Trying out my old King 2B

My King 2B has serial number 321xxx. According to the serial number list here, it was made between 1951 and 1952. It’s been at least 5 years since I’ve played it, and I thought I’d try it out before deciding if I should sell it. The 2B has a bore size (dual-bore .481″/.491″) that is smaller than student model trombones (.500″). Because I usually play on a King 3B and a Courtois 420BH II, I had to reacquaint myself with this horn.

Final Supermoon of 2019

I knew that the Supermoon would occur this evening, but traffic delayed me from arriving home before moonrise. When I arrived home, the moon was covered by clouds. Later, I was able to get a few shots when the clouds broke.
