This is an O'Malley Professional Alto Trombone.

This horn is great for learning to play Alto Trombone. It has a removable Bb trigger attachement.

It has a dual bore in the keys of Eb and Bb and includes 2 lead pipes to accommodate a small or large bore mouthpiece (bore sizes are .523 and .547 with a 7.16 bell making for great tone quality).

As you learn to play the Eb side you can quickly get back to Bb trombone positions by simply utilizing the trigger..

Includes a lightweight, hard case and a 12C mouthpiece. Everything is brand new and in perfect shape.

The suggested retail price is $995 at O'Malley. I want to sell it for a great low price to someone who wants to quickly learn to play the alto trombone, so I'm only asking $800 plus shipping.  I don't know the exact amount the shipping will be but I'm guessing around $75 in the U.S.  I'll only charge what it costs to UPS it to you.

Just letting you know, according to O'Malley's website, these go new for $995, with payment plans as well: https://omalleymusicalinstruments.com/shop/brass/trombones/omalley-alto-trombone-ebbb-trigger/. The $1595 retail price you're thinking of is probably just that typical high-end retail price made to look like you're scoring a great deal with the manufacturer and/or seller. I worked in retail a lot and saw this happen all the time. I have a lot of friends who saw the same thing while working in music stores as well. How much did you pay for this horn? A good rule of rule of thumb is lowering the price 5-10% lower than a major distributor if the horn is brand new. If it's used, then dropping the price 15-20% is a good start, lowering the price depending on how much wear and tear and/or repairs are needed. Would you also be able to give some feedback on the horn? Possibly comparing it to how other altos sound/feel? There's not much information out there on O'Malley's brand, seven on this forum, so a first-hand account would be a great insight to this brand.

These have been around for a while; another Jin Bao instrument. 

Jim Laabs Music in Stevens Point, WI has had this same model under the Schiller name for some years now.

Wow! I've never seen a trill valve in the tenon like that before! Interesting!
