Holton 169 “The Brass Lab” Bass Trombone

Price: $4300

Another special bass trombone here at The Ark. This is a vintage Holton 169 bell that has had a custom inline valve section installed by Chuck McAlexander of the famous BRASSLAB NYC. The slide is a Holton TR180. I believe the rotary valves are from a Bach 50 (at least they look like it to my eyes). The red brass 169 bell is a 9.5” version and is based on the Bach New York 50 bell flare. The horn has seen some use over the years and its not going to win a beauty contest, but its a killer sounding instrument and super fun to play… just the right amount of analog to modern feel. $4300 with a Bonna case.
