Michael Rath R1 Trombone, early production

Price: $2800

This is a neat Rath trombone from England. It seems to be early production, showing a serial of 006x and a bell stamp of “H” without bell engraving. It has a fixed leadpipe. Noticeably, this R1 is super lightweight and responsive in the hands. The thin red brass bell is really nice, likely spun by the original bell maker Andy Hutchinson. The R1 is a nice size! It has a .500”/.510” dual bore with a 7.5” bell and as such is very versatile. This one is a winner! Priced at $2800
