For anyone, anywhere
Getting started in music can be tricky. The pBone plastic trombone has 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 of the pBone and will be surprised by the immediate progress they make in lessons. It's not just for children though... Existing trombone players choose the pBone for its versatility. Many leave their expensive, delicate instruments at home and take a tough, weather-resistant pBone when travelling or playing outside, in pubs, or at functions.
Bring on the rain!
The pBone 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. Traditional trombones are notoriously delicate, especially around the slide. The designers of the pBone alleviated this issue by making the slide out of strong glass fibre which is much tougher than fragile brass tubing. What's more, it still provides a smooth playing action! Now you can get playing straight away without any of the usual worries about handling such a large, delicate instrument.
Exceptional value for money
The pBone offers excellent value for money compared to a traditional brass trombone. Give something new a try without worrying about making a huge investment! Included with the pBone is a comfortable carry bag which provides a ready-made way to transport the instrument to lessons and gigs. Also included is a small shank mouthpiece to ensure that you can get started straight away. If prefered, you can also use any regular small shank metal mouthpiece. Many players choose to do this for a more familiar feel if the pBone is their second instrument. Plus, you can visit the pBone website for even more free resources including online lessons, backing tracks, and training.

"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 to it's obvious robust characteristics and the pBone makes a strong case for securing it's role as the ideal tool for whole class tuition."
