Great for travelers.

The Ralph Sauer Artist Trombone was developed through a close collaboration between Ralph Sauer and the craftsmen of S. E. Shires. The resulting instrument includes several specific design elements not found on any other S.E. Shires trombone. The screw-bell collar enhances projection and allows for use of a flat case that fits easily into overhead compartments on smaller aircraft. A new, smaller diameter, rotary valve is fast and lightweight without reducing the internal bore size. Its dual-bore slide (.525""-.547"") produces a large-bore sound with a medium-bore effort, while the available .547"" single-bore slide lends a more open feel. For the standard .525""-.547"" handslide, leadpipes are available for both large and small shank mouthpieces. The Ralph Sauer Artist trombone includes a case.
