S.E. Shires - Q36YR - Q Series Bb/F/Gb/D Bass 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 TBQ36YR

A versatile bass trombone, the Q36YR feature the clarity of sound and projection for which S.E. Shires instruments are famed. The QYB bell features an 9 1⁄2-inch, two-piece, hand-hammered “QII” taper in yellow brass with soldered bead, giving this trombone a clear, singing tone with excellent projection and clarity with a full, deep low register and broad sound.

The wide, .562 bore handslide in standard weight yellow brass results in a broad sound that retains clarity, color and projection. The nickel handslide crook gives crispness and brilliance to the articulations. The independent rotary valves retain focus throughout all registers without sacrificing comfort or clarity in the valve register. This independent valve system allows fore more flexibility of choice in valve and slide position choices. At home in any ensemble, the Q36YR bass trombone is an excellent choices for any situation.
