TROMBONE TENOR WITH F-ATT

The F attachment adds a wrap of tubing coupled with a trigger and rotary valve which lowers the pitch a perfect fourth. This enables the player to play lower notes than would otherwise be possible on the standard tenor trombone. Brass lacquer, generally. Silver plated version available in very limited locations.
