1977 Holton TR156 "Friedman" Model Trombone Review

This is a very unique instrument featuring an 8 5/8" gold brass bell with detachable bell flare (done at the factory), yellow brass tuning slide and .541" single-bore handslide with nickel silver outer tubes and yellow brass crook.  This particular TR156 is an unlacquer bell with a beautiful patina; with the exception of one small ding in the handslide crook and a few small areas of age-typical lacquer wear on the handslide braces and neckpipe it is in immaculate condition.  We find this instrument to be an exceptional straight large bore tenor; it has a wonderful depth and weight to it's sound while remaining responsive and at upper dynamics and register it gains a brilliance and shimmer but still stays open and centered with a great core.  Comes with the original Holton cut-bell case.  A truly unique piece not often seen!
