I began playing the trombone at 12 years of age
with an olds student horn and at 18 traded it in for
a brand new king 3b and 45 years later has never
failed me the horn has never been in the shop the
slide has the crome in tact a little worn in the 7th
postion but but even then there is no friction the
secret is before I put on the cream I rub the stocks
up and down till there hot and apply the cream it
gets into the pours of the slide for smoother work
manship I done many solos across Florida, played
for word of life in New York and many others
places in the south and has never let me down
and still playing solos today.
I've had my Blessing B88-O for a year and love it...but the King is a monster! My bro started playing trombone for jazz band (baritone player) and since I'm off at college we needed another horn for him to play, so we got this one. I never realized I could shake walls with a horn before...and keep intonation. The slide is the best slide I have ever felt, you just have to be very careful to not over grease the slide or it will stick, it's that close of a fit. Properly lubed, it is frictionless. This horn also makes for effortless lip slurs. My only peeve with it is the bell/slide bolt comes from the slide and my hand sometimes knocks it loose while playing. Also, its not that it doesn't blend easily, but it is easy to blast out your section with it if you aren't paying attention. Oh yea, and the tuning slide is rather tight, but not stuck, just takes pressure.
I used to play on a Bach LT16M. Don't get me wrong, it's a great horn, but I didn't realize what I was missing until I broke the Bach and had to borrow a friends' King 3B for rehearsals while it was getting fixed. The 3B has the versatility to pop out low notes, while still being able to soar through the upper register where the Bach got cloudy and resistant. Double High F's are a cinch. With such an easy-blowing horn it is incredibly easy to float on top of the section, or bury the whole band, if you're so inclined ;) I had tried a 2B Plus, and felt like I was blowing through a straw into a soda and making bubbles, but with the larger bore of the 3B, you can darken your sound in section playing. But the part I like best is how easy it is to get the perfect laser-beam lead trombone sound i've spent years trying to obtain.
As with another review, I too used the Bach LT16M for 20 years for jazz and dance band. Upon reading some discussions and reviews of the 2103 3B, I tried this horn and decided to change trombones. I found the 2103 3B easier to control in the high register, easier to control dynamically and easier playing lip trills. But most importantly, the tone was sweeter and less focused yeilding a warmer timbre. This enables me to blend better in a jazz sectional yet I can still project forcefully during solos.
I am a 78 year old piano tuner who plays trombone any chance I get. I owned a Conn 88H for a number of years, but did not ever get that good feeling of accomplishment with it. I managed to get by with student grade horns and antiques for a number of years, but always wanted to get a "really good" horn. After much research, I decided there is only one way to decide which horn fits me. I went to a music store where they had a number of professional grade horns to try them all. The 3B was actually last on my list to try, but the minute I ran the scale down to low F, I knew this was the horn. It is a sweet sounding horn in the highest register and a really mellow low tone horn. I am very happy with the King 7c mouthpiece, although I am also using a Schilke 47 with nearly equal tone and range. I would recommend that anyone in the market for an instrument with easy range and great tone coupled with a velvet smooth slide consider this horn.
