S.E. Shires Custom Tenor Trombone Series

S.E. Shires fabricates its bells, tubing, and valve sections onsite in its Massachusetts factory to exacting standards. The valve components are tested thoroughly for accurate tolerances and perfect action at every stage of manufacture. Shires draws its own slide tubes to precise tolerances, assembling them without tension, and aligning them carefully to assure smooth, trouble-free action that is second to none. This handcrafted approach to instrument construction also ensures that the sound of every S.E. Shires trombone displays incredible depth, complexity and character–giving the player an unrivaled sonic palette with which to work.

Because your physical characteristics and way of playing are as unique as your ideal sound, S.E. Shires designs trombones as a highly flexible component system. The descriptions found on this site represent general observations, which hold true for the majority of players. Components that may work well in one combination or for one player or situation may be poorly suited to others. More important than considering every possible combination is finding the combination that makes sense–and works best–for you.

Note: You will receive either 3 yellow brass leadpipes or 1 sterling silver leadpipe with this purchase. Other configurations and materials are available. Please look through our current list of Shires trombone leadpipes and let our sales staff know which you would like with your trombone.

S.E. Shires Custom Series Tenor Valve Section

Because an airtight valve is essential to quick response and centered feel in all registers--and many valve options on the market do not meet their pressure-test standards--S.E. Shires chooses to produce all of their valves in house. They thoroughly test for tight fit and perfect action at every stage of manufacture.

Large- and medium-bore tenor valve sections can be made with a choice of four different valves: the S.E. Shires rotary valve, the S.E. Shires axial-flow valve, the S.E. Shires dual-bore valve, or the S.E. Shires Tru-Bore™ valve (U.S. Patent 7112735).

Bass trombones valve sections can be made with rotary, axial flow, or Tru-Bore™ valves. S.E. Shires alto and small-bore trombones are available with the advanced rotary valve.

A gooseneck, interchangeable with the valve section, can be ordered to convert any orchestral tenor or bass trombone to a straight instrument.

S.E. Shires Custom Series Tenor Handslide

The slide tubing of S.E. Shires handslides is drawn in house, to precise tolerances. Their slides are then carefully assembled, aligned, and stress relieved to assure the smooth, trouble-free action that has become the hallmark of S.E. Shires trombones. Handslide models are specified by letters indicating instrument type (A = alto, T = tenor, B = bass) and crook width (no indication for standard, W = wide, B = bass crook), followed by bore size in inches (second two digits only), then tube material, weight, and crook material, if non-standard.
