Alto Trombone Equipment: Instruments

The following information comes either directly form the manufacturer or from their literature or via on line sources like ebay. All photos are used with the permission of the manufacturer. In some cases companies did not respond so I do not have material from that company. These companies are not listed but will be included as the information becomes available.

If you have any information to add to this list, please contact Robert Kehle.
