„Markus Leuchter’s alto trombone is easily the best I have ever played.
Its sound is pure, rich, and very distinct from the sound of a tenor trombone. This instrument is an excellent evolution of the classic Glassl alto.
It maintains its predecessor’s idiomatic sound and facility in the high range, and adds a functional 7th position, superior tuning, and very even, easy production throughout the instrument’s range.
Months after acquiring it I am still surprised at how fluid and natural it feels to play. Notes slot where one would expect them to, and the evenness of the tone and pitch throughout the instrument’s range makes playing much more predictable. Markus is clearly passionate about creating instruments of the highest quality and artistry, and I consider myself fortunate that I have the opportunity to play this beautifully crafted trombone. “ (Charles Benaroya)
