For Immediate Release
Conn-Selmer proudly introduces the highly anticipated extension in their pBone line: the pBone Mini
First there was the Jiggs pBone and all its glorious colors. That same team now brings you the pbone mini, specially designed for the young, beginner player exploring the world of brass. It is a fully functioning, plastic, pitched in Eb trombone and a fun, cost effective introduction to the world of alto trombones.
This incredibly light and durable instrument with its special mouthpiece positively encourages young players from their first few notes played, due to the great sound and useful working range they can develop quickly. “We created the special pBone mini beginner mouthpiece for 5, 6 and 7 year olds who are having their first experience of brass instruments,” stated Chris Fower, Managing Director of pBone in a recent interview. He goes on to say, “One of the things we found in research was that with small kids it’s hard for them to generate air pressure and lip tension to cross harmonics up to a concert Bb from an Eb.” The pBone mini was designed with young lips in mind and is smaller than any other modern trombone mouthpiece. It is versatile with any small shank mouthpiece as well, so it is easily added to any jazz instrument collection. The pBone mini has seven full positions and a great first octave.
The pBone mini could very well be the cutest trombone in the world! It is available in Blue and Red. The Jiggs pBone is available in 7 color varieties: Orange (new!), Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, White and Purple. Both versions are sold with a bag and strap.
