The Greenhoe GC4 is the classic American style large bore tenor trombone in its most elegant and refined form. Featuring an ultra-respponsive two-piece bell with unsoldered rim, the GC4 incorporates the character and finesse of the classic trombones designed in the early to mid 20th century.
This version of the GC4 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.
