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).
The restoration work was beautifully done by Jim Huwe at Ward Brodt Music in Madison and Instrument Band Repair Specialists in Wausau, Wisconsin.

*A buddy of mine has the best slides I’ve ever experienced. He switched from Trombotine to Yamaha Slide Lubricant a few years ago and swears by it. He says it rarely needs any water and only a spritz or two when necessary. I have Trombotine and Slide ‘O Mix available as well.
