From my email today



I just bought a New York Bach 6ii trombone and am seeking more information on it. The bell says

Stradivarius
Model 6ii

Vincent Bach
425
New York, USA

the serial number on the top of the slide reads "1865 model 8"

Is there anything you can tell me about this horn?

The 1865 serial number is form the period of 1940-1941, and the model 6ii was a common model trombone. Medium Bore slide (0.485") with a medium bore bell. There were actually 7 variations on the model 6. These variants were different combinations of tuning slide, tuning slide tubes, and the bell size. These were labeled as follows on the bell:
6
6II
6III
6IV - More Common
6IV/V
6VI
6VII - More Common


The slide for your trombone is from a model 8 which was a Medium Bore slide (0.490"), a fraction larger than the model "6" with a medium bore bell slightly larger than the model "6" bell.
Of similar construction to the previous model, with a fuller and more mellow tone. For theatre and concert orchestras and full sized dance bands.
