S.E. Shires designs its line of small bore tenor trombones for players who love the flexibility and clarity of a small-bore trombone and also want a rich sound that will project well at all dynamics. The lightweight nickel-silver handslide produces brilliant, clean articulations. The yellow-brass bell presents a clear, pure sound with strong fundamental. It keeps a very consistent tone color and overtone structure throughout the range of dynamics. The unique S.E. Shires S7YLW bell combines the quick response and color of a one-piece bell with the centered feel and expansive tone of a two-piece bell.
Recognized as a leader in brass instrument design and innovation, S.E. Shires Co. sets the benchmark for blending traditional craftsmanship with high-tech consistency and precision. Shires fabricates its bells, tubing, and valve sections onsite in its Massachusetts factory to exacting standards. The valve components are tested thoroughly for accurate tolerances and perfect action at every stage of manufacture. Shires draws its own slide tubes to precise tolerances, assembling them without tension, and aligning them carefully to assure smooth, trouble-free action that is second to none. This handcrafted approach to instrument construction also ensures that the sound of every S.E. Shires trombone displays incredible depth, complexity and character-giving the player an unrivalled sonic palette with which to work. S.E. Shires makes beautiful instruments, built to last for many years. Mouthpiece and case not included.
