Hello everyone. I need to change the general pump slide and third pump with ring on the Bach Omega MG290. Is any technician aware if they are interchangeable with the Bach 180S37?

In my experience, most Omegas are built on a Strad valve section. The main difference is a 2 piece bell.

Please post picture.

I don't know if the diameter of the tubes and the center distance are the same.

A ring can be mounted on third slide. The Omega was developed as a cheaper model for students.

Good horn, used by many Latin players as it a cheaper alternative to a Strad.

I have to change the two general pump and third pump slides. I would like to know if I can buy Bach 180 37 spare parts and they are interchangeable

For the main tuning slide I bought an Omega slide that fits my strad (I'd actually bought it for a TR200 I later sold, and it fits that too).

*BUT* for the third valve slide I don't think it will fit because the tubes are even, whereas as on a 18037 the top slide is longer than the bottom one. Your pictured horn does look closer to a regular Bach so maybe it would work. Some repair places will let you return something for a modest restocking fee.

I don't know if it suits you. The prices of Bach spare parts are very high

What do you mean by pump slide? Are you talking about the dump slide on the third valve? Or do you mean the tuning slide?

Pretty sure talking about the whole third slide.

Unless you are talking about the referral to general pump slide. U have no idea what that is a reference to.

I too am confused by the term “pump”. When I read this when it was first posted I decided the OP meant piston. But the usage “general pump” doesn’t resolve well if piston is substituted.

Hopefully op will clarify, but not confident.
