Shires has made a name for themselves as one of the top outfits for brass instruments. This Shires Custom Bass trombone is no exception to this reputation. Featuring a BII7YM Bell, Tru-Bore Independent Valves, with yellow brass slide and valve section, this horn is reminiscent of the "Chicago" sound. For jazz players, this is an ideal horn for big band work, as the True Bore valves allow for comfortable plunger and clear-tone mute work. The valve linkage is tight, precise and lightning fast.
You are hard pressed to find a nicer bass trombone on the market today.
