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 bass crook provides a broad sound and open feel. 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.
