Trombone slides can be difficult to set straight. The underlying principles is that a slide needs to be free of corrosion/grime, geometry needs to be parallel, and tubes need to be dent free, round and straight. The principles are straight forward, but it has taken years of practice and experience to deliver consistent first-class results.
Tools include a dead flat granite stone, 34 different sized precision machined slide mandrels, a plethora of burnishing tools and custom jigs to achieve quality results to name a few. But it is the skill of the technician that accomplishes lasting results.
