Using the resources of S.E. Shires' parent company, the Eastman Music Company, Shires have been able to develop a more affordable class of professional brass instrument, it is called the Q Series.
Q Series are entry level professional instruments that have many of the same features as their custom counterparts. When you purchase a Q Series instrument you join the S. E. Shires family, a family which includes some of the finest professional musicians in the world.
The Q36YR features an independent double traditional rotor valve section, which gives the trombone a clear, singing tone with an articulate and broad tonal quality. It is a versatile large bore instrument, the Q36YR features a 9 1/2-inch 'QBY' bell made up of a two-piece, hand-hammered 'QII' taper in yellow brass with soldered bead, giving this trombone excellent projection and clarity. Paired with a nickel slide crook, articulation is crisp and brilliant.
Accompanying the 'QBY' Bell is the ever so perfect match with the 'Q62' hand-slide, wiht the .562 large bore. The use of yellow brass with a nickel silver crook makes for a robust yet accurate slide.
At home at the bottom of any trombone section, the Q36YR large bore trombone is an excellent choice for any bass trombonist looking to advance their tonal frequencies. The Q series trombones are also compatible with the rest of the S.E. Shires Custom Series trombone parts, so if you want to extend your options you can also insert a custom part, ie; bell, tuning slide, hand-slide.
When purchasing through The Music Place you can rest assured knowing all new instruments we sell are professionally set up by our in house technicians. Each instrument comes with a FREE* standard Instrument service within 12 months of purchase.
