From top to bottom, Getzen Trombones are known around the world for their playability and durability. The same important construction techniques used to make Custom Series Trombones so widely respected, are put into practice during the making of all of our trombone lines.
So what makes Getzen trombones so well respected? The most important thing is the slide. Every Getzen Trombone features nickel silver inside slide tubes. These tubes are chrome plated to ensure that they stand up to the tests of time, and each tube is barrel-shaped to ensure the fastest and smoothest possible slide action. In addition, each slide tube is drawn using special tooling designed specifically for drawing the straightest possible trombone tubes. This, and the fact that every tube is straightened by hand, guarantees that you won't find a trombone slide anywhere that is faster or smoother than a Getzen.
In addition to the finest slides, Getzen Trombones also feature top quality hand-spun bells in a variety of gauges and metals. The upper line trombones feature several optional bells designed to meet the needs of the specific player. Getzen Eterna and Custom Series trombones feature conventional and axial flow valves respectively. Each of which are manufactured to highest possible standards.
