    Comments about Jiggs Mini pBone Plastic Trombone:

    Way back, I used to play trombone, the standard Bb tenor size. I've been meaning to get back into it, and I was also curious about the sound of the alto trombone. This is a joy to play, for all that I have to build my embouchure back up (and even tighter, for the higher range). Once I get a feel for where all of the (foreshortened) positions are, I'm going to start jamming with some jazz music that generally features an alto saxophone.

      Comments about Jiggs Mini pBone Plastic Trombone:

      The mini PBone is a kid-friendly, plastic alto trombone. As a music educator, I've found it difficult to recruit kids to play low brass instruments, but the PBone's lightweight plastic design makes it easier for kids to hold up, and therefore, easier to play. It is a plastic instrument, so it's not quite as resonant as a metal instrument, but it's a fair trade-off given the low price and the fact that you don't have to worry about dents or putting on slide lubrication. The slide action is not smooth, but for a student instrument, it's satisfactory for doing the job. For experienced players, it's also a cheap way to learn the alto trombone, without investing 5 times as much money for a metal alto. Overall, the PBone a great value for the money as long as you manage your expectations, that this is meant to be a student instrument.

        Never mind the the other person's comment. this is an alto horn NOT a Soprano. yes it is a toy but it is a great cheap alto horn to use as a practice alto trombone rather then having an actual alto.

          Have two mini's: pocket and slide trumpets. The bBone mini can't compare to the soprano trombone (slide-trumpet) that cost roughly twice as much. The pBone mini has no volume and NO resonance - it is a toy, at best. The bigger brother might play Okay, this one will hang on the wall as a novelty item. Save your money for a REAL trombone.
