This is a new 383-A in a lacquer finish. This is a very responsive large bore straight tenor. This would be ideal for large orchestral work, or big band playing. It is a model built to Joe Alessi specs, and is a fantastic playing horn! Similar to the T396A Alessi, but without the F attachment section, allowing the horn to soar effortlessly. The Edwards T383-A tenor trombone is a premium level instrument that excels in every regard. Its fit and finish is superb, and its playing characteristics are unusually excellent. The horn comes in one configuration (i.e. optional bell materials, slides,etc. are not available). Does not come with a case.
