Thein has been making fine brass instruments in Bremen since the 1970s. Many of their trombones are used all over the world and Thein is regarded as one of the best makers anywhere. Mostly known for their traditional German trombones.
I feel incredibly lucky to be able to present you two Thein trombones handpicked at the factory by a Thein artist. That way you know you will be getting some of the best parts Thein makes.
One of those two trombones is this really nice Thein Universal alto trombone in like new condition. It is literally like new as it sat in its case since purchase as a backup horn! The bell is in gold brass with a nickel silver slide. The Universal model was created to offer another option more familiar to players who use American made trombones. A top of the notch alto with this incredibly beautiful sound Thein’s are known for.
Here is an alto trombone you won’t find that often. A Yamaha Custom YSL-871. The Yamaha Custom line was established well before the Xeno line, and this is not one of the Xeno models. This one must have been made in the 1970’s or 1980’s.
There is a scar on the bell from a removed dent, but other than that it is in pretty great condition. This is one of the easiest playing alto trombones I have ever played!
In 2009 Edwards came out with the Edwards T396-A wich they developed with start trombonist Joseph Alessi. It features a yellow brass bell with a gold brass slide. The slide crook is yellow brass and the main tuning slide is gold brass. A nice mix of gold and yellow brass that gives this trombone a clear sound but always with some warmth.
The Rotax valve is absolutely stunning and the harmonic bridge allows you to alter the playing feel to your likings.
This one is in great shape. It has been bought in 2018, played for 5 months and then put away. There is some lacquer wear on slide, but besides that, the trombone is in immaculate condition. Of course, all the harmonic pillars are still there, so you can tinker with the harmonic bridge. This is the first T396-A I ever played, but I can say that it is a great horn. Really even sound through all registers and in all dynamics. Great orchestral trombone.
Sold without case.
