The Joseph Alessi Artist Model tenor trombone is the result of experimenting further than Shires ever has before. A revolutionary combination of materials and construction, this instrument embodies a perfect balance of color, efficiency, and resonance. The unsoldered, two-piece, light-weight yellow-brass bell allows the Alessi model to effortlessly cut through any ensemble while maintaining a mature width of sound that holds together even with the most extreme demands of the repertoire. A gold brass F-attachment slide on the newly designed Alessi rotary valve brings forth depth and density of sound coupled with the clarity and stability of a rotary valve which works in tandem with a gold flanged tuning slide. The Alessi handslide utilizes a combination of different alloys to not only bring consistency and clarity to this model, but also to allow for the flexibility to change style and mood at the player’s will. This exquisite combination offers the ultimate versatility for any musician looking to be a cut above the rest.

“After rigorous testing I have found an instrument that is easier to play and also fits the sound concept in my mind. That sound has been embodied in the S.E. Shires Joseph Alessi Artist Model Trombone.”

Joseph Alessi, Principal Trombone, New York Philharmonic
