The Greenhoe GC5 is a true classic, designed in the style of the early to mid 20th century bass trombone. This incredibly versatile instrument excels from everything from orchestral to commercial music. Featuring a two-piece medium bell with unsoldered rim, the GC5 is incredibly responsive and vibrant.
This version of the GC5 features the Tuning-in-Slide option. This is a reintroduction of a century old approach to trombone design. This classic approach eliminates bell tuning and allows the bell section to maintain a continuously conical profile, giving it a free and even quality to the sound.
