This is our only small bore trombone in red brass, and it is quite distinctive. The 3 leadpipes make a significant change in the response of the instrument, making it easy to tailor to your playing style. The red brass sound is warmer than the yellow brass versions, but the horn is still light enough to respond quickly and project well. An interesting detail is that bell section is made entirely of brass, without nickel trim as on the hand slide.
All Getzen Custom Series Trombones are based on the best designs from the Getzen ProShop. Custom Series Trombones are designed to offer players the ability to choose between different bells and leadpipes. This allows the player to customize their trombone to deliver the desired sound and response. Custom Series Trombones are ideal for college music majors and top professional trombonists.
