Kuhnl & Hoyer Orchestra Signature Bass Trombone with Stacked Rotors
The K&H Orchestra Signature bass trombone is a premier instrument custom made in Markt Erlbach, Bavaria, Germany. The modular system allows customization to your preferences. This is one of very few bass trombones featuring the new Meinlschmidt Open-Flow rotary valves. These rotors are remarkable, and when mated to a fine German instrument like the Kuhnl & Hoyer, it's captivating.
This model with the D rotor stacked on the F loop allows a more open neckpipe, improving pedal tone response and broadening the sound overall while adding a more open feel. Some players may use a technique of "pre-selecting" the D valve so it's already engaged when they press the F.
Extra attention is paid to ergonomics. The hand slide features a curved brace and the bell section has an additional curved brace behind the trigger paddle. The second trigger paddle is curved to fit comfortable and an additional hand brace is available to support the back of the player's left hand (recommended).
