    Comments about King 2102L Jiggs Whigham Trombone:

    The first horn I reviewed was a mistake by the factory. The bell was too thin. Thin as a pop can. They replaced my horn and it plays great. Unfortunately the too thin bell played even better but after 6 months it would have been in bad shape.

    Comments about King 2102L Jiggs Whigham Trombone:

    I have played a 2B light weight for 30 years. this horn was made with a very thin bell. It will dent if you touch it hard with your finger. The .491 slide is excellant. I played on a dual bore all these years and what a mistake. the straight bore gives me easier high notes into the Trebel cleff. Other than the too thin bell the horn is a joy to play.

    Comments about King 2102L Jiggs Whigham Trombone:

    I have many tenor trombones and this one is my favorite. It's very light and has a great sound if you're using a mic. If you're in a big band or competing with a loud trumpet section and you don't have a mic on your horn, you might prefer a 3B or at least a 2B+, maybe a heavier horn with a larger bore that you can push more. But if you just fill this horn with enough air without overblowing you'll get a great sound with fast response. It's sort of like driving a small sports car, fast and responsive and you can do a lot with it. In that way it brings out the best in your playing. In an orchestral situation it's probably not the best for blending with larger bore and louder horns. Once again, it's better for jazz soloing or on mic playing. I guess it depends on how you are going to use it but I absolutely love the horn for my needs. The other reviewer got a lemon and you always have to watch quality control these days. If you get one, try it out and look it over thoroughly. At least Musician's Friend has a great try out period with money back guarantee.

    Disappointed King T-Bone Player

    By JN-39XcK

    from Texas

    Comments about King 2102L Jiggs Whigham Trombone:

    I had owned an earlier version of this horn that was severely damaged in an accident. The earlier serial numbered horn was excellent. Insurance replaced the horn which I ordered from Musicians Friend. Musicians Friend did an excellent job of filling the order.My issue deals with the quality control of the manufacturer. The slide came bowed from the factory and the bell started to flake the plating off. I have taken it to an authorized repair center who identified the issue as the flux from soldering was not properly cleaned before plating. I have tried to contact King - Conn-Selmer on fixing this but have not received a response back.I have played King T-bones all my life and never had a desire to switch, but now I am thinking of going with the Martin - Urbie Green model.
