comment What should I look for when buying a used trombone?
A good mouthpiece is always handy. Instruments generally come with a "stock" mouthpiece. But sometimes you can find people selling their instruments with a quality one in the case. As a woodwind player, I know that very very often a good mouthpiece can outweigh the quality of the instrument. Not sure if this is true for brass, but it's certainly something to look into.

I don't much have an answer to your question because I'm not a trombonist, but one thing I would suggest is finding a trombonist or trombone teacher in your area who can help you look at instruments. You'd have to pay them for their time, but their expertise will ensure you get the best instrument for your money.

comment Best way to notationally indicate that a solo phrase in an instrumental section should end
@Smovies, yes, when "tutti" is written in a part, and especially after the "solo" indication, it means for the entire section to enter.
