Valve Sections

Greenhoe Valve Sections feature the patented Greenhoe rotary valve, providing unmatched response and clarity. They also feature Greenhoe Sonic Suspension which allows the valve tubing to float away from the bell with connection only to cross bracing, thus permitting the bell to vibrate more freely. Tubing in the valve section is available in both yellow and red brass. Valve sections can be retrofitted to virtually any trombone via the Greenhoe Conversion process.


Handslide & Crook Alloys

Handslide and crook alloys have a direct effect on both the response and timbral characteristics of the instrument. Handslides come standard in yellow brass for GB models and rose brass for GC models. Nickel Silver is available by special order. Greenhoe Handslide Crooks feature proprietary designs by Gary Greenhoe that improve response, color and evenness of sound & feel. Handslide crook material is nickel silver for all models, with yellow brass and nickel silver available by special order.
