S.E. Shires Custom Series TW25-T47 Tenor Trombone Handslide (Demo)

$1,390.00 $1,251.00


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.

This handslide is in perfect playing condition but has a few scratches consistent with having been on display in show rooms or conventions for a couple of months. A great value!

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.
