Hi all. I bought this trombone a couple of months ago and I must say, what a fantastic trombone. I have played a fair few trombones in my time and this rivals the 1980's king 3B that I played before I sold it when moving onto tuba about 10 years ago. Although it is sold as a student instrument, if you like medium bore trombones, I think that you would love this one! Well made and a great slide! The only possible quibble I would have is not about the actual trombone. It is sold with a 12c mouthpiece (I guess because it is a student trombone) but I find this a little small. Maybe they could give you a couple of options e.g. 12 c 6 1/2 al etc. I may not be the best trombonist in the world, but I love playing it and it makes me sound not too bad! I am even now selling my getzen custom Jazz tombone! Anyone else played one? Any thoughts on mouthpiece choice for it?
