For 27 years I played a 1961 Silver King 2B. It was with me on hundreds of recordings and years of touring with the Rolling Stones, Frank Sinatra and Buddy Rich. It was my horn. When Steve sent me our final version of the Michael Davis trombone, it took one B-flat scale to realize this trombone is without question, the finest instrument I have ever played. THIS is my horn. Thank you team Shires for creating a masterpiece.
Our collaboration on the Michael Davis trombone has led us to an entirely new instrument. Along with Michael, we've developed a completely new style of bell and slide. Even the bracing was studied and dramatically adjusted. Together, I believe we have created a superb trombone.
This is the greatest small-bore trombone I have ever played.

The more I play this instrument, the more I want to play it. Effortless and beautiful. Can't wait to get my hands on one.
