This Eastman ETB828 professional Bb/F trombone plays amazingly with great ease. With the acquisition of S.E. Shires, a USA manufacturer of some of the best brass instruments around, Andreas Eastman have managed to incorporate some of the design features into their trombones.
The integration of the two brand start in the 500 series trombone but become truly evident in the 800 series trombones. All of the design features you find in the S.E. Shires custom trombones come through in this ETB828, with traditional rotors and the hand-spun two piece, yellow brass detachable bell. In fact the bell can be exchanged for a Shires custom bell if you want to mix up the sound. Also the yellow brass slide with a nickel silver crook as the material used, this not only strengthens the slide but adds incredible response and character to the overall sound.
These are just a couple of things that make this trombone a contender in the profession league, and this is proven by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO) 1st & 2nd trombonists where using these trombones in performances.
With all this said the trombone itself is very affordable and a great investment.
