E.K. Blessing has always offered an affordable large bore F-attachment trombone for the advanced trombonist without compromising on build quality and playability. Approved by educators for decades, the classic B88 was a traditional first choice for a serious student, laying the foundation in high school bands across the USA. It is surpassed by the BTB-1488.
The new BTB-1488 trombones are an evolution of this legacy. Design refinement in the hand-slide construction and body bracing offer a more resonant instrument that is responsive and easier to play with fantastic projection. At Blessing, our core values remain the same. The BTB-1488 Performance trombones offer accessibility to a path for rapid growth and musical development along with a modern playing experience that rival many professional models.
