John Packer JP332O Rath Bb/F Tenor Trombone

Code: 102496

The JP332O Rath Bb/F tenor trombone is well suited to intermediate players and players looking for an instrument to take them up through the grades. This instrument would sit in easily in an orchestral trombone section, and likewise, brass bands and the lower parts in a big band. With an unparalleled level of craftsmanship, the JP332O Rath is the result of many years of development and features some exclusive components that players won't find on other instruments. A custom designed Rath leadpipe was created especially for the JP332O Rath which gives excellent response in all registers whilst retaining support for inexperienced players. The instrument also features an ergonomic thumb lever which is easy to adjust for smaller hands.

Well stated "well suited to intermediate players" is how it is offered. I played Bach 42s for most of my career now. When I found this trombone and played it I very quickly turned to it as my go to Pro trombone. In comparison with Bach trombones it is much more free blowing, the trigger is quicker, and the price is very good for the quality of this instrument. Well it would be a good trombone for an intermediate player, it would be one of the best trombone they could get on the market for the price. I play this trombone in orchestras, brass bands, concert bands, and brass ensembles and it always meets every challenge and need I have in any given piece of of music.

Great Instrument-its made to last

I got my instrument about 8 months ago and it has been amazing. It has a great tone and allows me to have a greater range especially with the lower pitches. So far I have no dents and no major scratches due to its high-grade brass. The case is still in good condition and the straps make it much easier to travel with.
