Are you in the market for a bass trombone?

If you are looking for a pro level bass trombone then John Packer has one ready and waiting for a new home...

Bass trom
  The Holton bass trombone is waiting for a new home

John Packer Ltd currently has a Holton pro level bass trombone in the shop waiting for a new owner.

Equally suited and popular for use in a brass band, wind band or orchestral playing, the Holton TR181 has the reputation of having established the true bass trombone sound.

Warm timbre

The red brass bell has been styled to maintain a consistent, warm timbre at low and high dynamic levels, whilst the G/Gb attachment can be reconfigured to the player's taste for setting up low C and B natural when desired.

The bore design assures proper reinforcement of the lower partials making it one of the most sought-after bass trombones on the market. Try it and you'll see why!

Comes complete with a case and a 1 ½ G Mouthpiece.

Interested?
