Instrument Innovations Tenor Rotary Valve plays more open than a traditional rotary valve without the extra wind required by an axial flow. Ball bearing technology allows lightning fast, smooth, and quiet operation. The pressure releases at half stroke with the venting system, which is only possible because of their precision machining. No lapping required. The rotor rides between bearings which eliminates the abrasion that causes the valve to lose seal.

The starting price (with F valve C10, C9 or C8 configuration.) is $5,100

The starting price (straight gooseneck C10, C9 or C8 configuration.) is $3,950

Options include:
  • Two piece cut bell with aluminum or Delrin threaded bell rings. -$250

Our optional cut bell with aluminum or Delrin threaded bell rings make our horns the ultimate traveling trombone!

We also offer compact "flat" cases that fit in any airline overhead for both tenor and bass trombones.

Speedyflo waterkey

Butler Speedyflo © water key has a very large opening to allow for quick release of moisture. It does not change the flow of air through the tube as there is no "dimple" on the inside of the tube. It uses an O ring to seal the opening and has a curved shaped plunger that matches the inside wall of the tube. In addition it uses a compression spring for much longer spring life.
