Overview

The S.E. Shires Custom Alto Trombone has been designed for a true and flexible alto voice, with both focused clarity for the most delicate repertoire and enough breadth of sound for the largest symphony orchestra. The unique S.E. Shires A7YLW bell combines the quick response and color of a one-piece bell with the centered feel and expansive tone of a two-piece bell. The bell's yellow brass helps it to achieve a clear, pure sound with strong fundamental, while keeping a very consistent tone color and overtone structure throughout the range of dynamics.

The S.E. Shires Custom Alto Trombone features a tuning mechanism incorporated into the handslide allowing the bell to maintain a continuous taper, giving the instrument the same superior intonation found on all S.E. Shires instruments. The tuning-in-slide mechanism is light, secure, and easy to use. Particular attention has been given to the length of the handslide, allowing full use of all seven positions.

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.
