Anders Larson plays a Shires small bore trombone, a Bach 36 and a large bore Yamaha YSL-682. Also the proud owner of a collection of various trombone mutes, all with more or less disintegrating cork fittings. Mouthpieces? Don’t get me startet…but my current favorite is the amazing small bore Laskey 50C. That is a keeper!
