Shires designs with Eastman production.

The TBQ30R Q-Series Professional F-Attachment Trombone from S. E. Shires is a handcrafted instrument that delivers boutique quality at an accessible price point. Featuring an 8.5" two-piece QTY bell in either yellow or gold brass with a soldered bead, the TBQ30R promotes clarity and projection with a rich, resonant tone. Its F attachment includes a rotary valve to improve the low register and reduce air resistance for a free-blowing feel.

The TBQ30R's 8.5" QTY bell is hand-hammered and offers complex overtones, radiant tone, and superb projection. Made of balanced yellow brass, the two-piece bell includes a separate stem and flare for stability and tonal density. Its QI taper provides a dark quality reminiscent of classic trombones. Together, these premium components give players an expansive, resonant voice.

The TBQ30R's open-wrap F attachment uses an optimized rotary valve to direct air through a straight path. The result is remarkable focus and clarity in the lower register for a responsive feel. For players seeking improved focus and less wind resistance, the rotary F valve is ideal.

The TBQ30R includes 3 interchangeable yellow brass leadpipes—numbered 1, 2, and 3—so players can customize the trombone's response to their needs. Select lead pipe 1 for a bright, open sound. Leadpipe 2 provides a balanced response. Leadpipe 3 features a warm, centered tone. With multiple leadpipe options, players can shape their sound for any musical situation. S. E. Shires is devoted to designing and building quality brass instruments and their "Quality Without Compromise" philosophy is evident in the TBQ30R. In addition to its resonate bell and F attachment, the trombone features a 0.547" QW47 handslide and nickel-silver slide crook for smooth action and crisp articulation. For unparalleled performance, the TBQ30R is an excellent choice.
