The 1588 is a professional tenor trombone made by Kanstul in Anaheim, California. Based on a vintage favorite designed by the great Emory Remington, the model 1588 large bore tenor trombone was developed for players who wanted a lighter, centered, soloistic trombone with fast response.
With the full bore .562" CR rotary valve and a light, one piece hand hammered bronze bell carefully matched with a bronze tuning slide and hand slide, the 1588 offers a malleable tone, providing the working player and soloist with an instrument which allows your distinctive style to project effortlessly.
The hand slide is slightly narrower than on the similar Kanstul 1570, allowing for a more comfortable grip for those players with medium size hands. Kanstul has also improved the response of the hand slide with nickel outer sleeves turned to .010". This allows effortless playing, but their weight and hardness improve projection and tone at higher volumes.
Three removable mouthpipes are included to allow you to easily tailor the response to your style. These pipes are based on some vintage favorites: Los Angeles Philharmonic player Byron Peeble's NY Bach original, and two Conn-style pipes made by the great L.A. horn maker Larry Minick.
Includes Protec 306 hard case and mouthpiece.
