The Antoine Courtiois New York series trombones have been developed in collaboration with two outstanding American orchestral players, Paul Denson Pollard for the bass trombone, and Weston Sprott for the tenor trombone, both members of the New York Metropolitan Opera.
Both instruments are evolutions of the LEGEND models with many different features such as specially designed leadpipes, venturi and playing slides, different set-ups for the assembling points, as well as an ergonomic handrest.
For the first time in Antoine Courtois history, both of these models are equipped with a specially designed bell with a cut screw ring flare, which enables these instruments to be transported in a deluxe flat case, hardly larger than a viola case, making them much more travel friendly.
The screw ring on the bell flare also brings a more compact, focused sound with a lot of projection, which both players are particularly satisfied with.
Orchestral musicians are especially fond of bells in rose brass for their warmer sound and the possibility of broader and more powerful playing required by great works of the classical repertoire.
