The THEIN Bass Trombone “Universal” Dependent model has been continuously developed together with Zachary Bond (Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts) since 2010. Our idea was to combine the THEIN-Sound with the easy playability of the American trombone construction.
The dependent valves give the musician while playing the easy feeling of a tenor trombone with a quart valve. Therefore the THEIN Bass Trombone “Universal” Dependent model is often played by Wechselposaunisten.
Zack Bond: „I have never played another instrument that was so dynamic, responsive and colorful“.
