“The team at S.E. Shires has developed the finest trombone that I’ve ever played! This horn has incredible response and the special “ring” that I’ve been searching for in a small horn. No matter what setting or venue I’m playing in I can feel the instrument’s presence from my side of the bell. I’m extremely proud to have my name on this horn created with such incredible craftsmanship.”
