For what it is...a plastic trombone, I'm very happy!
Just got my new pBone a few hours ago! I'm 53 and have been playing for more than 40 years, and I feel like a kid with a new toy! It is what it is...a plastic trombone, but that being said, I'm very happy with it! Can't beat the price...it's cheap! I wouldn't throw away my Edwards for legit stuff, and don't count on blending well with the section, but I can definitely see myself doing some jazz & rock gigs with it.
Anybody else have problems with their shoulder and neck after long practice sessions? This will definitely give you a little more face time. It's extremely light...And it's CHEAP!!
You won't have to worry aboyt dents and dings. The plastic is very durable. The instrument is very ergonomic (fits well in the hand). Mine is bright yellow.
The mouthpiece isn't too shabby either. I like it better than any mouthpiece that has come with my other instruments. I'm a stainless steel guy, but I'll actually USE this plastic mouthpiece.
What can you loose (did I mention, IT"S CHEAP)? It won't break your budget, and you'll get a kick out of it!
Face it. How many people adore Bill Watrous for his amazing tone (love ya Bill)? No, he just smokes the riffs! You can do that with this horn. Pedal tones are a bit tedious, but who cares...It's CHEAP!!
It is what it is...a plastic trombone. But it assembles hassle-free (just push the hand slide into the goose neck). It fits the hand better than anything I have. It feels surprizingly sturdy. It looks good. It's light weight. The mouthpiece is acceptable. The gig-bag is very funtional, and cased, is quite compact. Ever tried to carry a trombone on a motorcycle? Now you totally can.
Yup, it's well worth the price you'll pay for it! Might even get myself a spare.

The black Pbone plays nice, but it has a little bubble inside the outer slide receptacle, which makes a clicking sound and feeling. Too bad they don't look these things over before they ship. The bubble is hard, so it will be tough to get rid of it. I'll see if the repair guy can fix it before I decide to return it. It looks really understated, as it is almost flat black. The high D really doesn't want to play, and is flat.
The horn sounds really nice, though. I have a blue one that sounds really good, too.

          Comments about Jiggs pBone Plastic Trombone:

          I actually bought this for my son. He's a music ed major at the local university. His main instrument is really trumpet, but he needs to be able to play and teach a variety of instruments. My son is very happy with his P-bone. He says for a plastic horn, it really sounds pretty good. It seems to be well made--but it *is* plastic, so you can't knock it around too much, eh?

          For the money, you'll get a fully functional trombone--without investing a ton of money.

          These "bones" aren't quite as bright sounding as a brass instrument, but the tone is warm & my son said it's easy to play. That's really all he wanted.

              people will say that plastic is inadaqaute for a brass instrument. people gave Buck Owens grief for playing a solid body guitar; its not brass. it does it. I have an old Olds baritone that is heavy (brass) the tone isn't that much different. my only concern is the brass against the fiberglass on the slide (every time I hit the spit valve the discharge is colored with the fiberglass (which means the brass inside the slide is wearing the fiberglass slide)) I'm afraid it'll leak air (the bane of tone production)

                I'm really glad I got this instrument. It's lightness and balance makes it easy to hold and play. It's great for teaching in small studios. Good sound but the slide it a little noisy but they say that the noise will go away with playing the instrument. All in all, a good buy. Very well worth it.

                  Comments about Jiggs pBone Plastic Trombone:

                  I bought this to play in a 70s band with a clip-on mic. I liked the idea of it being lightweight so as to be easier on my back, standing for hours in platform shoes! For this purpose it is good. It definitely plays better with my usual metal mouthpiece. It doesn't project like a brass instrument, so using a mic is quite useful. The water key is leaky, causing drops all over the place. It took a few weeks to break-in the slide, but I am happy with that now. It sometimes plays with a lot of back-pressure, and other times feels like it has an air leak. Plays better in mid and upper registers, lower notes can be tricky.

                  So all-in-all, it's okay. Nice price, fun to play, and gets lots of comments. Saves my back, looks sharp and works fine with a mic. But I won't be selling my brass bones. They are far superior for big band and jazz work, IMO.

                    I thought my trombone playing days were over because I had difficulty loading my King 3B trombone into my car and dragging it up stairs for band practice and performances. The pBone is light weight and easy to carry without a cart. The tone quality is good but it requires more precision of the slide position and lip tension to keep from cracking on some of the tones. The slide is fair but is getting better as I paly the Pbone more. I am nearly 85 years old and hope to be able to play my pBone for another couple of years or so.

                        We gave this instrument to my 5th Grade son for his birthday and he loves it! He can't wait to show it to his fellow music students at school. I already let his music teacher try it out, and she loved it, too!

                        For a plastic product I'm really impressed with the sound and feeling! It's light, comfortable and sounds great! But I would recommend using a metal mouthpiece instead of the included plastic one. I played with my red mouthpiece for a week and when I tried playing in my regular metal mouthpiece I no longer had the wide range I used to have.

                          My kid loved it. He played one at his school band, and is so happy to have his own. The trombone players I have talk to are split on the P-Bone, but all agree it's a perfect choice for a kid! Won't bend or dent, and if you get the warranty, it gets replaced no matter what. Great value and got it quick. Thanks Musician's Friend
