Bart van Lier about the Bb-Tenor Trombone “.480/488“:

“Kühnl & Hoyer and I are very proud to present the new Bart van Lier model ‘MK II’. There were still some wishes to make the Bb-tenor trombone ‘.480/88’ more flexible and mellow. It is very easy now to go from a darker to a brighter sound and slurs are more smooth. The response is still easy, while the tone quality gives you the idea of a bigger bore instrument. The set up I use now is as follows: ‘.480/88’ bore with bigger bell (diameter 195 mm) and silver lead pipe in combination with my ‘8F mouthpiece’. This is the best horn I ever played. TRY IT!!!”

Bart van Lier about the Bb-Tenor Trombone “.500“:

“The 0.500” bore (medium bore) tenor trombone is the most popular bell diameter since the fi fties. For some trombone players, a small bore instrument does not give enough freedom to express themselves. However, the medium bore Bart van Lier ‘.500’ of Kühnl & Hoyer is attractive for every tenor trombone player. The tone of this instrument is a good mixture of roundness, warmth and brightness. Because of the light resistance, this instrument is also suitable for beginners. I am so enthusiastic about this trombone that I have also absorbed this model, next to the small bore ‘Bart van Lier’-trombone, in my professional playing.”
