While most trombones contain two triggers, it's often recommended that younger beginners start with a single trigger bass trombone since they're easier to play and a lot lighter when compared to a double trigger model. Of course, many veteran players use them as well - in fact, a single trigger model can easily handle most of an orchestral repertoire just fine. With a quick browse through this selection, you'll see that many of the world's top brass instrument makers offer high-quality single trigger bass trombones, including Kanstul, Amati and Holton.
Whether you're a newcomer to the instrument or a veteran of the stage, this section features many impressive models to suit every budget and skill level. To start things off, take a look at the Bach 50B Series Professional Bass Trombone. Made to the same specifications that were originally developed by Mr. Vincent Bach himself, this Bb/F trombone comes standard with a 9.5" yellow brass bell and its exceptional tone makes it ideal for ensembles.
Conn is another respected name in the world of brass instruments, and their 110H Series Bass Trombone is a gorgeous model with a generous price tag. Sporting a lacquer finish and boasting a .562" bore, 10" rose brass bell and a single rotor F attachment with standard wrap, this trombone has the projection and resonance to make any performance stand out. It also comes with a case and mouthpiece, making this option perfect for any aspiring trombonist who wants to start their musical journey immediately.
By now you've probably realized that this is the place to be for a single trigger bass trombone that can be enjoyed for many years to come. From brass quintets and jazz ensembles to concert and big bands, the bass trombone's full, deep tone is an essential ingredient in many different musical applications, and learning one is both challenging and a lot of fun.
