Antoine Courtois Creation "New York" Series Bb Trombone AC421
The Antoine Courtois New York series trombones have been developed in collaboration with two outstanding American orchestral players, Paul Denson Pollard for the bass trombone, and Weston Sprott for the tenor trombone, both members of the New York Metropolitan Opera.
These two instruments are evolutions of the LEGEND models with many different features such as specially designed leadpipes, venturi and playing slides, different set-ups for the assembling points, as well as an ergonomic handrest.
For the first time in Antoine Courtois’ history, this model is equipped with a specially designed bell with a cut screw ring flare, which enables this instrument to be transported in a deluxe flat case, hardly larger than a viola case, making it much more travel friendly.
The screw ring on the bell flare also brings a more compact, focused sound with a lot of projection, which Weston Sprott is particularly pleased with.
