Product details

Rath pro level trombones are modular in design, as and when your needs change you can adapt the instrument to suit by changing components as necessary.

The medium/large bore R3 trombone and the large bore R4 are available with an F valve section with the designation of R3F and R4F. Michael Rath also offers the R4 and R4F models with "in slide" tuning,

Two valve choices are available, both Swiss designed: the René Hagmann valve or the Willson Rotax valve. The Hagmann is free flowing and well balanced between open and closed operation. The Rotax has a more traditional feel, offering a little more resistance, preferred by many players.

Because of the modular construction of Michael Rath custom trombones you can remove the valve section and replace it with a detachable gooseneck, available as an option, creating a straight tenor trombone. Similarly, if you already own a “straight” R3 or R4, you can purchase just the F valve section to fit your instrument.

Owing to the number of combinations of leadpipes/slides/bells etc available it is a time consuming process but very worthwhile and therefore Rath setups need to be done on an appointment basis with Steve Herbert our Brass Department Manager who is in sole charge of offering this special trombone tailoring service. Further details can be obtained by calling 01823 282386 or by emailing brass@johnpacker.co.uk
