S.E. Shires Q35 Alto Trombone
The Q35 Alto trombone features a two-piece yellow brass bell with bell tuning, which combines a clear and colorful tone with the quick response and centered feel of a two-piece bell. The lightweight dual-bore yellow brass handslide in .485-.495 bore produces a rich, clear sound with complex overtones and a wide palette of colors at all dynamic levels. 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 Q35 is an excellent choice for musicians searching for a nimble and light quality instrument suitable for solo works and small ensemble performances.
