Customer Reviews

  • Author: Stephen Sykes - 2009 Radio 2 Best Young Brass Soloist
    "The entry level model of the range is a medium bore Bb trombone (.500) that has a 7.5” bell, and comes with a lead-pipe has been specifically designed by Michael Rath to enhance the basic simple design layout.

    It’s the key to the instrument for me, allowing greater freedom for the player to push air through the instrument without experiencing a feel of tiring resistance.

    The narrow slide is excellent – really slick and responsive, and the instrument is well balanced too – not over-heavy in the bell, which can lead to young (and especially small) players developing a poor embouchure and posture.

    It’s very well put together: Rath has kept a keen eye on the build quality, whilst the input with the lead-pipe gives a free blowing well-centred tone and good intonation throughout the range.

    The real bonus for me though was that it was an ideal instrument for jazz playing – light, facile and precise and with just enough cutting edge to force through even a heavy sounding accompanying brass band!

    It comes in a very good lacquer finish and with a mouthpiece (although your own would be the best bet) whilst the lightweight case offers plenty of protection and straps that mean it can be carried to and from school or college with ease.

    It’s a great instrument for a young player with serious ambitions about the trombone as their long term brass instrument of choice."
