pBone Trombone (Various colours available)
We are proud to announce that the Symphony Hall Gift Shop is the only Birmingham-based supplier of these new and remarkable instruments! The pBone, which was famously played by Mumford & Sons at Glastonbury Festival, has the following features:
- 8-inch Bell
- Weighs 1.8 pounds
- Fabric carry bag
- Lockable slide
- Pitched in Bb
- Water key
- Plastic Material
- 9 colours available
- 11c small shank pBone
The pBone has been thoughtfully designed to allow hands of various shapes and sizes to find a comfortable and effective grip of the instrument. This encourages good posture and the correct hand positioning. The ergonomic features of the pBone allow those with limited or restricted use of their hands and arms to engage with the trombone.
All ABS parts are extremely durable and our unique one-piece bell and gooseneck design is extraordinarily strong. The glass fibre slide tube is immeasurably stronger than fragile brass tubing and will withstand collisions that would demolish a traditional brass trombone slide. pBone may not be indestructible but it is certainly the most durable and robust trombone ever produced!
pBone is available in an array of bright and bold colours making it attractive to younger players. Beginners can leap into the playing experience without the usual concerns about mishandling or damaging a traditional brass instrument. So let the fun begin!
What about all the places you can take a pBone that you would never take an expensive brass instrument? We’ve already seen pBones on bicycles, on the ski slope, on the beach and even high on a trapeze. The only limit is your imagination!
