With the help of Mr. Thomas King, a local trombone player in Cleveland, Ohio, H.N. White developed his first trombone in 1894 which was viewed in the market as a revelation to the music world due to radically different bell, bore and mouthpipe designs than those of other current prevailing models. Players loved the King trombone because the slide was finer, smoother, and lighter in action than any other. Since 1894 the King name has been synonymous with world-class high quality brass instruments. World renown artists, the likes of Tommy Dorsey, Ziggy Elman, Julian “Cannonball” Adderley, Charlie “The Bird” Parker, and Harry James, all trusted King as their choice of musical instrument. Built in Eastlake, Ohio, today’s King professional trombones draw from that musical heritage and continue to set the standard for today’s small bore jazz trombones. With a pedigree like no other, King trombones continue to be the choice of jazz artists the world over.
The King 608F tenor is great crossover F attachment trombone. Similar to the 607F in design, the 608F has a warmer tone that is a result of the 8″ rose brass bell. The traditional wrap F section promotes clean attacks and stability. The F thumb lever is located behind and to the side of the main brace allowing the weight of the trombone to be cradled between the thumb and first finger making for a very balanced and comfortable instrument. The chrome plated nickel silver inner handslide tubes provide the ideal surface for smooth and quick handslide action. The clear lacquer finish provides a subtle warmth to the overall sound. The 608F is a well designed durable instrument perfect for the students and amateur musicians and is well suited for all types of music. Available in silver-plate finish as model 608FSP.
