Our price: £925 Free UK Shipping
The JP332RATH large bore (.547") Bb/F trombone is the latest in a line of collaborations with trombone guru Michael Rath. Michael has put many years of experience into the design of the leadpipe, the operation of the valve and the methods of construction. The custom designed leadpipe gives excellent response in all registers while retaining support for inexperienced players. The ergonomic thumb lever is easy to adjust for smaller hands and the closed-wrap design and counterweight ensure optimum balance and enable younger players to retain good posture beyond 4th position. This instrument sets new standards in the intermediate market and beyond.
4Barsrest.com Review Stephen Sykes, tenor trombone soloist
"The large bore version (0.547) of the 331 offers an ideal alternative for a student who really wants an instrument that can be exploited to its limits.
As with the 331, it comes with fully adjustable trigger mechanism, compact closed wrap design, razor sharp trigger, slick slide action and high-class build quality.
In addition it produces a lovely rich, well-centred tonality, a dark plumby sound and super intonation in both Bb and F guises throughout the range.
There is a maturity about this instrument that rewards a serious minded player – and it was hard to find the tiniest of faults with it, especially as the build quality and the finish is so good.
For the serious college student in particular it provides everything they need, and comes at a price that is hard to beat too."
