I've heard the Bach 34 was made to copy the Conn 78H. The 34 had a .522 bore (instead of the bach .525), and had a more rounded shaped tuning slide and slide bow. I've played Bach trombones for 40+ years and had never heard of the 34 until Hornguys.com had a used one for sale a couple of years ago that was owned by Byron Peebles, retired principal trombonist of the LA Phil. I'd love to try one some day.
