Damian plays the WESSEX PB4501 PREMIER TROMBONE.


My Wessex PB4501 plays really sweetly and easily in the upper register. It has a great tone and plays in tune across all registers. Clean and easy response, what more could you ask from a jazz horn? Best price for the quality and a warranty on top of it all!
