Slide models are specified by bore size and crook design. All of the slide tubing is drawn in house to precision tolerances. The slide is then carefully assembled, aligned, and stress relieved to assure a smooth, trouble-free action.
Single bore slides: clear sound, can be more articulate than dual bore.
Slides with no other markings are standard weight, with a nickel crook, yellow brass tubes, and nickel sleeves. Other options are available, described below:
T47 = .547 bore tenor slide with tenor crook: centered sound and feel
T25 = .525 bore tenor slide
