Customer Reviews

    "The valves in the JP331 Rath are fantastic."
  • Author: Stephen Sykes, 2009 Radio 2 Best Young Brass Soloist
    "The JP331 RATH offers the Bb/F combination that is becoming increasingly the popular instrument of choice for young trombonists both in the UK and abroad.

    This is where Rath’s experience comes into its own for me – with an instrument that is so well designed and put together that it is hard to think of anything in the same class for the money.

    The medium large bore (.525") offers real flexibility throughout the range, a classic well rounded, fully centred tone and great intonation in both the Bb and F guises.

    It’s the design, with young student player in mind that impresses most however.

    Rath have really put in the hours in the workshop to make sure all the elements blend together to enhance the playing experience.

    The trigger mechanism is lightning fast, whilst the adjustable thumb lever is a real bonus – ensuring that even the smallest of hands can work the mechanism in comfort.

    The slide has a real slick feel, whilst the warp around design for all the plumbing behind the player’s head has been neatly compacted and expertly balanced with the counterweight. It really does ensure good posture and embouchure even from the smallest of performers.

    It’s a really responsive instrument that gives so much back to a player willing to work it hard and with its lightweight case it doesn’t break you back (or your student bank balance) either."
