S.E. Shires Trombone Replacement Leadpipe

$130.00

Item Details

This is a group of replacement leadpipes for S.E. Shires trombones.   Made in Hopedale, MA, these are threaded at the top .  These pipes may also fit several other brands, including some Kanstul trombones.  Your favorite brass technician can make it work. (Maybe he will have a large enough hammer.)

The sizes in the drop down menu are the only sizes available.  A few may have marks from handling or a bit of tarnish but functionally they are all good as new.

From the S.E. Shires website:

The leadpipe is the first point of contact with the player after the mouthpiece and is therefore a very important component for you to select for your desired sound and feel. The diameter and placement of the venturi (the smallest point in the taper of the pipe) have significant effects on the playing characteristics of an instrument. Three interchangeable yellow brass leadpipes are included with each slide:

  • 1 = Smallest venturi diameter: compact sound with very clear articulation
  • 1.5 = between 1 and 2
  • 2 = Medium venturi diameter: more open sound
  • 2.5 = between 2 and 3
  • 3 = Largest venturi diameter: large, broad sound

Leadpipes for the various bore sizes are stamped as follows, before the number:

  • T85 = .485 bore
  • T0 = .500 bore
  • T8 = .508 bore
  • M = .525 bore, small shank receiver
  • MT = .525 bore, large shank receiver
  • (none) = .547 bore
  • B = .562 bore (bass trombone)
  • BB = .578 bore (XL bass trombone)
  • L = Longer version of any numbered pipe for more centered feel
