Here it is, a lead player’s dream horn. This is a ML bore CVLA from Shires. Based on designs by Dave Trigg, Shires has basically created their version of what feels to me part Benge 3X, part Callicchio 1S2. Open blow, easiest high G of any horn I’ve ever played, and lots of high overtones to help you sound bright and cutting all night, even in the middle of keyboard and guitar amps.

I babied this horn for the last three years. As you can see from the pictures, lacquer is about 99%, only a tiny bit of wear in two spots (pictured.) two very small dings on the bell, one from dropping a mouthpiece, the other from bumping a music stand. I swabbed the leadpipe and tuning slide EVERY time I played it. You are basically buying a horn that is like new. PVA by Josh Landress.

Also included is the Marco Magi Royal case made for Shires that came with the horn. The case has never been outside the house. It’s brand new.

I used this horn on Broadway, in big bands, jazz groups, and in TV commercials. It is definitely on the brighter side of the spectrum, but can play very nicely with a deeper mouthpiece as well. It would fit it with a brass quintet or symphonic pops program easily.

Here is a recent Subaru commercial with me playing this horn.
I come in at :48
