In the world of bass trombones, there's no doubt that double trigger models are the "gold standard." These are the types of instruments you'll see in most of the world's orchestras and bands, with the ability to play any of the repertoire written for the trombone. If you're an ambitious beginner looking to kick things off with the challenge of a more complex instrument, or if you're an advancing student ready to move on from your single trigger starter, then this lineup of double trigger bass trombones is sure to have a few great options for you. All it takes is a bit of browsing to uncover them, and open up a new chapter in your musical hobby or career.
As with any trombone, you'll have your choice of specialty layouts, such as the Bach 50A Series Bass Trombone with Hagmann Valve or the S.E. SHIRES Blair Bollinger Bass Trombone with Axial-Flow F/Flat G Attachment. Naturally, you can also go a more conservative route with an instrument like the Jupiter 740 Series Bass Trombone, or if you'd like to go ultra-high-end, consider perhaps the Antoine Courtois Paris AC550BH Hagmann Series Bass Trombone. With options to cover any player from intermediate through professional, it's a safe bet you can find one that's perfect for you.
Maybe the voice of a typical bass trombone isn't quite low enough for you. In that case, make sure to check out the Kanstul Model 1690 F/C/Db/A Contra Bass Trombone. It's the largest trombone Kanstul makes, and its rich tone has been a big success for symphony orchestras all over the world. The designers really did their homework with this one, and it's surprising how easy and comfortable the trombone is to play, in spite of its large size. Phil Teele, George Thatcher, Bruce Otto, Craig Gosnell and Bob Sanders are just a few examples of leading musicians who play the 1690.
