I recently purchased one of these horns, and will readily say that it is a very playable horn, despite not being brass. It is extremely lightweight and the upper register (C and up) responds very well. My only real problem with the sound is the pedal tones. I HIGHLY recommend using your brass mouthpiece with it, as this GREATLY improves the sound. The slide is noisy, but has already begun to run in after about two weeks, and moves very freely. I love playing this horn at sporting events and outside, and the color is a nice effect (mine is blue). I don't have to worry about denting the slide, or lubricating it. Overall, anyone who is willing to experiment and try something new should get one of these, as they're a LOT of fun.
HOWEVER, if you buy a pBone expecting it to sound like your Strad, it's obviously not going to. Why? Because.......
a) It's not a Strad, and
b) It's not brass
This is a really great trombone. Whenever people saw it they had to hear it and every time they were all surprised. It sounds just like a brass trombone. The only differences are it's somewhat quieter and when you're trying to play loud it doesn't quite have that brassy sound to it. I'm in the Michigan Tech Pep Band so I got the yellow trombone and it stands out quite a bit from the rest. You can't beat the price, either. I would recommend this to beginning trombone players or anyone wanting to stand out in the trombone section.
It's a plastic trombone. It is not going to play the same, blend the same or perform the same as a real trombone made by a real brass company. It's an instrument shaped object. I will never allow these in my classroom.
This is one amazing instrument as a professional, i think the pianissimo and fortissimo dynamics and the range(in the upper register is astounding). i live for jazz therefore this pbone was an amazing dream come true. however i love as a bass trombonist i love pedal tones and other lower ranges(even in my jazz i use pedal tones like marshall gilkes). this horn even with a metal mouthpiece is fighting low register. i would suggest all jazz playing bass tbones should buy this for one half of their spirit and keep the bass trombones to satisfy the other half.
I found the key points of other reviews to be accurate, i.e. it is good for what it is, a plastic trombone, and it is not by any means the equivalent of brass. The information with the horn said the slide would break in over time but it never did work in for me and I found it to be incredibly stiff. I also found the instrument to be quite a bit less responsive than brass in the lower register. Net is that it's a nice novelty and I can imagine it as very nice for a high school student playing cold weather football games, but for regular outdoor concert work, it just doesn't quite make the grade.
I recently tried a pBone at college pep band gig. I was very impressed! It's light as a feather and, with a metal mouthpiece, sounds good throughout most of the instrument's range The sound breaks down a bit in the the extreme upper and lower registers. Perfect for the beginning trombonist or for marching bands and other outdoor playing situations.
Tried one of these at ITF in Nashville - sound is surprisingly in most of the range, begins to weaken above g4. Bought a blue one and I've played it in my dixieland and polka band.
To the guy that said he would never let one in his classroom: Man, I'm glad you weren't my band director! I assume if Bones Malone or Jiggs Whigham walked in, you'd kick them out?! What a downer!!
I am a teacher and professional trombone player and I have given this horn a good work out with different mouthpieces. The high range on this horn sounds very comparable to a brass trombone, however, the low range is much more stuffy and difficult to play and the slide was very difficult past 4th position. Again, I am a teacher and will not allow these in my class because these low notes are the first they learn. They need as good a chance as they can get so they learn as easily as possible and don't get frustrated. Also, if it cracks or breaks, there is no way to repair the instrument that I know of. And living in a cold climate, and given the warning about extreme temperatures given with the instrument, I don't want to put my students and families in a position where they have just wasted money on a horn they can't fix. If you already play the trombone and want a unique, fun, cool toy, albeit, a really good sounding toy, for a parade or pep fest, by all means buy it. If you are looking for an instrument to start a beginner on, I would steer clear.
If you are in a marching band, and you play trombone, you need this horn. It's 2 pounds! I march every year in some long (and short) parades, and I have never felt better at the end of the parade. The sound is just fine; you do want to upgrade the mouthpiece for a better tone, but I didn't hear any complaints from the 20 other trombones with me (some of whom also had P-Bones!). I have also played in a duet with a trumpet, and people couldn't believe the sound. And, one of the best parts: it got knocked over a couple of times...no dents!!! I do wish that they will come up with a lyre one of these days, but the clamp-on ones work fine.
