Rath R9 Hagmann Independant Bass Trombone

Overview
Features
ProZone Insight

The options available for Michael Rath custom bass trombones are extensive, allowing you to configure an instrument unique to you. Available in a single valve model, the R8, and double valve independent and dependant models, the R9 and the R9D, the modular construction allows significant tailoring of an instrument.

The standard dimensions for the R8 and R9 are a bore size of 0.562” and a bell flare diameter of 9½” but other sizes are available on request. For example a “dual bore” slide of 0.562”/0.578” is possible and bell flares up to 10½” and above have been supplied. Similarly, as well as the standard independent double valve tuning of Bb/F/Gb/D, a Bb/F/G/Eb configuration can be supplied. Other tunings have also been accommodated. The standard dependant setup is Bb/F/D.

As with all Michael Rath custom trombones, an “in slide” tuning system for bass trombones similar to that on the R11 alto trombone is available. This has advantages of tuning and timbre with little penalty in terms of slide weight.

 

Rose brass 9.5" Bell (The higher the copper content in the material, the darker and warmer is the sound.)
Yellow brass tuning slide (Yellow brass and nickel silver tuning slides allow for clearer articulations than gold or red brass and can feel slightly more open.)
Bronze handslide (A bronze slide typically sounds darker and feels more centred. Bronze can be an excellent choice, for the R4 or R9 models, for a player searching for a dark, symphonic sound.)
Independant dual Hagmann rotors (The Hagmann is designed to cause as little disruption to the airflow as possible and feels very open in the valve register, even through the pedal register.)

Prozone Music is pleased to stock the world renowned trombones by Mick Rath, Made in the UK. Played Globally. A meaty trombone for the serious player. Supreme hand crafting by UK artisan technicians. Premium finish and build quality
