Schmelzer Model 2 Tenor Trombone


Sold Out

Item Details

The Model 2 is a beautiful tenor trombone hand built in Germany by Manfred Schmelzer.  It has gorgeous hand engraving and gold plate finish.

This is the horn for when you need a broad, sweet soloistic sound, but malleable with a light feel so it can cut when needed.  If you know the Williams style trombones from eras past, and similar designs from Zig Kanstul and Steve Shires, you'll love the Schmelzer models.

This particular Model 2 in gold plate has a weighty feel, it's smooth without much bark...a crooner horn, dark like a Bach Bill Watrous model, but with slightly more breadth and fluff.

Manfed Schmelzer has been building trombones for many years and has fans worldwide.  Doug Elliot, master mouthpiece maker and lead trombonist, has been a Schmelzer proponent, along with many others.


  • .508" bore hand slide, curved brace
  • 8" bell
  • Gold plated bell section, lacquered slide
  • SKB case


I wish I knew more about the specs and the metals, I'll ask Manfred and see.  Other bell materials or custom finish are available by special order.
