What do the musicians have to say about XO?
Trombonist Joshua Bledsoe has several trombones on his recommendation list, including a 1240L Independent Bass Trombone, 1236L-T Trombone, and 1236L-O Trombone. “From blistering orchestral passages, to the most delicate moments in chamber music...XO Trombones deliver a beautifully consistent sound and easy playability.”, he said.
XO trumpets, like XO trombones, are versatile and can be used in different types of performances. Presidio Brass trumpeter Miles McAllister hails his 1602 trumpet as multi-functional and omnipotent. "My XO 1602 trumpet is a jack of all trades. It has a warm sound when I want it and then it can really light up when I lean on it. The flexibility of the instrument allows me to get around the horn easily and the response is superb. This is a great tool for anyone who needs to be able to play all styles with confidence."
