    About the Shires Q Series Instruments: "We understand that not every musician may be ready for a Shires Custom instrument, or may find the cost of a custom instrument prohibitive. The development of the Q series allows for some of the best aspects of theShires Custom instruments to be offered at a very affordable price. This is done by utilizing the S.E. Shires Massachusetts factory for the design, quality control inspection and the manufacturing of critical parts. The Eastman Music Company's Beijing workshop's skilled craftsman are employed for the assembly, polishing, and other labor intensive aspects of building the instrument. I think this has let us achieve truly excellent trumpets and trombones at a price that represents an exceptional value worthy of the S.E. Shires name" —Steve Shires
