Shires Independent Trubore Bass trombone

.562 Independent trubore trombone Bb/F/Gb or 1/4G

Horn plays great. Some custom work on the it.

Bach 50 bell with Shires connectors and a satin finish. Since it has Shires connectors, you could put a shires bell on it if you like. Rotors work as good as new and blow freely with a short quiet throw. When open, the valve is almost a straight shot so the open horn is very free blowing and responsive. I had the valve warp for the second valve repaired due to a tuning problem from the factory. Currently it will come with a Gb slide for the second valve. I also have a quarter tone G tuning slide for it(Bollinger tuning). I plan on keeping the short slide but if you are interested, let me know and we can work something out.

Sold with old style lightweight Shires case which is basically a slightly cheaper made version of a Marcus Bonna case

New they go for about $5,295 and about $300 for the case.
