From the professional family of Jupiter designs, this XO series bass trombone is a masterful symphonic instrument. XO trombones are at the forefront of computer-aided design while still utilizing the skilled hands and talents of highly trained artisans. Precision crafted hand-polished chrome inner slide assemblies coupled with computer-aligned outer slide assemblies provide incredible action and player sensitivity.
The commanding power of this independent system, dual Thru-Flo valve model is prominent each time you perform. A large .571" bore bass trombone with 9.5" handcrafted bell creates a solid presence while still maintaining dynamic sensitivity and focus. A choice of either yellow brass or rose brass is available (select from drop-down menu). Both bell options include soldered, oversized bell wire for increased sustain and sonic brilliance. The Thru-Flo valves provide unrestricted airflow and enhanced tonal clarity while offering superb intonation. The precision hand slide with brass outer tubes and chromed nickel inner tubes are hand-finished to ensure the smoothest possible operation. One sterling silver and two brass interchange-able mouthpipes allow the artist to custom tailor the instrument's air column for the desired response.
A magnificent bass trombone, competitive with any of the major brands. If you are ready to step into an instrument you will have for a lifetime, the 1240L merits your consideration.
