Notice too that the bell begins to add the 'brassy' sound. It has a 10" bell, .565" bore slide with dependent F and flat E .585" bore valves. It's an older model, not to be confused with the new model G-10, this horn is probably about 20 years old. This alto trombone is a new model from Thein which is based on a pre-WW1 Kruspe that they have restored and carefully updated, but kept the beautiful visual and sonic features of the original, and it plays every bit as good as it looks.

Dry the brass with a dry cloth or allow it to air dry. The choruses of the priests in Magic Flute owe much to this convention. Tuning system developed with the assistance of Paul Pollard (Metropolitan Opera Orchestra). It has a hand hammered and honed bell (the hammer marks are cleary visible in the dark patina on the inside of the bell (dark from the fabrication process and gorgeous). I've not seen this before and the only reason I speculate that it is original is because of the stamped oversleeves which have matching serial numbers (photo 8).

It has the standard Shires rotary valve, a open ported rotor that blows even on both sides of the horn as well as having fast short action.

In 15th century, the slide trumpet was altered into the S-shaped “shakbusse” or “sackbut,” (probably derived from the Old French words for “push-pull”) with a double-slide mechanism on the tubing, making it the Renaissance-era father to the trombone. Their scales and chords had half-sharpened fourths and sixths.
