4047DS Large Bore Tenor Trombone
The 4047DS Custom Reserve is the first new Getzen trombone in more than a decade. Three years in the making, designed from the ground up just for you. It's not just the trombone you want, but the trombone you deserve.
Asymmetrical bracing that incorporates the use of both nickel silver and yellow brass. The combination of metals creates a balance within the bracing that adds to the harmonic resonance.
A newly designed neckpipe. An all new pipe taper and dimensions evens out intonation tendencies within the harmonic series to create a more consistent feel and sound.
Rotor and Wrap
Getzen PowerBore Rotor. This enhanced conventional rotor combines the tried and true benefits of a conventional rotor with certain design tweaks and improvements such as port diameters, rotor passageways, and back plate inserts.
"DS" Double Edge Bracing born of the famous Edwards B454-DE bass trombone. This innovative bracing design within the bell section frees both the F attachment and the bell from inherent stress caused by conventional, invasive bracing systems improving both response and the overall resonance/liveliness of the trombone.
Solid nickel silver cork barrel assembly adds strength and mass to the inner handslide.
A brand new leadpipe in the Getzen world. Dozens of leadpipes were tested until the perfect match was found. As it turns out, the perfect fit was a decades old design that, until now, had been lost to history.
A large diameter, yellow brass end crook specifically designed and chosen to provide the width of sound and consistent feel players demand.
