Model TBCH-Chicago Model Tenor Trombone 

The S.E. Shires Chicago model trombone was designed with the famed Chicago low brass sound in mind. The one-piece, gold-brass bell with a large TII taper produces a rich, broad, complex sound that allows for a wide range of colors at different dynamics. The lightweight nickel-silver handslide produces clear, brilliant articulations. With this instrument, S.E. Shires has created a trombone that plays with incredible stability, and produces a consistent timbre and even response throughout a wide spectrum of range and dynamic—an instrument that captures the best qualities of the Chicago low brass sound.
