S.E. Shires - Q30YA - Q Series Tenor Trombone

Q Series

Using the resources of S.E. Shires' parent company, the Eastman Music Company, we have been able to develop a more affordable class of professional brass instrument: the Q Series.

These instruments represent the philosophy of Eastman Music Company, to produce the finest musical instruments at every price point. Q Series are entry level professional instruments that have many of the same features as their custom counterparts. When you purchase a Q Series instrument you join the S. E. Shires family, a family which includes some of the finest professional musicians in the world.

Model TBQ30YA

A versatile large bore instrument, the Q30YA features the clarity of sound and projection for which S.E. Shires instruments are famed. The QTY bell features an 81⁄2-inch, two-piece, hand-hammered “QI” taper in yellow brass with soldered bead, giving this trombone a clear, singing tone with excellent projection and clarity. The wide, .547 bore handslide in standard weight yellow brass results in a broad sound that retains clarity, color and projection.

Paired with a nickel handslide crook, articulations are crisp and brilliant. The axial-flow valve features an extremely open low register paired with a broad, encompassing tone quality in all registers. At home in any ensemble, the Q30YA large bore trombone is an excellent choice for any trombonist.
