S.E. Shires Artist Model Trombones

Over the years, Steve Shires has had the privilege of working with some of the world's top brass players to design instruments. Our Artist Models allow you to purchase these same custom configurations for yourself.

Blair Bollinger Arist Model Bass Trombone

The Blair Bollinger Model Bass Trombone was developed through a close collaboration among Blair Bollinger, Steve Shires, and the craftsmen of S. E. Shires. The resulting instrument is genuinely unique and includes several specific design elements not found on any other S.E. Shires trombone. The Bollinger Tuning System facilities playing scales and arpeggios with the smallest number of handslide positions possible. 

The weighted mouthpipe collar, custom-weight dual-bore handslide, and unique tuning slide provide quick response and clear articulations.  Complimented by the yellow-brass Bollinger bell, this instrument produces a broad orchestral sound with unparalleled response and quality.
