    Alto Trombone Outfit, Plastic - blue

      The Jiggs p-Bone Mini is an alto trombone version of the popular pBone. Pitched in E-flat like traditional alto trombones, with the requisite shorter slide and smaller bell, the horn serves both as a fun and inexpensive way to learn alto trombone, and also as a way to introduce trombone to small children not yet ready for a full sized B-flat instrument. -cdp

    Says the manufacturer: First there was the Jiggs pBone and all its glorious colors. That same team now brings you the pbone mini, specially designed for the young, beginner player exploring the world of brass. It is a fully functioning, plastic, [alto] trombone pitched in E flat and a fun, cost effective introduction to the world of alto trombones.
    This incredibly light and durable instrument with its special mouthpiece positively encourages young players from their first few notes played, due to the great sound and useful working range they can develop quickly. We created the special pBone mini beginner mouthpiece for 5, 6 and 7 year olds who are having their first experience of brass instruments. One of the things we found in research was that with small kids it's hard for them to generate air pressure and lip tension to cross harmonics up to a concert Bb from an Eb. The pBone Mini mouthpiece was designed with young lips in mind and is smaller than any other modern trombone mouthpiece. It is versatile with any small shank mouthpiece as well, so it is easily added to any jazz instrument collection. The pBone Mini has seven full positions and a great first octave.
