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 TR160 has all the attributes of the TR158 but with an open wrap F section. Players will immediately notice the ability to play low-range notes without loss of volume or increased resistance. Its .547" symphonic bore and open 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 dark rich sound. Dark but lively, the TR160 allows the musician to produce easily the perfects sound for a variety of styles. Available in silver-plate finish as model TR160S.
