It’s been years since I’ve played on my King 2B, so I’ve been contemplating whether or not I should sell it. It is definitely a vintage horn, made in 1951 or 1952, but they are still made today. It has a much smaller bore size than a student model tenor trombone. I played it at rehearsal, and I was way out of tune with my slide positions when we started. I usually play a 3B. — Visit my website for information on the trombone and what I use to make these videos. — #trombone
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.
