1242 Bass Trombones

The 1242 bass trombone with dependent valve system delivers a full and rich sound with the benefit of less resistance. Whether performing in a section or as a soloist, the 1242 provides the low end necessary for any musical genre.

Dependent Valve System

The dependent valve system allows for greater flexibility in the lower register.

Two-piece Bell

The two-piece bell ensures consistent thickness with controlled resonance.

Interchangeable Leadpipes

The interchangeable leadpipes allow the player to personalize their playing experience. We offer three different leadpipes:
- Yellow Brass, length 220 mm: Our standard leadpipe, less resistance for players that prefer an open, free-blowing feel
- Yellow Brass, length 260 mm: Provides that little extra resistance for better slotting and articulation
- Sterling silver, length 220 mm: Same dimensions as our standard leadpipe, offers solid fundamentals and a clear attack

Removable Counterweight System

The XO three-pieces-balance-counterweight system can be installed or removed with a threaded cap easily. It allows the performers to balance their instruments and offers a better playing experience. The performers can decide whether to use the counterweight system depending on their personal preferences.
