A strong instrument with lots of character!
The BP-60 double-valve bass trombone is a wonderful instrument for beginning trombonists, as well as experienced trombonists, who play another member of the trombone family like tenor, and want to try out the bass.
- powerful bass trombone
- tuning: Bb-F-Gb-D
- 2 inline valves
- bore: 14.31 mm
- includes backpack-light case and cupped mouthpiece
The bass trombone is set apart from other trombones and trumpets with its larger bore, a wider bell and a larger mouthpiece. These modifications give the bass trombone good, responsive low tones with a full sound to add depth to orchestras, brass bands, big bands and trombone choirs. The brass used for the bell supports the powerful, clearly defined sound of the BP-60 from Classic Cantabile.
The two valves – an F attachment with a wooden thumb level and a bottom valve with adjustable finger lever – are arranged sequentially and can be used independently of each other.
The BP-60 bass trombone is tuned in Bb. Pressing the first (quart) valve F attachment changes the tuning to F. By pressing the second (quint) valve, the tuning is changed to Gb. By pressing both valves together, the D tuning is attained.
The BP-60 bass trombone: impressively powerful! Mighty impressive!
