Pics of Mosconi's Rambows and Balabushkas - 03-27-2020, 06:17 AM

I've been searching the internet for pics of Mosconi's Rambow and Balabushka cues. I can't find anything reliable since there are so many tributes and replicas.

In fact, there is a thread here on AZ where a guy commissioned a cue builder to make a tribute Balabushka cue. He sent the cue builder a pic of an Adams and got a tribute of an Adams cue.

I don't want that to happen if I commission a cue builder for a Rambow or Balabushka tribute.

Thanks guys.

On May 14 2011 there was an auction of Willie Mosconi's personal billiard items conducted by Hunt Auctions. They produced a detailed photo catalog for that auction. There are several detailed pics of Willie's cues in that catalog. Perhaps you can find one on the internet for sale or contact Hunt Auctions in Pennsylvania to get a copy from May 14,2011 in hard copy or on the internet. www.huntauctions.com

That was the result of a complete know-it-all designing his own cue. If you are insufferable like him, you probably won't be capable or working with other people. Frankly, the irony is delightful.

If you are interested in doing research, you'll get lots of information. A large group of people on this site have a TON of knowledge. Send a PM if you need any focused information.

I don't know him personally but I understand where you are coming from. Only person that says I am insufferable is my wife so I don't take it serious. Lol

I've had a few cues made for me, Tascarella, Black, Gilbert, and got along with them great.

I am definitely interested in research and I'll continue to dig until I get somewhere. This is already a great start thanks to all that have contributed!

Yeah I couldn't believe it either. In the end he was happy with how his cue turned out so that's cool. Funny thing for me is I have that same exact Adams cue and I couldn't believe it when I saw it. Anyway like I said he was happy so no worries.

I'm trying to do a Rambow or maybe Balabushka tribute cue, and want to make sure I am using the right pics of one of Mosconi's Rambows or Balabushkas.

I know some people don't like tributes and say they are not original designs. I really love the traditional look of those cues so I see no harm in having a cue builder make something similar. Plus if I were to get an original Rambow or Balabushka for one they are expensive and for two they don't play as well as modern cues.

Anyway like I said I appreciate all your guys insight and help.

After watching that YouTube video of Denny Glenn's collection does anyone know how to get a hold of him through email?

This is supposedly the last one he made. https://forums.azbilliards.com/showp...60&postcount=1

Whoops not Mosconi’s but, still a nice picture.

These are probably the best pictures of Mosconi's Bushka you'll see. Believe they took place right before or during the Hunt Auction.

All the best,

Don't know if you saw this cue for sale- https://forums.azbilliards.com/showt...45#post6609645 Bob Owen is highly regarded cuemaker. I'm a big fan of this design. Good luck.

I have no affiliation with the seller.


Playing Cue: Ray Weeks Slowhand Cues
J/B: Ray Weeks Slowhand Cues
Other cues: Some of old Palmers, Scruggs, Sugartree, Onley
