Adams TBA2 Eb-Bb Alto Trombone

$3,572.00 $3,962.00

Item Details

This is a version of the Adams Eb alto trombone with a rotary valve to Bb for solo and orchestral use.  Based on the classic Heribert Glassl design, down even to the trim details, the Adams is improved in pitch, ergonomics, and response.  The Adams alto has become one of my favorite trombones.

    Heribert Glassl (1930-2009) 

    In this video Heribert Glassl speaks about living in the Czech Sudetenland at age fifteen and being forced back to Germany in 1946.  I visited with Herr Glassl at length and it still impresses upon me to have heard his first-hand account of the times.
