The Joseph Alessi Q Series Series Alto Trombone has been crafted with Mr. Alessi to offer an exceptional instrument at an affordable price. Similarly to his other Artist models, this instrument features a revolutionary combination of materials and construction to produce the perfect balance of color, efficiency, and resonance. The Q Alessi Alto bell features a two-piece, medium-weight yellow brass bell with bell tuning, which allows this instrument to easily project while maintaining a broad and warm sound. The newly designed bell tuning system allows the player to produce a compact and lively sound with a weight distribution more akin to a tenor trombone. The gold brass handslide with yellow brass crook in .485-.495 dual bore produces a rich, clear sound with complex overtones and a wide palette of colors at all dynamic levels. The Joseph Alessi Q Series Alto Trombone offers the ultimate versatility for any musician looking to be a cut above the rest.
