Pros: Clear bright sound
Cons: Slide positions not correct from about a fourth above A-440. Case glue causes lacquer to fall off.

Good instrument for orchestral work and for first bone in brass bands. Needs a very good ear, because slide positions above concert-D in the upper register are not 'correct'. That D has to be played in fourth position tp be in tune, whilst the G above that needs to be a (very) short-second, etc. etc. Bottom register difficult to manage without a LOT of practice.

The glue used in the case in the 1980s causes the lacquer on the slide (in particular) to fall off. Once you can see it happening, it is too late - if it hasn't happened and you have one of the old brown cases with brown 'fur' lining, change it!

Cons: The Bach Leadpipes

I have played the 36 for 10 years now and love the horn. I have two now , a 1976 converted 36B ( It`s now a straight 36) with the standard weight slide and a Mount Vernon 36 with an after market light weight slide. Both Horns are incredible !!! The only down side is the Bach Leadpipe. Way too costrictive for me. In the `76 36 I have an Edwards T2 leadpipe. Plays very free and very Dark. This horn is a really really dark instrument. On the Mt. Vernon I bought a leadpipe from the Brasslab in NYC. This is by far the best playing horn I have ever had in my hands. I use these for everything I do. Classical, jazz, R&B/Soul, and it always comes thru with a beautiful sound and great upper range.
I recommend these to my students all the time.
