King 2B Model 2102
For 50 years, jazzers throughout the world have praised-and played-the legendary King 2B. Perhaps no other straight tenor trombone in history has been used in more jazz and swing gigs and recordings than the King 2B. Its easy to see why. The 2B projects when you want it to, which makes it a natural for lead and solo work. Yet it also blends well with other brass and reed voices, which makes it equally suited for section work. The King 2B is truly a living legend.
The King Model 2102 is the classic 2B. It has a .481/.491" (12.22/12.47mm) duo-bore slide section. This bore arrangement (upper inner slide .481", lower inner slide .491") gives the 2102 a characteristic warmth and sweetness which makes it unique. The 2102 also features a 7-3/8" (187mm) yellow brass bell and nickel silver outer slide tubes. It comes with a King 12C Mouthpiece and a deluxe covered case
Legend 2B trombone, The King Model 2102L is known as the Jiggs Whigham model in honor of the renowned international artist who prefers it.2102L is a straight .491" (12.47mm) bore, lightweight version of the 2B. The slide assembly is designed and constructed so that its weight is kept to a minimum. This reduction in weight allows remarkable facility in rapid passages and reduces player fatigue on long gigs. The 2102L features a 7-3/8" (187mm) yellow brass bell and nickel silver outer slide tubes, and it comes with a King 12C mouthpiece and deluxe covered case.
The King Model 2102LS is the third and final member of the King 2B family. It is identical to the Jiggs Whigham model except that it features a shortened tuning slide. This means that first position is played approximately 1" out from the cork receiver barrel. This allows the soloist to use true slide vibrato (glissing both above and below the tone) in first position, which would otherwise be impossible.
