S.E. Shires Vintage New York Tenor Trombone with Axial-Flow F Attachment

Item #: SHIRES-TBVNYA
Price: $4,995.00
 
The S.E. Shires Vintage New York trombone is an ideal instrument for any professional musician or advanced student. Inspired by the classic New York and Mt. Vernon bells, this one-piece bell is constructed with the broader TII taper and features a large, rich, and warm sound. The yellow brass bell provides a clear, pure sound with strong fundamental, keeps a very consistent tone color and overtone structure throughout the range of dynamics. The yellow-brass ,547 bore tenor handslide with brass crook provides a broad sound and open feel. The axial-flow valve offers smooth, accurate operation combined with a broad sound and truly open low register. This instrument combines the best elements of classic New York and Mt. Vernon trombone design with the consistency, playability, and projection that has made S.E. shires trombones the favorites of professionals the world over.
