Rath continue Black Dyke link

Michael Rath Trombones and Black Dyke maintain musical partnership.

  The Black Dyke trombone section will continue to perform on Rath instruments

Michael Rath Trombones has announced the continuation of its partnership with Black Dyke Band.

The renowned instrument makers recently completed a new set of trombones for the Queensbury ensemble, continuing a link that first started 14 years ago.

Trio

Having earlier in the year built new instruments for solo trombone Brett Baker and bass trombone Adam Reed earlier in the year, long serving second trombone player Garry Reed is now testing the new R6 tenor trombone.

Speaking about the partnership, founder Mick Rath told 4BR: "Black Dyke is one of the most respected and busiest brass bands in the world in normal circumstances, and I'm delighted to continue to be associated with the band and the trombone section who have become friends as well as endorsees."

Honour

In response Brett Baker told 4BR: "Rath trombones are the instrument of choice for many of the world's finest performers so it is a great honour to be able to be asked to play on them with Black Dyke.

Despite the current circumstances, all three of us are looking forward to starting rehearsing soon and enjoying sounding as a section together again."
