The player will immediately notice the ability to play low-range notes without loss of volume or increased resistance. The rose brass bell imparts a rich, dark sound. The TR160 is responsive and flexible for use as a tenor, yet heavy enough to fill in on bass. This model is remarkably well balanced and comfortable to hold.
A large-bore tenor designed to serve as an alternative to artist models, the TR680 allows the student to bridge the gap between small-bore and large-bore instruments. It is highly recommended as an introduction to the bass trombone, as it offers enough resistance for the student to produce a full sound and assists in maintaining intonation. The unique flat wrap F attachment provides an extra measure of protection against damage.
