Vintage Reynolds bass trombones are really special. They look beautiful and play superbly. There is a lot of information about Reynolds trombones at Contempora Corner (contemporacorner.com). I have more pictures if you’re interested.
The restoration work was beautifully done by Corky Cain and Jim Huwe.
Note: This instrument has not been customized. It does not have a slide lock which is the original design.
Cashier’s check is preferred. I can also take PayPal.
I’m listing this instrument as a favor to Jim, a good buddy of mine. Jim just wants to find it a good home.
The instrument and case are both used.
