    Greetings, I was searching for a new tuning slide for my horn because in a very unfotunate accident it got a little banged up. I can't find anyone selling a tr200 tuning slide in silver so I thought of getting a strad tuning slide because those are easy to find, but I'm not sure the slide would fit. Thanks, Joe.

    A good brass repair tech can probably fix the one you have. Brass is pretty forgiving and can be massaged back into shape.

    +1 it will probably be cheaper than you expect

    Even if it fit, it was never designed for that horn. I agree that a tech should look at it.

    Strad slides are pretty exclusive to the Strad horns. The odds of it fitting properly are somewhere between nil and none.

    Yep, get what you've got fixed properly and you'll be good to go. :thumbsup:
