For Anyone, Anywhere
Getting started in music can be tricky. PBone Plastic Trombones have opened up the world of brass to a whole new group of players.
Children, students and teachers love it for its durability and accessible design. It's lightweight and comfortable enough to be held by players of any age. Children are engaged easily by the fun design and immediate progress they make in lessons.
The PBone Mini is used by existing trombone and trumpet players because of its versatility, durability and familiar feel. It's ideal for teaching purposes or performance. Many established players leave their expensive, delicate instruments at home and take a tough, weather-resistant PBone Mini when travelling or playing outside, in pubs or at functions.
Tough Enough for Any Conditions
The PBone Mini can be used without worry anywhere. It's perfect for wet, windy or rough conditions where a conventional brass trombone may get damaged or rusted.
Conventional trombones are notoriously delicate, especially the slide. The PBone Mini slide is made of strong glass fibre that's much tougher than fragile brass tubing and provides a smooth action. Get playing straight away without any of the usual worries about handling such a large, delicate instrument.
Exceptional Value for Money
PBone Mini offers excellent value for money compared to a traditional brass trombone. Give something new a try without worrying about making a huge investment.
A small shank mouthpiece is included that's smaller in diameter than other trombone mouthpieces so children can play a range of notes comfortably. You can also use a suitable brass mouthpiece. Many players choose to do this for a more familiar feel if the PBone Mini is their second instrument.
A comfortable carry bag provides an easy way to transport the instrument to lessons and gigs. Plus, visit the pBone website for even more free resources including online lessons, backing tracks and training.
pBone and pBone Mini plastic trombones are available in a range of different bright colours. Click here to see the full pBone range.
"I have used pBones as an integral part of my unique BRASSED UP! shows since 2010. In both the education shows for children and the adult shows the pBones have proved to be extremely durable having survived 1000s of miles in a van plus 100s of performances. Their appeal works for both experienced trombonists and for people who have never held a trombone before. The attractive colours may draw people in, but it is the fact that they function so well as musical instruments that is really remarkable." James Stretton - Multi Brass Instrumentalist
"I have found the pBone to be an inspirational trigger to learning. It is almost impossible for a musician, or prospective musician, to dismiss the urge to pick one up and have a 'toot'. Combine this desirability with its obvious robust characteristics and the pBone makes a strong case for securing its role as the ideal tool for whole class tuition."
