone that is not familiar with this trombone, get familiar with it! You do not know what you are missing out on. Great Sound, Very Flexible, Awesome Intonation! The folks at Getzen are as friendly as it gets, and there service is second to none. I highly recommend this horn for anyone that wants a great bone to play. If you are looking to swap bells,slides...then there are better choices out there. But, if you are ready to play, then this is the horn for you! I've had mine for 8 years, I have never wanted anything else.
