James Borowski play an Edwards bass trombone with a Schilke 59 mouthpiece. He has been performing on this equipment since 1994. If it ain't broke...

James also uses a Bach 42 for gigs on tenor trombone.

James even still has the first trombone he ever played, a King 3B from the 60's.

James uses a Tom Crown copper-bottomed straight mute, Humes and Berg Stone-Lined cup mute (to get that authentic sound), a Humes and Berg bucket mute and a plunger from the Home Depot.
