Determining the value of an Atmos Clock depends on the model, age and the over-all condition of the clock and the actual value can vary significantly depending on what the market will bare at that particular time. Atmos clocks with Oriental Motif Cases white or black plexi-glass , the Gruen wood case models or any other models with rare and unique cases will obviously be worth more then the types described above, depending on their condition. Most Atmos clocks are “graded” by using the following guidelines: Excellent Condition – Clock runs perfectly, the finish is bright and clear with only a few minor hairline scratches that are noticeable only at close inspection.

MINT Condition – Clock runs perfectly; case is in perfect condition, no fading and no highline scratches-even at very close inspection; often original box, packing material and documentation included.

Click on a box to sort the full inventory of instruments available by category Today’s Featured Horns Getzen Custom Model AFR Trombone I must admit, this is not a normal Getzen to me, it holds a special place in my heart this is actually my first professional trombone that my parents bought for me in at Zeps Music in Burbank. Oh the things I promised my parents to get them to purchase this trombone for me its something I will never forget, and actually a memory I still recall when I have young students come into my shop to purchase a new trombone with their parents.

I got into college on this trombone and played some of my most memorable performances in my young career on it. I sold this trombone in in order to fund my first Conn 88H after I fell in love with the Conn sound. It’s been well loved since then, serving its second owner well, who recently traded it in here at The Brass Ark to get something newer. So again, for the second time in my life, I offer my original professional trombone for sale.

Features a 2 piece red brass bell, thayer valve, wide orchestral weight slide. Threaded leadpipe receiver, with one leadpipe. The bell is raw brass, I stripped it myself when I started college at USC, as all the cool kids had raw brass bells. Still in very good condition, some normal wear on the neckpipe and slide from contact. I had a blow on it for old time sake and it is still a very nice trombone. If I didn’t own so many, I’d probably keep it but it should be passed on to the next player who deserves it and maybe in 20 more years it’ll come into the shop again!

History[ edit ] Although forms of brass have been in use since prehistory , [39] its true nature as a copper-zinc alloy was not understood until the post medieval period because the zinc vapor which reacted with copper to make brass was not recognised as a metal. Many have similar tin contents to contemporary bronze artefacts and it is possible that some copper-zinc alloys were accidental and perhaps not even distinguished from copper.

There is good archaeological evidence for this process and crucibles used to produce brass by cementation have been found on Roman period sites including Xanten [66] and Nidda [67] in Germany , Lyon in France [68] and at a number of sites in Britain. The fabric of these crucibles is porous, probably designed to prevent a buildup of pressure, and many have small holes in the lids which may be designed to release pressure [68] or to add additional zinc minerals near the end of the process.

Dioscorides mentioned that zinc minerals were used for both the working and finishing of brass, perhaps suggesting secondary additions. These places would remain important centres of brass making throughout the medieval period, [82] especially Dinant. Brass objects are still collectively known as dinanterie in French.

A cartridge is a type of pre-assembled firearm ammunition packaging a projectile (bullet, shots or slug), a propellant substance (usually either smokeless powder or black powder) and an ignition device within a metallic, paper or plastic case that is precisely made to fit within the barrel chamber of a breechloading gun, for the practical purpose of convenient transportation and handling.

It is a model GC R, which is bell tuning and has a two piece red brass bell. In excellent lightly used condition. A small crease has been rolled out of the bell rim. Plays excellent, comes with a deluxe hard case. When I started taking trombone lessons with Byron, this was the trombone that was in his case, the one I saw on the stage of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

Byron acquired this Conn 88h from Larry Minick when Larry called him and said “there is a fellow here in my shop selling an 88h and I think you better drive down here right now and buy it from him” true story. This is absolutely one of the best Conn 88Hs I’ve ever played. The articulations are so pure and the sound is so focused and impactful it sounds just like Byron did.

Obviously, it is well used, the lacquer is worn and the instrument remained out on a trombone stand starting when Byron retired. Subsequently, it has developed an amazing patina that I think is super cool. This horn tells a story. I sincerely hope the next owner will go on to have an amazing career on it just like Byron did.

The first date codes, found for example on the Vacumatics, consists of two digits, the first one denoting the quarter of production, the second denoting the production year.

Hence a “47” marking on a ‘s pen indicate that the pen was produced in the fourth quarter of , not , which is a common misconception. In the second quarter of this system was however changed to save production time, and a new date code, using a system of dots, was adopted. The stamp initially had three dots and for each quarter one dot was filed down leaving none for the fourth quarter. Since production was overlapping examples exist with either the imprint 28 or.

Also, since this coding system extended over a decade, a pen marked 38 could be produced the third quarter either in or In a new system for the date coding was introduced where the two digits only indicated the year, not the quarter hence “50” means made in , this system was used in the US until and in Canada a few years longer..
