Got a new horn today, a Holton Collegiate. It's around 80 years old, with silver plating. Small bore, tiny ass bell. The slide has some wear and rough spots, and one tube on the inner slide needed resoldered. The silver has tarnished to black in spots. Very few dents, except for a large one on the tuning slide. The tone is extremely weak in the lower range, due to small bell. The high range is fantastic, especially above C.

How much did you pay?

My uncle was using it as a decoration because the slide was stuck, so nothing. He helped me fix it and let me take it becuase he doesn't play anymore.

That's good, cause I lied about the trumpet and I actually do play sax (Eb alto to be specific)

Used to play tenor and bass trombone. I prefer bass trombone, dat low and mellow tone. But that's a nice horn, you should get the tuning slide fixed up, that shit kills your intonation.

I've never had the lungs for a bass, thanks to asthma. I've screwed around with a Conn 11OH, but that's still fairly small for a bass trombone.

I collapsed a lung my freshman year of high school. I played bass trombone and tuba that year. I dropped tuba, played bass trombone one more year and then switched to upright bass/bass guitar indefinitely. to hell with that

Right on! I have a 1952 Olds Ambassador in near perfect (though extremely tarnished) condition. The tarnish is a plus, patina is my thing. Taking delivery of this thing next week

I wanna be singer for the Pit Ska band. Their voices sound like they all get free whiskey on tour.

As a fellow tromboner, I have to say that is a damn nice horn.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

I'm happy for you
instruments are cool
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
