    Trombone Outfit, Plastic - red

      The NEW Jiggs Whigham p-Bone brings a fun and intriguing twist to the traditional trombone. With its plastic construction, this lightweight instrument sounds remarkably like typical brass trombones. - the manufacturer

      Folks, I tried one of these at the ITF in Nashville. They're lightweight, well balanced and easy to play. They have a black fiberglass slide with brass stockings and as such are different than anything else around. They don't need to be lubricated though it is said that Slide-O-Mix Rapid Comfort might enhance the action. The slides are a bit rough at first, but once they are properly run in, they improve markedly. The horn sounds like a trombone, with a "plastic" coloring to the sound as you might imagine. Many others who tried the horn were impressed with its sound, ease of playing and intonation. Here are the stats:

    • 0.500 bore.
    • 8.25 inch bell.
    • "Mark II" model with stronger one-piece bell.
    • Clear plastic 12C-ish mouthpiece (approx 24.55mm cup diameter).
    • Movable main tuning slide (imagine that!).
    • Metal counterweight for balance.
    • Fiberglass inner & outer slide tubes.
    • Brass slide stockings.
    • Ergonomic handgrip.
    • Weighs about 1-3/4 pounds (800 grams).
    • Black nylon O-style "gig" bag.
