M&W Custom Trombones have been designed with the professional trombonist in mind and are built to the finest standards of quality and fit. The instruments are crafted so you, the player, will enjoy a classic, rich trombone sound with an ease of response throughout the entire range of the instrument. Trombonists will find M&W instruments embody equal capabilities of delicate, pianissimo playing as well as powerful projection in louder dynamics. We understand that finding the right instrument for your craft is of great significance and something we take very seriously.

M&W Custom Trombones supports the work of Benjamin Yates and the University of Louisiana.
