The S.E. Shires Vintage Elkhart trombone is an ideal instrument for any professional musician or advanced student. The red-brass bell with unsoldered bead is made in the fashion of classic, Elkhart bells of the mid-20th century. It produces a rich, warm sound with complex overtones and a wide palette of colors at all dynamic levels. This is combined with the ease of playing and projection for which S.E. Shires instruments are famed.
