RE: 2 quiz questions
Thank you to both of you,
I tried Bach nuts on the Conn and they are too small...I suspect size 6 something.
I like tinkering with stuff and have square 1/8' brass stock. I'll see if I'm patient enough to make a few guide bars from that..but ABS sounds easier to work with, worth looking into.
RE: B&H receiver help
Thank you for your inputs.
Barliman: I use a Giardinelli New York 6sv screw rim, my Bach is a '74 Stradivarius Lt trumpet, not a cornet ...The Sovereign is a Studio model trumpet , not a B&H sovereign cornet.
Ivan: thank you for your usual insight into trumpeter's OCD
B&H receiver help
Hi, I'm contemplating replacing the receiver on my Sovereign Studio because of the following; I have read that mouthpieces goes into those a little further. My mp sits 3/16" further in than let's say my Bach strad also. In any case the main slide sits about 5/8" + + out to be in tune. Is this cause to change it out ? if so, where would I start looking for a replacement receiver? gap on both horns look to be close with mp inserted...am I over complicating things?
