The trombone is said to be;Â brassy, brilliant, powerful, overpowering, solid, tense, penetrating, dramatic, hard, full, sinister, softÂ andÂ round.Â
All models in the Odyssey range of high quality brass band and orchestral instruments have been meticulously designed down to the finest details by Peter Pollard. Itâ€™s hardly surprising that, with over 50 years experience and having listened to the â€˜wantsâ€™ of countless high profile musicians, this master craftsman is one of the most sought after custom brass and woodwind builders in the world.Â Â
There are many good reasons why this gorgeous Bb Tenor Trombone from the Odyssey Premier Series is a firm favourite, and popular with musicians in the world of brass. The first, and so noticeably visual, is the featured rose brass bell (almost unheard of at this price point), brass body and stunning lacquered finish.Â Â
With a 204.4mm/8.04" bell diameter, this superb Bb tenor trombone produces sweet, warm, rich mellow overtones.Â
The most distinguishing part of a trombone is of course, the allÂ important slide, effective for producing note slide, one of the most recognisable sonic characteristics of the trombone. The Odyssey Premier Series Bb Tenor Trombone features a cupronickel slide, super smooth to operate and with the ability for the player to effortlessly create fast or slow vibrato and how wide the note should be.Â The response, intonation and all-around performance of the Odyssey Premier Series Bb Tenor Trombone coupled with the high-quality materials, make this an ideal instrument for the first-time player, teacher, or the most experienced musician.Â
As a company producing some of the worldâ€™s finest brasswind instruments, Odyssey recognise the fact that protection whilst travelling with a delicate instrument is paramount. To ensure players can maintain a high standard with this instrument, Odyssey has included gloves and a cleaning cloth and rod, whilst a plush lined, robust zero-gravity â€˜back packâ€™ hard foam, plush lined canvas covered case with shoulder straps, takes all the worry out of commuting with such a delicate instrument.Â
