Principle Trombone Philharmonie ZuidNederland
After years of playing a Glassl alto-trombone I switched over to a Leuchter alto-trombone (this after hearing the good experiences of colleague-trombonists).
Some problems I had in the past, suddenly seemed to diminish, i.e.:
- the 7th position (2nd symphony of Brahms 1st part - choral)
- high C sharp (Beethoven's Missa Solemnis)
- e-flat for 3rd symphony of Schumann
But the gain for me is in the sound and resonance. The instrument starts a tone nicely and matches beautifully with the section across the entire register. Furthermore I like the price/quality ratio.
I'm very satisfied and I think the instrument is a must for my colleagues.
Thank you Markus for your craftsmanship!
