S.E. Shires - Colin Williams Artist Model Bb/F Tenor Trombone

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.

Colin Williams Artist Model Tenor Trombone with Rotary F Attachment

The Colin Williams Artist Model tenor trombone has developed over the course of the artist's long relationship with Stephen Shires and S.E. Shires instruments. The two-piece, lightweight yellow-brass bell responds easily and produces a broad sound. The harmonic content of the sound warms up evenly at strong dynamic levels without becoming edgy. These characteristics are reinforced by the efficient and responsive yellow-brass handslide with wide crook.

The2SS leadpipe played by Mr. Williams further clarifies the sound's harmonic profile, while the gold-brass tuning slide brings added warmth. This model represents an ideal realization of the heroic New York low brass sound.
