Plastic trombone with special finish.
The advent of extrusion technologies and wild imaginations on the part of musical instrument builders has resulted in the availability of a new generation of plastic construction instruments. The first such instrument to hit the market was a plastic trombone. This is the ATB100M Aere Plastic Trombone, a low-cost alternative to a brass trombone. This is the Custom Series, which features your choice of metallic finishes.
The most important criterion in selecting an instrument is sound quality, and each ATB100M Aere plastic trombone is precision-made to a detailed specification developed through extensive research. The result is a truly responsive instrument suitable for novice and pro players alike.
Made from lightweight super-resilient toughened ABS plastic, Aere instruments are easy to hold and easy to transport, and no more worries about dents and damage.
Allora, maker of exceptional and affordable brass instruments, is now offering a revolutionary design in the form of their AERE Series composite instruments. Developed from durable ABS plastic the AERE trumpets and trombones are lighter and more affordable than their brass counterparts, but still function as truly exceptional and versatile instruments.Like all Allora instruments, the new AERE Series is designed with True Note Technology, combining metal with ABS plastic to create structurally sound instruments with a unique blended brass instrument tone. AERE also benefits from a unique plating process that enables the instruments to radiate with an outstanding metallic finish. From the football field to the concert stage the look of these instruments get almost as much attention as the sound.

Comments about Allora ATB100M Aere Custom Series Plastic Trombone:
First impression: should've spent ten more dollars to get the Etude trombone. Cheap Chinese-made instruments are cheap Chinese-made instruments, but at least the the Etude trombone is actual brass. Now, this is the second horn I've owned, my first being a pBone, so this is also the second plastic horn I've owned. The pros to plastic horns are that they are extremely lightweight, making them a great horn to practice or travel with. They also don't rust or dent like a brass horn would. I bought the metallic plastic Allora for marching band, since a white pBone on the field would really stick out. What I like about the Allora is that it comes with a cleaning kit and a trombone stand, which the pBone doesn't. However, out of the box, the Allora had a few minor blemishes and some careless mistakes in the laquer finish. At the mouth of the bell, you can clearly see this orange paint blending into the metallic paint. It's not that big of a deal, so I chose to ignore it, but it would be nice if Allora would inspect/correct their instruments before shipping them. Also, where the bell and the slide connect, the piece doesn't fit as smoothly as I would like. While it locks tightly, it still shows that you can screw it in more. I tried this, and some of the paint from the lock nut chipped off. Again, I ignored it because beyond bothering me, it's not noticeable to anyone else from afar. As for the sound, I felt that it was really airy in the higher registers, and I had to adjust my embouchure to get a good full sound in the mid to low registers. With any plastic brass instrument, I'd recommend using a brass mouthpiece rather than the plastic ones provided. You're intonation will come out better that way. Compared to the pBone, I feel that the pBone is better made, even if only slightly. One problem I have not yet had with the Allora that I did have with the pBone is "mud" in my slides that no matter how many times I cleaned it would not come out. This "mud" would clog up my slides to the point where no water would come out when I tried to empty the water key, but would then spray out of the water key as I was playing. Hopefully I do not encounter the same problem with this instrument, but only time will tell. All I can say is that it was not love at first sight, so if you're thinking about buying it, don't have unrealistic standards.
