Comments about Blessing BTB-88-O Trombone:
Absolutely fantastic instrument! Got the silver Blessing BTB-88-O as a Christmas gift from my wife after having pined for this horn for about two years. Valve action is smooth and responsive, the .547" bore allows for very smooth, full tones even at lower ranges, and the slide action is acceptable and getting smoother with break-in time.
Coming from my original King 606 this is a world of difference, especially on the lower ranges as the Blessing sounds cleaner on the lower tones. One very minor drawback is that until your chops are built up, higher notes will be more difficult to produce (ie. F above high Bb on the King translates roughly to a squeaky high Bb on the Blessing). Overall, its a great horn and has a very smooth tone quality.
