pBone Plastic Mini Trombone - Red
Available in a range of colours at Normans Music Instruments
Following the popularity of the pBone comes pBone Mini, a fully functioning Eb alto trombone constructed from ABS and glass fibre. Like its larger counterpart, the pBone mini is extremely durable and provides an authentic trombone sound. Smaller children who struggle with the weight and balance of a full size metal trombone find the pBone Mini much easier to play.
Ergonomic and Accessible
The pBone Mini weighs less than half that of a metal trombone, making it ideal for younger children who struggle with the weight and balance of full size brass trombone. The pBone’s ergonomic shape promotes goods posture and allows for several left-hand positions. Even the smallest hands can find a comfortable grip on the instrument.
The ABS and fibre glass plastics used to make the pBone Mini are much more robust than that of a brass trombone- the slide won’t dent or ding if knocked. pBone Mini isn’t completely indestructible, but alongside the Jiggs pBone, it’s surely the most durable trombone ever built.
Innovative Design Features
The pBone Mini has a specially designed mouthpiece with a smaller than usual diameter. This facilitates playing a wide range of notes as well as being great for trumpet players who want to play the pBone Mini in order to teach the instrument. The action of the unique fibre glass slide is designed to break in and improve over time. The pBone Mini shares the innovative water key and slide locking mechanism with the original pBone.
Great for Education
Like the Jiggs pBone, the pBone Mini is having a profound effect on teaching brass instruments. The smaller size of the Mini is suitable for children as young as 3 and the bright colour and ease of playing help to engage classes with the trombone like never before.
