Seller: canzona_brass (250) 100%, Location: Baltimore, Maryland, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 323532491251 Here for sale, a Holton TR-650 "Collegiate" Tenor Trombone, in Bb/G. This horn is a little bit of an oddity. Rather than the F-attachment found on many tenor trombones, it features instead a G-attachment. So instead of getting an F below the staff, C in the staff, etc., in first position with the trigger activated, you get a G, B-natural, and so on up that partial series. It makes for some interesting alternate position possibilities. There are some trombonists who are big boosters of the use of a G-attachment, but it's a feature normally only seen on bespoke instruments or an aftermarket customization. The TR-650 is the only off-the shelf model that has this feature that I am aware of (there may be a few others). I believe this was considered an intermediate or "step-up" horn at the time it was produced. That said, I find the thing plays very well, and if nothing else, it would be an interested choice for maybe a jazz player who likes a smaller horn, but does some in-the-staff playing. I'm not sure of the exact size, but it's definitely a small or medium-small bore instrument. I found another source selling one (for $895!) who claimed it had a .495 bore and 7.5 inch bell. The 7.5 inch bell is certainly correct, and the .495 bore definitely could be, it plays like a horn of about that size, but I can't confirm. As far as condition, the slide works great, as do the tuning slides and the rotor. There are no significant dents, though the bell does show evidence of a crease having been rolled out at some time in the past. There is a patch on the throat of the bell just underneath the main tuning slide, which I have shown in the last picture. It appears to have been very well done. Lacquer has some wear, but it mostly still present. Overall in excellent shape, and includes its original hard case. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me! Shipping is free, and I offer 30 day returns, so buy with confidence! Condition: Used, Condition: Mechanical condition is excellent, on hand slide, tuning slides, and rotor. Cosmetic condition is very good, with no significant dents, some lacquer wear., Brand: Holton, For Instrument: Trombones, Type: Tenor, Model: TR-650 Collegiate, Finish: Lacquered, Key: Bb/G, Bell Material: Yellow Brass, Skill Level: Intermediate, Country/Region of Manufacture: United States
