George Curran Artist Model BassÂ Trombone with Axial FlowÂ F/Gb Attachment
The George Curran Artist Model bass trombone has developed over the course of the artist's long relationship with Stephen Shires and S.E. Shires instruments. The two-piece, standard weight yellow brass bell produces a warm sound with a prominent fundamental harmonic, combining quick response with a centered feel and expansive tone.
The lightweight 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 instrumentâ€™s quick, easy response. This model represents an ideal realization of the heroic New York low brass sound.
