The XO1632 was developed over many years in collaboration with world-renowned trombone player John Fedchock. Its distinct character is entirely based on his specifications and preferences. With it's ultra light and balanced design, it conveys a warm, articulate and rich sound that is flexible enough to master any musical challenge.
The XO1632 offers a good all round option on bore size. At .500 inch it is between the King 2B and 3B for example and could be use for jazz, big band, commercial and more. This RGL-LT model features a 7.5 inch rose brass bell which adds warmth and fluidity to the sound. We'd suggest giving this 1632 serious consideration when comparing against its more expensive small bore counterparts from King, Yamaha and Bach. Who is John Fedchock?
John Fedchock’s illustrious career in jazz has spanned over three decades.
