Mot Manfred
J`ai essayé presque tous les trombones sur le marché, mais mon Schmelzer Modèle1 reste mon préféré. C`est un trombone extraordinaire, il possède toutes les qualités que ce soit au niveau du son, de la facilité d'émission ou de la coulisse très légère et facile à manier. De plus, c'est un très bel instrument.
I thoroughly enjoy playing it!!
Thank you Manfred

Bertil Strandberg, plays w. Stockholm Jazz Orch. Jazz Baltica Orch.

"I've played just about every trombone on the market, but I must say that my Schmelzer Model Nr. 2 Trombone tops them all."

"...The first time that I tried it I knew right away that this trombone is something out of the ordianry. It has a beautiful warm sound. It speaks so easy ant its sound is so full that the instrument vibrates in your hands when you play it.
When I play fast lines on it, it responds quicker and more accurately than any other horn that I've ever tried. Its intonation is almost magical. I did not think it was possible to make a trombone so well in tone.... To sum it up: Fellow trombone players: This is the instrument we've all been waiting for!...
P.S. It looks great too. D.S.
