I'll search the 'spare' mouthpiece box in the Bandroom tonight, see if I can find something then.
My blue one arrived today.....what fun!
I just got my purple one, Check it out!
Plays like a dream! the only bad side is that the slide is very noisy but its still very easy to move.
It is really really light and seems very durable.
Just to digress slightly.....This one is not light or durable but wow what skill, and what a result!
I see people are now cashing in on ebay.....someone's listed one for £150! Worth the wait though, it's a fine piece of kit for the money.
Looking to buy a pbone 2nd hand excellent condition. Anyone got one they are willing to sell. It is for one of our good friends in Hungary
New ones are £89 from Packers, if that's any use?
Noting that those are not "pBone"s, but something very similar made for Packers.
Thanks for the help guys! I have spoken to my friend in Hungary and he is looking to buy a yellow one and it has to be the pBone brand. I will look into the Packers one though. x
The Pbone website suggests they have them in stock in yellow.
The ones in Packers look identical to the Pbone in the pictures. Not seen them in the flesh though.
So Packers have seen something succesful and then produced their own version?
Stick to the Pbone - it has the pedigree
After trying several, I am must say that I do not share in the enthusiasm for this product.
On the very rare occasion that we have a nice summer, do they go soft ?
I've noticed Hayes Music are selling these Tromba ones too, has anyone tried this one against the pBone?
Just want to add my review.
I tried a Pbone recently and like most people was very surprised at its playability and 'trombonyness'
Trombone is not my first instrument but I can appreciate the difference between plastic and brass.
No doubt a brass trombone is superior, however, at the lower and of the market a Pbone is a near match.
Its perfectly priced, just right.
In the hands of a good player you could easily win a slow melody contest on one of these !
Compare brass to plastic side by side though and the brass is more complex in tone.
Will be a fine choice for soul bands when miked up.
GREAT for kids. Ideal choice for junior banding !
I can't stop chuckling at this post - it's been a long day and this made me smile. Thank you Mr Roberts!
what's good for the slides?
Info on the pBone website talks about letting them bed in and the scratchiness wearing off with use, but is there anything apart from water that will help it along?
I wonder if silicon spray would do?
I bought one for my 6year old and can testify to their robustness as he has thrown it in anger a couple of times and it still works as new.
