The THEIN Bass Trombone in Bb/F/ Gb “Old German Style” was developed with Jay Friedman (Chicago Symphony Orchestra) as part of the project “Old German Style, Alto, Tenor, Bass Trombone”. A historical “Kruspe” tenor trombone in brass without tuning slide and without valve served as a template.
This instrument is our “most German” THEIN bass trombone in terms of sound and playability. The German slide positions have been adapted to the modern slide positions.
A real, romantic bass trombone.
The sound is rich in overtones and vocal with an earthy touch.
