What We Say

It's not to write about P Bones without a smile on our face - they're such cool things! 

Ok, so they're a plastic trombone, what's the point of that then? Firstly, they weigh nothing and they're very durable compared to a metal trombone. This has different advantages depending on your perspective. It makes them great for young beginners as they're easy to hold and hard to damage, so if you have a child who's keen to have a go but on the cusp of being too young, a P Bone is a good bridge instrument. It also has a place for more experienced players: what better instrument to take camping for example (the person in the tent next to you might disagree, of course, but they're probably still grateful you didn't bring a ukulele like every other musical person on the campsite!), and P Bones are the ideal take anywhere brass instrument. They're nice and easy to maintain and you run them under the tap to clean if sharing them between multiple players - in fact, you could play one in the bath if you wanted!

They're also very affordable, and the fun factor means they're not obselete the second you graduate to a metal version - the P Bone can remain your out all the time knockaround instrument.

And they sound great! Obviously we're not talking Bach Strad sort of tonal ranges, but up against the average £200 entry level metal trombone the P Bone is perfectly credible. We also notice the mouthpiece makes a big difference, and the single best thing you can do for a P Bone if you're a more experienced player is swap the stock plastic mouthpiece for a metal one for a much more focused, strident tone.

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 straight away: a smart carry bag which is perfect for rushing between lessons/school/band, 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.
