S E Shires Alto Trombone Eb/Bb
The S.E. Shires Alto Trombone features a .485" bore, or .485"-.495" dual bore slide and a 7 inch bell available in a full range of options and alloys. The bell taper is designed for a true and flexible alto voice, with both focused clarity for the most delicate repertoire and enough breadth of sound for a large orchestra. The alto features a Shires rotary valve for added flexibility.
A unique feature of the Shires Alto Trombone is the tuning mechanism incorporated into the handslide. The fixed bell section maintains a continuous taper, which preserves familiar relationships between the partials. The tuning mechanism in the handslide is secure and easy to use, without adding a great deal of weight. Also, particular attention has been given to the length of the handslide, to allow full use of all seven positions.
