The Blair Bollinger Travel Model Bass Trombone is a unique variation on the classic Blair Bollinger Model bass trombone. This instrument is a superb choice for musicians who travel frequently and includes many of the same features of the classic Bollinger Model. The Bollinger Tuning System facilitates playing scales and arpeggios with the smallest number of handslide positions possible. Custom lever geometry requires a shorter throw while the independent Tru-Bore valves maintain a wide breadth and clarity of sound. The weighted mouthpipe collar, custom-weight dual-bore handslide, and unique tuning slide provide quick response and clear articulations while retaining the density and color of yellow brass. A custom weighted tuning slide further pairs a quicker response with the larger sound and feel of our "C" taper tuning slide. Complimented by the detachable-flare yellow brass Bollinger bell, this instrument produces a broad orchestral sound with unparalleled response and clarity, while still providing superior flexibility for traveling musicians.
