S.E. Shires - George Curran Artist Model Bass Trombone with Axial Flow F/Gb Attachment

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.

George Curran Artist Model Bass Trombone with Axial Flow 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 instrument’s quick, easy response. This model represents an ideal realization of the heroic New York low brass sound.
