The number of children and adults taking brass lessons has exploded in recent years. One reason this may be the case is due to the development of plastic woodwind and brass instruments. Having revolutionised the trombone market with the Bb pBone, Jiggs now bring us the pbone mini. Designed by brass players, for brass players, the Jiggs pBone mini Eb trombone is a lightweight, plastic, fully-functioning alto trombone. Pitched in Eb, the pbone2 weighs less than half the weight of a brass alto trombone, and thus is the perfect instrument for a child for whom a brass instrument may be too heavy, or for players of any age wanting to pick up the trombone for the first time. It is also perfect for adults who used to play in their younger days and want to revisit their playing days but without having to splash out on an expensive trombone.

With a mellow tone which plays and sounds just like its brass counterpart, the pBone mini’s grip is designed for ease of access. As a standard trombone may be a bit of a stretch for smaller hands, Jiggs has created three different possible ways to hold the instrument. These include 'pistol grip’ for good lower arm posture, making it an accessible instrument for players of all ages.

One particular benefit of the pBone is its slide. The composite slide tubes are not only made of a strong and durable fiberglass (thus putting an end to any unwanted dents) but also, due to their design, they even improve over time. The body of the trombone itself is also remarkably strong – you would be hard pressed to dent the bell on this instrument, and indeed pBones can withstand knocks and bumps which would write off a brass instrument – if dropped they simply bounce!

The pBone also has an easy-to-use lockable slide; simply twist into place using the handy diagram on the side of the instrument, and twist back to unlock. This makes it easy for any age of player. Moreover, being made out of plastic, the pBone is easy to clean with soap and warm water, putting a stop to hefty prices for cleaning materials. And as the instrument is easily assembled, it is a great educational tool too!

Most importantly though, the pBone mini is fun . Available in blue and red, these are supplied as an outfit, complete with mouthpiece and carrying case. Why not introduce them to a music class for dynamic and entertaining lesson? Or take one along to your next gig to make you stand out from the crowd.

The pBone mini opens the door for many more people to start their journey into the world of brass for the first time. Now you are all set and ready to go, let the fun begin…
