S.E. Shires Colin Williams Tenor Trombone with Rotary Valve F Attachment

The Colin Williams Artist Model tenor trombone has developed over the course of the artist’s long relationship with Stephen Shires and S.E. Shires instruments. The two-piece, lightweight yellow-brass bell responds easily and produces a broad sound. The harmonic content of the sound warms up evenly at strong dynamic levels without becoming edgy. These characteristics are reinforced by the efficient and responsive yellow-brass handslide with wide crook. The 2SS leadpipe played by Mr. Williams further clarifies the sound’s harmonic profile, while the gold-brass tuning slide brings added warmth. This model represents an ideal realization of the heroic New York low brass sound.

“I love this instrument, I know that I can rely on my Shires for everything I need to do. It has let me take risks and find my voice, and I’ve never been happier playing!” —Colin Williams, Trombone, New York Philharmonic

Shires is in the process of transitioning to Shires-branded Marcus Bonna cases throughout 2021. The case you receive may be different from the one pictured here. Please contact us if you have a case preference.
