Meister Fontana Tenor Trombone


Fun, lively & warm.

The Fontana signature model trombone is the result of a two year journey to create an instrument with a lively tone appropriate to an orchestra, yet light, centred, and compact in fortissimo playing.

In piano passages, the Fontana’s tone is full, gentle and warm. The F attachment is an original Schagerl valve, providing outstanding intonation and projection. The valve throw is very short, providing a quick and light action, and increased agility for the player. The slide wrap is somewhat wider than normal, more akin to a bass trombone slide, making the sound compact and warm. 

The Schagerl Meister Fontana Trombone is multifaceted, excelling in jazz and solo work.

"I'm always fascinated by the quality of Schagerl instruments. In them I found the sound I was always looking for. The magic of Schagerl."

- Lito Fontana

In the last few years, Lito Fontana has become one of Europe’s finest trombone players in the brass world. His ability to combine a perfect technique and special fine sound with an extraordinary interpretation is appreciated by the audience as well as by his colleagues.

Trained at the prestigious Conservatoire Rossini in Persaro, Italy, in younger years he gathered experience performing as principal trombone in classical orchestras and in collaboration with musicians including Chet Baker and Billy Cobham. Moving to Austria he joined Juvavum Brass and performed together with James Morrison, Allen Vizzutti, Gabor Tarkövi, Hans Gansch , Roland Szentpali, and many others.

As soloist of Brass Band Oberösterreich, Lito has performed all over Europe and as guest soloist with European Brass and Wind Bands, and got two nominations in the Brass Band of the Year 2008 & 2010.
