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 standard rotary valve retains focus throughout all registers without sacrificing comfort in the valve register. The Q30YR features a two-piece, hand-hammered yellow brass bell with our axial-flow valve, which gives the trombone a clear, singing tone with a more open and broad tonal quality. It is a versatile large bore instrument, it features a 8 1/2-inch 'QTY' bell made up of a two-piece, hand-hammered 'QI' 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.
At home in any ensemble, the Q30YR large bore trombone is an excellent choice for any trombonist. The Q30YR trombone is also compatible with the rest of the S.E. Shires Custom Series trombones so if you want to extend your options you can also insert a custom part, ie; bell, tuning slide, slide. The world is your oyster with the Shires Q Series!
