This horn has served me faithfully for over 3 years and I would buy it again if I could. For someone who doesn't have the cash to purchase a separate jazz and orchestral trombone, this is a good choice. Blends well with the orchestra, serves particularly well in latin big band charts. Just like any horn, it takes a bit of work to figure out where it resonates well, but those sweet spots were surprisingly easy to find on this horn. I've even used it for solo work, although I certainly would opt for a different horn if that's your main area of playing. I plan on purchasing a BAC Kansas City horn for jazz/commercial/some orchestral solo work now that I've come into my own a bit, but this ax will always have a place by my side. My one gripe is that the case becomes exceedingly uncomfortable to carry around (15 minute walk across campus for lessons), and a serious player would probably buy an aftermarket case anyway.
I've been playing trombone for 7 years now, and I've had this bone for a little over one. This is my second trombone and my first large bore. I have found that after you adjust to the large bore differences, it is very easy to hit high notes (high Bb comes out very easily) and the low tones are very rich and full. All around GREAT HORN!!!! Last week, I won some money in a solo competition with this horn. love every minute of playing it.
I love my King 2104, this trombone has a bigger bore than the average tenor trombones like the bach 42, though i believe it projects much louder. It has a great tone and a warm sound. I would'nt actually recommend this trombone for jazz, though it is great for concerts in a band that plays classical music. I mean from the bach 42 i played compared to this trombone, It's AWSOME. If your thinking of going professional or taking your trombone skillz to a higher level, this is the trombone. Though if your much of a jazz player than rather a classical player, go for the simple straight trombone. (without trigger) It doesnt matter much if you have the trigger or not.... Though in general this is a great trombone, thinking of buying a trombone, stick with this and it will help you through your journey of trombonism. GOOD LUCK!
I've been playing a 4B for about 9 months now. What has impressed me so much about this horn is the response, intonation, projection, and easy high register. I have played it with large shank mouthpieces as small as a Schilke 47 and as large as a Marcellus (Bach 5-ish). It is an incredibly colorful and adaptable horn as much as its smaller 3B sibling. No fear bringing it to a jazz gig. Once the snobs get over the fact that you aren't playing a small bore from 40 years ago, and listen to the music that comes out of the 4B, they'll have to be impressed. LOTS of sound, but it doesn't feel like work! Very open but controllable. I've played Kings almost exclusively since the 1970's and this is my favorite of all.
I really love this horn. I have a 70's horn, just as many others that have written have had, so mine has a yellow brass bell. I use this as my primary horn, it is a bigger version of the 2B. The bore taper and metals make this a bright and articulant horn. The larger bore size makes it able to play louder without blasting. The range is just as good if not better than the 2b. This is one large bore that you don't have to worry about playing lead in jazz band on, it can handle it. The sound is brighter than but just as full as the Bach 42. It is more flexible than the 88h. The King 4B is probrably the most underrated horn on the market.
