  • Responsive SY1.5 Tuning Slide: Crafted from drawn yellow brass, the tuning slide contributes to the instrument's ease of playing and projection, hallmarks of the S.E. Shires craftsmanship.

  • T08MD Handslide and T08+1.5 Leadpipe: The .508-inch handslide, paired with a yellow-brass crook and the T08+1.5 leadpipe in yellow brass, offers an ideal blend of warmth and roundness with a core sound that has both sizzle and depth.
