All Getzen Custom Series Trombones are based on the best designs from the Getzen ProShop. Custom Series Trombones are designed to offer players the ability to choose between different bells and leadpipes. This allows the player to customize their trombone to deliver the desired sound and response. Custom Series Trombones are ideal for college music majors and top professional trombonists.
Custom Series Tenor Trombones are available with either yellow or red brass bells. The professional weight hand slides are yellow brass with nickel silver end crooks and oversleeves. All Custom Series Tenor Trombones come with three interchangeable leadpipes to enable the player to further customize the response of the instrument to meet any need.
Axial flow valves have revolutionized the playing of the F attachment on the trombone. The operation of the valve keeps the air column entering the attachment relatively straight. This makes playing through the attachment much like playing through an open horn. Getzen high performance axial flow valves are smooth, quiet and easy to maintain.
Only instruments newly ordered and shipped from the Getzen Company will include the new Griego Custom mouthpieces. Trombones already in dealer inventory may not include the mouthpieces. It is recommended that retail customers confirm that any Custom Series trombone in question is indeed a new instrument with the Griego mouthpieces and not old stock. Getzen is not responsible for furnishing Griego mouthpieces to players purchasing instruments sold to dealers prior to the introduction of the mouthpieces.
