CONN Pbone plastic trombone -- officially endorced by jiggs whigham!
What is a pBone?
pBone is the world’s first plastic trombone; it's a lot of fun but also a quality instrument, perfect for beginners and professionals.
The Jiggs pBone is a fully functioning, medium bore Bb tenor trombone.
This is the heart and soul of trombone playing. Take a relaxed deep breath and blow out through your lips.
Buzz & Play
With the mouthpiece in the middle of your lips, create a hole in your lips and blow air through it. If you slowly make the hole smaller as you blow the buzz will begin! Add the mouthpiece to pBone and repeat the process to make your first sounds.
Used by Professionals
The fun and hard-wearing Jiggs pBone comes in a smart carry bag along with a mouthpiece. Designed in the UK for brass players by brass players, pBone is distributed worldwide by Conn-Selmer, makers of the finest trombones.
The pBone is a truly authentic musical instrument that has already started to revolutionize the way we think about trombones and brass instruments.
pBone is remarkably tough. It can take knocks and bumps in its stride. The pBone is therefore perfect to allow beginners to explore the trombone without any fear of damage.
At less than half the weight of a brass trombone the pBone is ideal for the younger player and for all those who may have difficulty with the weight and balance of a metal trombone.
The composite slide tubes lap in over time so the slide gets better and better with use. The unique strength of the glass fibre material means that “dings and dents” in your slide are a thing of the past!
We have designed a mouthpiece especially for the pBone. It has a small shank that matches standard medium bore trombones so any regular small shank metal mouthpiece will fit.
Amongst the many unique design features we thought long and hard about pBone has its own unique water key design.
pBone has a lockable slide that features a graphic to ensure the locking process is clear and simple to all.
