Founded in Chicago when Frank Holton opened a small instrument shop in 1898, The Frank Holton & Co. grew to one of the most influential instrument manufacturers in the first half of the twentieth century in the US. Today, the tradition continues with high quality trumpets, flugelhorns, and trombones being hand-crafted in Elkhart, Indiana, and in Eastlake, Ohio.
One of the flagship models of Holton professional tenor trombones, the TR158 is ideal for those who specialize in solo work, symphonic band, orchestral and chamber music. Its .547" symphonic bore and traditional wrap F section with a nylon ball-and-socket linkage make for a quick and positive response. The combination of rose brass bell and lightweight nickel silver out handslide tubes results in a quick yet warm sound. Dark but lively, the TR158 allows the musician to produce easily the perfects sound for a variety of styles. Available in silver-plate finish as model TR158S.
