Bach Slide

whats a good trombone model for a highschooler?

i'm going into highschool next year and i play the tenor trombone

First - congrats on picking the greatest instrument of all time. No other instrument is as versatile or demanding. I have played for 23 of my 32 years and I love it.

If you're looking for something for a long term investment, then I would STRONGLY suggest going to a shop - someone who sells Besson, Bach, and Edwards primarily. Don't get a Conn or a Yamaha. But you do need to sit and play them if you can.

Where I would start is with a mouthpiece. If you don't have a new one, you should get one at this shop. I play a 1G and a 3G on my Bass Trombone. I love the large cup and bore. Most tenors get more of a 7, but play with a couple and see which one you like. The mouthpiece is actually the most important thing and if you don't have a lot of money to spend, this is the best place to invest. I have 7 mouthpieces depending on the piece I am playing and whether I am playing something written for a Bass Trombone or the 3rd trombone. Sometimes I'm asked to play 1st too, and I have to be prepared for that.

Settled on a mouthpiece, you need to play a few of them. Bring a choral (something from the etudes or a Bach choral) and a dynamic piece (like Elsa's Procession or Night on a Bald Mountain). Play for a while before you settle on your horn. Make sure the tuning slides are easy to move. Then make your purchase.

The truth is your horn will sound different when I play it and mine will sound different when you play it. That's the trouble with the Trombone - it is sensitive to the player. Find what's right for you, and don't worry about the label.

For the record - I have a Edwards Bell w/ the thayer dual valve system. The slide is from a Bach 50B Bass Trombone. I liked the Bach slide better but the Edwards bell just sung in my hands.

Happy playing!
