Brass Ark “Arkbone” Custom 1.0 Trombone

Price: $3500 sale pending

This is a gently used original Brassark Custom “Arkbone 1.0” made by HSM Brass in Germany. This is one from the original batch, with serial number 003. It features a two piece yellow and gold brass multi-metal bell flare, Meinlschmidt Radial flow F attachment, wide gold brass slide with seamed nickel slide crook, copper press fit Brassark MV42 leadpipe. I was very proud of these early Arkbones and they sold very well, I think a total of 12 were made and I honestly believe it is one of the best mixes of in between a Bach 42 and Conn 88H of any trombone that has been made. Super easy to play, flexible and predictable with wonderful colors and dynamic control and exudes confidence when you’re playing it. The radial valve is based on the original Minick design and its fantastic. This one is $3500 with a case and its a bargain at that price for the amount and quality of trombone this is.
