We love getting great written reviews on our instruments, but we know sometimes our audience just want to hear what the instrument sounds like. We're thrilled Garrath could take the time this summer to record his review of our latest JP Rath collaboration... The JP333 Rath Bass Trombone
Garrath Beckwith started playing at the age of 10 in the heart of the brass band country. He was a member of the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain and has played bass trombone for many of Europe’s leading Brass Bands: Grimethorpe Colliery, Brighouse & Rastrick, and Black Dyke amongst others.
After studying at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, Garrath enjoyed a busy and diverse freelance musical life performing around Europe, Malaysia and the US for world renowned orchestras, big bands, and in show pits and trombone quartets.
Back in the Pennines - where he grew up - Garrath has established a well-respected career in music education; initially teaching brass, but now as the Head of Music in his home town, Saddleworth. He remains an active performer; managing and playing bass trombone for the ensemble Austonley Brass.
