The Joseph Alessi Q Series Alto Trombone has been crafted with Mr. Alessi to offer an exceptional instrument at an affordable price. Similarly to his other Artist models, this instrument features a revolutionary combination of materials and construction to produce the perfect balance of color, efficiency, and resonance. The Q Alessi Alto bell features a two-piece, medium-weight yellow brass bell with bell tuning, which allows this instrument to easily project while maintaining a broad and warm sound.  The newly designed bell tuning system allows the player to produce a compact and lively sound with a weight distribution more akin to a tenor trombone. The gold brass handslide with yellow brass crook in .485-.495 dual bore produces a rich, clear sound with complex overtones and a wide palette of colors at all dynamic levels.  The Joseph Alessi Q Series Alto Trombone offers the ultimate versatility for any musician looking to be a cut above the rest.

  • QAlessi Alto bell: 6.5-inch, two-piece, hand-hammered bell in medium-weight yellow brass with traditionally brazed seams, unsoldered bead, and bell tuning
  • QAlessi Alto handslide: .485-.495-inch dual bore, gold brass; yellow-brass crook
  • Bell engraving: S.E. Shires makers mark, Alessi model designation, and traditional floral pattern
  • Includes Q Series trombone case, mouthpiece, and care kit

“I’m very excited about the Alessi Q Series Alto Trombone which we’ve tested.  This instrument features unique parts that are not found anywhere else.  It is a wonderful professional line instrument at an affordable price!”


Joseph Alessi, Principal Trombone, New York Philharmonic
