It's a great new lead trombone full of character, with a multi-dimensional sound that's perfect for a wide spectrum of playing styles and situations. It has a sweet sound when you want it, brilliance or bite when you need it, records beautifully, and has great projection for solos. And there's a beautiful 'sheen' in the tone when using slide vibrato which you just can't find on most other modern horns. One of the first things you notice when you try the Z is its response. It speaks immediately-probably faster than any trombone you've ever played! When playing very fast phrases, the clarity of each note is outstanding. You don't have to work as hard on the Z to sound better. Much better! Better than you've ever sounded before.
