S.E. Shires TBQ36YA Bass Trombone: Mastery in Depth and Versatility

Introducing the S.E. Shires TBQ36YA Bass Trombone, a paragon of the bass trombone world, designed to fulfill the needs of the most discerning musicians. Known for its unparalleled clarity of sound and projection, the Q36YA combines S.E. Shires' renowned craftsmanship with innovative design to create an instrument that excels in any ensemble setting.

Key Features:

  • QYB Bell: The centerpiece of this trombone's remarkable sound is the 9½-inch, two-piece, hand-hammered “QII” taper bell in lightweight yellow brass. This design choice ensures a clear, singing tone that boasts excellent projection and clarity, complemented by a rich, deep low register and a broad overall sound.

  • Expansive Handslide: Featuring a .562-inch, standard-weight yellow brass handslide with a nickel-silver crook, the Q36YA offers a sound that is expansive yet retains every bit of its clarity, color, and projection, making every note resonate with purpose.

  • Axial-Flow Valves: The independent F/G♭ axial-flow valves provide a feeling of breadth and evenness across all registers, particularly shining when both valves are engaged for an exceptionally open low register. This valve system enhances the instrument's flexibility, allowing musicians to explore a wider range of valve and slide positions.

  • Interchangeable Leadpipes: With three interchangeable yellow brass leadpipes included, players have the ability to customize the trombone's response and feel to suit their individual playing style, further highlighting the instrument's adaptability.

  • Artistic Engravings: Adorned with the S.E. Shires maker's mark and a traditional floral pattern, the TBQ36YA is as visually stunning as it is sonically impressive, reflecting its artisanal quality and the excellence of its craftsmanship.

Versatile Performance: The TBQ36YA is a master of versatility, ready to anchor the low end in symphonic settings, add depth to jazz ensembles, or provide the foundation in commercial music. Its design ensures it is equally adept at blending seamlessly within a section as it is standing out as a solo instrument.

Complete Package: This bass trombone comes with a Q Series bass case, mouthpiece, and care kit, ensuring that musicians have everything they need to maintain the instrument in optimal condition, whether at home, in the studio, or on stage.

The S.E. Shires TBQ36YA Bass Trombone is not just an instrument; it's a beacon of musical expression, offering players the depth, clarity, and versatility needed to elevate their performance. Whether you're a seasoned professional or an advancing student, the TBQ36YA represents the pinnacle of bass trombone design and performance, promising to be an invaluable addition to your musical journey.
