What is it? A big tenor trombone? A small bass trombone? Who cares! This Holton TR159 does it all!
Why? Because it’s really mouthpiece sensitive. Put a 5G in it and it will work perfectly fine as a tenor trombone. Take a 1 1/2G and you can play bass trombone all day. The nice red brass bell takes care of you if you “go over the top”.
This one has seen some use as you can tell from the wear on the chrome plated slide handgrip area and the lacquer wear throughout. The valve action is ok. Slide also – could use a tune-up but absolutely playable as is.
It really is a nice player. I’m used to big bass trombones, so switching to this baby is actually easier than switching to my Bach 42.
