Model 1585 Bb/F/Gb/D Double Bass Trombone
For the player who prefers tradition, the Model 1585 bass trombone offers traditional in-bell tuning and a symphony-worthy sound.
This professional instrument includes a 9 1/2″ diameter one piece yellow brass bell, wide hand slide built with our own lightweight nickel slide sleeves and three removable mouthpipes. Dual full bore CR rotors feature a resonant lightweight design, and have a very short throw. These open-feel valves are placed in-line on the neckpipe and do not affect the low range response. This inline setup gives the most technical options – always a plus for the soloist and commercial player. The distinctive wrap allows maximum neck clearance and optimum balance, while the medium radius crooks and extra bracing improve tonal center and response. Both trigger paddles are adjustable. Included are three removable mouthpipes.
