    This is one of a set of three trombones made for trombonist Bart van Lier by Kuhnl & Hoyer in Markt Erlbach, Germany. The others being of .500" and .512" bore. This dual bore model is the smallest of the three. Its .480"-.488" hand slide is akin to a classic King 2B, leading to a centered tone, a clear high range, good malleability, and nice sound on a microphone. It's reminiscent of the 1940's style of trombone.

    Kuhnl & Hoyer is one of the premier brass instrument makers and these trombones are as beautiful as can be. The 480 slide hand brace is curved, adding a more comfortable grip. The hand slide action is perfectly smooth and quiet, even when clean and dry. The bell rims are left un-soldered in the style of classic Conn and Holton designs, with homage to the classic Urbie Green model. This bell style leads to a livelier response and lighter effort needed to manipulate the sound to your liking. The BLV trombones are sweet like that.
