Egger Tenor Sackbut after Schnitzer

Price: *on request*

After Anton Schnitzer the Elder, Nuremberg 1579
Original: Accademia Filarmonica, Verona

The sackbut of Anton Schnitzer the Elder is one of the oldest surviving trombones. It is of particular importance. The original is now in the Accademia Filarmonica in Verona and was studied in detail as part of Hannes Vereecke’s dissertation. In this context, Rainer Egger measured the acoustic and geometric properties and crafted an authentic replica. This includes the lavish ornamentation, which was accurately reproduced via castings of the bracing patterns. All these premises allow us to offer an utmost accurate copy of this significant instrument of trombone history today.
