This is a small bore tenor trombone made for Michael Davis by the S.E. Shires Company in Massachusetts. This particular example was purchased by the original owner through Mr. Davis. Compared to Shires' standard small bore model, this MD series has a lighter hand slide, lighter bracing, and distinctive round slide crook like Davis' favorite vintage King trombones. The .495" bore keeps it snappy and centered. The classic 1940's lead sound is yours with this horn.
The previous owner played some jobs outside near the ocean, so there is some lacquer wear throughout. I don't think it's worth relacquering, it's just used. There is one spot of acid bleed, no dents, the rest is just finish wear.
The slide action is 110%+ excellent. There is no smoother slide than on this Shires. Removable MD leadpipe is installed. Includes a lightweight case labeled Kuhnl & Hoyer. Mouthpiece is sold separately.
