The Kissbone was developed in cooperation with Mnozil Brass' Zoltan Kiss:
"Every musician dreams of playing on an instrument designed perfectly to suit their needs. I envisioned a trombone that would produce a brilliant sound quality, had perfect intonation and was free blowing across all registers.
Together with the Schagerl company, I designed the Kissbone X, incorporating features which enable me to not only play powerffult, but soft and tenderly with smooth and easy legato.
The F attachment is designed in a figure 8 system and functions as a super highway for the air stream, being especially advantageous for low register playing. The Kissbone X offers a rich tonal palette with the harmonics it produces and gives me the versatility that is essential for playing in a group such as Mnozil Brass.
I chose a combination of vintage and gold lacquers for my Kissbone X, making this already outstanding instrument as attractive to the eye as it is to the ear.
Thank you Schagerl, I couldn't have asked for a better instrument!"
