I like my Urbie Green Martin, and I think Martin is making them again.
It is fairly light, I like the tone and it has held up well to me
beating on it.

Hi everyone,

This question is directed to the trombone players.  It's time for me to
a new horn, but because I've, literally, played the same King student
for 25 years, I've really got no idea what to look for.  I'm curious as
what trombone models  you've played professionally and why.  When I
started thinking about a new horn a couple of years back, I was looking
the King 2B and 3B models.  At $1500 though, I'm wondering if they sell
more because of the hype of the so-called "jazz trombone" and if they're
really worth it.  I'm looking for a straight tenor trombone with no F
attachment, and one that I can, hopefully, produce a fuller tone on.  I
haven't been happy with my tone lately, and part of that is my horn
which is
falling apart (getting air loss).  I'm not a very loud player to begin
and I'm looking for a horn that may help add some bite and volume as
Curious also about bore size; I play a very small bore horn now.  Does
size automatically impact the fullness of tone??

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

All the best,

Rob McCallum
