Jiggs pBone - The Plastic Trombone
Designed in the UK for brass players by brass players, the Jiggs pBone is a fully functioning, medium bore Bb tenor trombone.
The fun and hard-wearing Jiggs pBone comes in a smart carry bag along with a mouthpiece. The pBone is a truly authentic musical instrument that has already started to revolutionize the way we think about trombones and brass instruments.
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!
- Durable - pBone is remarkably tough. It can take knocks and bumps in its stride. The pBone is therefore perfect to allow beginners to explore the trombone without any fear of damage.
- Accessible - At less than half the weight of a brass trombone the pBone is ideal for the younger player and for all those who may have difficulty with the weight and balance of a metal trombone.
- Slide - The composite slide tubes lap in over time so the slide gets better and better with use. The unique strength of the glass fibre material means that “dings and dents” in your slide are a thing of the past!
- Mouthpiece - The pBone has a specially designed mouthpiece. It has a small shank that matches standard medium bore trombones so any regular small shank metal mouthpiece will fit.
- Water key - Amongst the many unique design features we thought long and hard about pBone has its own unique water key design.
- Lockable slide - pBone has a lockable slide that features a graphic to ensure the locking process is clear and simple to all.
