S.E. Shires TBGC George Curran Artist Model Bass Trombone: A Masterpiece of Sound and Craftsmanship

Introducing the S.E. Shires TBGC George Curran Artist Model Bass Trombone, a pinnacle of musical artistry and craftsmanship developed through the close collaboration between George Curran and the expert craftspeople at S.E. Shires. This bass trombone embodies the essence of the heroic New York low brass sound, offering an exceptional instrument that meets the rigorous demands of professional musicians.

Exceptional Design for Superior Performance:

  • GC Bell: The 9.5-inch, two-piece, hand-hammered, custom-annealed "BII" taper bell is crafted from standard weight yellow brass. This design produces a warm, rich sound with a prominent fundamental harmonic. The bell's traditionally brazed seam and soldered bead enhance its quick response and centered feel, ensuring an expansive and resonant tone.

  • Lightweight Axial-Flow Valves: The independent S.E. Shires F/G♭ axial-flow valves in a lightweight valve section provide a broad and even sound, especially when both valves are engaged. This configuration allows for an open low register and contributes to the instrument's quick, easy response, making it a joy to play across all ranges.

  • BYC Tuning Slide: Featuring a "C" taper, drawn from yellow brass, the BYC tuning slide enhances the trombone's resonance and tonal consistency, ensuring a seamless transition between notes and registers.

  • B62-78 Dual-Bore Handslide: The .562-.578-inch dual-bore handslide, constructed from standard-weight yellow brass with a nickel-silver wide crook, offers precise control and a smooth playing experience. This design supports the instrument's overall tonal richness and clarity.

Custom Features for the Discerning Musician:

  • Interchangeable Leadpipes: The trombone includes three interchangeable yellow-brass leadpipes, allowing players to customize the instrument's response and feel to suit their personal playing style and preferences.

  • Artistic Engraving: The bell is adorned with the S.E. Shires George Curran model custom engraving, adding a touch of elegance and signifying the instrument's elite craftsmanship.
