Brian Hecht "Lone Star" Artist Model Bass Trombone with Axial Flow F/Gb Attachment

The Lone Star Model bass trombone has developed over the course of a long relationship between Brian Hecht and S.E. Shires.  The two-piece, medium weight yellow brass bell produces a broad, rich sound that is very balanced and flexible throughout the range of the instrument. 

The axial-flow valve set sounds and feels particularly broad and even-especially when both valves are engaged-allowing for a truly open low register and contributing to the instrument’s quick, easy response. This model represents the heritage of Texas musicianship at it's finest!
