At a tempo of about one bar at 100, the trombonist neeeds a quick, sure response to play this passage. It does not take as long, nor is it as difficult to
establish a note with the Thayer valve.
The uncompromised fundamental sound wave allows a clear centering of the note on a given pitch. It gives a feeling of precision and control. Both the low
and high ranges are outstanding in definition and clarity.
Ein Heldenleben, Richard Strauss
The Thayer valve makes this beautiful solo playable with no variation in balance and tone. It provides uniform performance whether in open or operated
Symphony No. 3, Saint-Saens
Maximum fortissimo passages are delivered full, round, and solid without the harsh flare of an overblown note. Feather light pianissimos speak with delicacy and
assurance. All intensities are delivered with less effort as with the valve-less trombone.
