Hi

Someone is selling a 72* L bore in my area (paris, france), 3××××× serial, and it seem to be gold plated, but the seller doesn't know for sure... I can't see well on the pictures.
Did anyone played a similar horn ?
I off course know the ML 72* , and usually like it but find it a little tight, that's why this L bore could match !

I mostly play small jazz group, solo and experimental music.

I would appreciate any informations, thanks !!

depends on the leadpipe

I have mainly seen L bores with the 25 pipe, and ML bores with the 43 pipe. Not exclusively though.

The L bore 72 with the 25 pipe plays smaller that the ML with 43 pipe.

I like the L bore with 25 pipe. I actually like the ML with 25 pipe too.

Most players who play 72 bell have the ML bore with 43 pipe. That is a standard combo for a reason.

The 72 25 L bore is a good feeling horn. A bit bigger feeling than the 25 bell 25 pipe L bore, which is also a nice combination. All of these are quite different from the 37 25 ML standard feel.

If the horn is really in your area you need to get to try it out. That will answer your questions better than anyone here can. A couple of hours driving to go try a horn is worth it.

Thanks for your reply !
The leadpipe is #43.
Also, the 2 stems (brasses?) normaly situated on the tuning slide were removed, or never have been built in the first place, there is no sign of work here.
I wonder wich impact could it have on the sound.

I am agree trying is always better, but the guy is like 500 miles away from my place so I have to consider a shipping..
So I have to buy it to try it !
I curious if someone had tried this particular configuration, it s the firs time I see an "72 L" engraving with the star bell, it must be pretty rare ?

A large bore 72* with a 43 pikpe will play VERY open for you. Having the tuning slide braces removed will also let the horn ring a little more. Think perhaps along the lines of a Yamaha LA, or other horns of that nature. (even though the LA has a brace on the slide)

Sounds like a neat instrument! Good luck.

I know a little more about this horn, it s actually gold plated by the factory, custom ordered by the buyer, and he asked bach to not built the 2 brasses on the tuning slide.
I finally bought it, and will be able to tell more about the sound when I'll get it.
Have a nice day everyone !

By the way, not to criticize, but it's "braces". Bon chance and enjoy. Let us know how it turns out.

About 30 years ago, I owned a 72*/43 large bore, with the two braces on the leadpipe / main tuning slide removed. It also had a tuning bell conversion, so there were no bell to leadpipe braces. It was in raw brass. (This is how the horn was when I acquired it.) It took a bit of effort to play, but what a beautiful lush sound!

I don't remember what I traded it off for, but I have often wanted to find another one that played like it. Great horn!

Thank you for correcting me "braces" off course my mistake
By the way, It 'arrived today !!
I played for an 1h this morning, it's just the best Bach I've never own !!
Open but not too much, beautiful bach sound, very good compression, it seems to be almost new, with a nice gold lacquer with no loss, what can I tell, just the best deal of my life !!
Thanks to everyone for your replies, and have a nice day all of you !
