Whether you're looking for a fun, care-free instrument for yourself or you're looking for a fun jumpstart for your pre-band-aged child, the pBone is a great option for all ages.
Easy to Play
The pBone is much lighter than traditional brass trombones. The light weight aids your child’s ability to develop good technique and posture and means their arms won’t get tired as quickly; they can enjoy playing for longer and progress faster!
The pBone is fantastic value for money, costing around a quarter of the price of beginner brass trombones. It comes with everything your child needs to play before they're old enough to start band: a handy carry bag, two plastic mouthpieces (6.5AL and 11C, although it’s also compatible with any small shank trombone mouthpiece) and an array of supporting online learning resources should you need them.
Brass trombones are easily dented, damaged and high maintenance. Because the pBone is made from plastic it is extremely durable and strong, and can withstand the inevitable rough treatment it may receive wherever you take it! Low maintenance and robust the pBone is a worry free, dependable and fun trombone.
Before use, pour a small amount of lukewarm water (Never HOT) into slide section and work the slide, rinse and drain. Run lukewarm water through the bell section. Rinse and drain.
Be very careful when using mutes as twisting the mute in the bell may damage the seam. Don’t try too hard with plunger or wah wah mutes as this will dislodge the bell from the slide!
Remove tuning slide and apply a generous amount of tuning slide grease or petroleum jelly to each slide and spread over entire surface. Insert tuning slide completely into receivers and wipe off excess grease with a soft cloth.
Apply a small amount of slide cream to the stockings or apply oil/liquid slide lube to the inner slide top, allowing the oil/lube to run down to the stockings. Spray inner slides with water and work up and down to distribute the cream/oil/lube.
