Using the resources of S.E. Shires’ parent company, the Eastman Music Company, we have been able to
develop a more affordable class of professional brass instrument: the Q Series. These instruments represent
the philosophy of Eastman Music Company, to produce the finest musical instruments at every price point.
Q Series are entry level professional instruments that have many of the same features as their custom
counterparts. When you purchase a Q Series instrument you join the S. E. Shires family, a family that includes
some of the finest professional musicians in the world.
