About the history of this great instrument:
King is one of the world’s largest and most recognized manufacturers of brass instruments.
The trombone offered here is a “Made in USA” instrument.
The high build quality of the instrument can be seen and felt immediately.
Many great “trombone heroes” such as J. J. Johnson, Kai Winding, Ed Neumeister, Adrian Mears, Jiggs Whigham and many others play a King.
It was built around 1977 and recently overhauled by us for you.
What makes this professional King bass trombone stand out:
- Fat, crisp sound, especially great for big band, jazz, pop and musical.
- The train is running great. No abrasion.
- The pull is cylindrical with a 14.3mm/ .562″ bore. The bell is 241mm/ 9.5″ wide.
- Yellow brass bell, nickel silver slide.
- The two dependent rotary valves have the tuning Bb/F/D
- As a lubricant, I recommend Slide-O-Mix Rapid Comfort for this 6b.

Condition of this King after intensive examination:
