Leather Grips
Hickey's Music stocks a large variety of leather slide grips and neckguards for many trombone makes & models. In order to make selecting the correct set easier for you, use the table below to locate your instrument and model. The table does not include options for bell color, weight or size (i.e. Bach 42B vs. Bach 42BG). If your trombone is not listed on the chart, then guards may not be available for it. We don't have measurements for many of these items, so we are unable to recommend guards for instruments not listed based on similarity of size, etc. If a leather guard is listed on the chart but not available for ordering on the site, that's because it is likely to be out of stock. See below for how to order. Please take a few moments to read through the following to better understand the situation.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • This chart is updated constantly and represents what we know to be true as of this moment.
  • If your trombone is not listed on the chart below, then specifically tailored guards are not available for it. Instead you might wish to try a Universal grip or guard. These have measurements that you can compare to your instrument for possibility of good fitment.
The chart below represents the complete listing as we know it to exist at this moment in time. Model numbers for leather grips or guards are assigned to a specific make and model of instrument. They are not assigned according to the bore size of the instrument, its manufacturer or series, or its function in the orchestra — rather they are made according to the instrument's actual geometry, including slide width, lower slide tube diameter, slide brace diameter, slide brace length, absence or presence of "L" brackets on the slide brace, size and placement of slide brace ferrules, size and placement of valve (if any), location and diameter of valve tubing, position of the moon, the price of tea in China, etc. Also note that some instruments have only slide grips and that neckguards are not available. In these cases the abbreviation "n/a" is used in the table. If your instrument is not listed, but you know that it is the same in all these respects (moon and tea excepted) then you might consider ordering a set for the similar listed model. Do this only if you are sure (i.e., you've checked it with a ruler - don't guess). Alternately, you might wish to try a Universal piece based on your measurements.

Slide Grips typically lace on with a shoestring (included). Units by Leather Specialties feature a vapor barrier that prevents moisture from reaching the surface of the instrument. So far as we know, these will not effect the sound or response of the instrument, although they will of course make your slide grips feel thicker & softer.

Neck Guards for valved instruments typically use a velcro fastener to attach to the trombone. Neck guards for straight instruments typically use a lace-on design instead. See the product description and/or photo for details. This is not optional—if it uses velcro, then laces are not available and vice versa.) In addition, most neck guards have a small pencil pocket attached, allowing you to keep a short pencil on your horn for rehearsal purposes. Neckguards made by Leather Specialties feature a vapor barrier that prevents moisture from reaching the surface of the instrument. So far as we know, they will not effect the sound or response of the instrument.

Delivery Time - We carry many of these grips & guards in stock, and as such they are available for immediate delivery to you. Sometimes we experience backorders from the manufacturer and might be sold out of certain models. Sold-out items have typically been taking one to three weeks to arrive to us from the manufacturer.

Colors - All catalog numbers shown below are for black leather. Brown models (which use different catalog numbers) are also available, but almost every one will need to be special ordered (see Delivery Time above).

How To Order - Just click on the catalog number of the item you desire and you will be taken to a page specifically for that item, where you can add it to your cart.

Leather Grips & Guards

  • Choose your trombone from the list of available makes & models.
  • If your trombone is not listed then perhaps a UNIVERSAL grip or guard might work.
  • Chart is updated constantly and represents what we know to be true right now.
