Get Command of the Lower Registers with the S.E. Shires TB-LS Brian Hecht "Lone Star" Model Bass Trombone with Axial-Flow F/Gb Attachment

S.E. 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.

The Lone Star Model bass trombone has developed over the course of a long relationship between Brian Hecht and S.E. Shires. The two-piece, standard weight gold brass bell produces a broad, rich sound that is very balanced and flexible throughout the range of the instrument. The axial-flow valve set sounds and feels particularly broad and even-especially when both valves are engaged-allowing for a truly open low register and contributing to the instrument’s quick, easy response. This model represents the heritage of Texas musicianship at its finest!;
