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!
