I have to say this is one of the most comfortable trombones I have ever played! The bell brace goes under your thumb so it basically acts like a bullet brace, add to that the Williams style slide brace and you have a very ergonomic design.
Gold brass bell, yellow brass valve section and nickel slide. It plays very easily with a big round sound. It makes me think of a good Conn 88H.
This one is in really good condition. There is some really slight lacquer wear, but besides that, it looks really good. The valve and slide action are excellent.

Roy Lawler is building trombones since 35 years and all his horns are made by him from start to finish. His shop is very much like a brass pro shop of the past. No computerized machines. All hands on manual machines as well as hand picked sheet brass make for a vintage sounding trombone but with modern intonation and feel for a quick response with great fluid slurs. The hand slide is all hand built to exacting standards for a smooth light action.
This particular horn is a Lawler Big Boy .525 medium bore trombone from the 1990’s, built in Longwood FL. It features 8.5″ yellow brass bell, a nickel handslide with interchangeable leadpipes, oversleeves and a yellow brass crook. I particularly like the look of the Williams style hand grip.
The lacquer shows some signs of wear, but otherwise it is in great condition. Slide action is great. A very versatile and fun horn to play!
