The Sierman STB-978S Professional Custom tenor trombone features an 8.46 in / 215 mm one-piece, hand-hammered, gold brass bell and is extremely versatile. Whether you play primarily symphonic, classical, big band, jazz or pop, all Sierman trombones have the an extremely solid core sound throughout all registers, offering many colors to your sound and your music. With a 0.55 in / 13.89 mm large bore combined with the traditional wrap F attachment, the STB-978S offers outstanding clarity and projection with just the right amount of resistance. The slide is among the smoothest available in the world. Formed from chrome plated nickel silver inner hand slide tubes, you will love how you can completely take your mind off slide thoughts and focus on musical thoughts. The standard finish is a clear lacquer finish, which adds a warmth to the overall sound. However, other finishes are available as options.
Do not let the price fool you. These trombones are hand made to the highest standards. Every instrument is meticulously crafted, assembled and put through a 25-point play testing inspection to ensure consistent quality of every trombone made. We have these trombones tested side-by-side by endorsed artists from all the more well known, top professional horns at conference after conference, and the feedback is unanimous. Sierman Trombones play equal to or better than any comparable horn, and at a significant savings.
The fullness of sound achieved by Sierman is remarkable. One-piece construction bells maximize the vibration and overtones of the sound. Gold brass helps provide a warmer tone. We offer other special-order options, such as different bell materials and different finishes, extra lightweight slides etc.
Phoenix Music is the United States Exclusive Distributor for Sierman Trombones and we pride ourselves in excellent customer service before and after the sale. We want your next trombone purchase to excite you, inspire you, to become your muse!
We often get asked what "name brands" do our Sierman instruments compare to. Playing our trombones in person is recommended to see just how good they play compared to the competition. But, to answer the question... Sierman Trombones compare directly (as good or better) to trombones from Shires, Bach, Edwards, Rath, Yamaha and Conn.
