I went to the 2011 ITF in Nashville and saw the Pbone's for the first time. Everyone that tried it came away with a smile on their face. It really plays well for what it is. I had to have one so I placed an order and just got it in September of 2011. I took it to a big band rehearsal and everyone flipped out. I used it on several charts and was amazed at how well it played. Use your own mouthpiece, though, not the plastic one included with the horn. A great horn for jazz if you are not trying to play too loudly. Worth every penny it costs. And, it is so light. It responds remarkably well. It makes my 2B feel like a tank, weightwise. Every trombonist should own one, just for the fun of it. Oh, and by the way, it floats in my pool, too.

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.

Comments about Jiggs pBone Plastic Trombone:

The used pbone I received was a great deal at the price. It was really just like new (including the rough, scratchy slide). ;-) The tone is pleasant but mellow and subdued..I cannot push the volume much, but I didn't expect it to play like my King 2B Legend or Bach 42B. I would skip the included plastic mouthpiece and play it with your favorite small shank. The biggest problem is the slide. The brass stockings must "wear in" the fiberglass outer slide to be smooth. I found that cycling the slide dry repeatedly while squeezing the outer tubes inward and outward helps, but thousands of reps are needed, so be patient. Keep wiping the inner slide with a paper towel and swabbing the outer slide frequently with cheese cloth on a trombone rod to remove the black fiberglass "filings". Repeat the dry lapping until the slide moves freely. This may take a few weeks of intense working the slide. I play it with the slide dry or with a little Yamaha slide lube (gel). When playing, you will still need to wipe the inner slide and swab out the outer slide frequently. Overall, the pbone is lots of fun but with some limitations and break- in needed.

      Comments about Jiggs pBone Plastic Trombone:

      I like the sound and lightness of instrument. It is also a solid instrument. The negative aspect is the you have to jam in the slide part to put the trombone together. Is not a smooth assembly like the Allora. While jamming the parts together you fear breaking it. The slide movement could be smoother, again like the Allora.

        Comments about Jiggs pBone Plastic Trombone:

        At first i was skeptical about how it would sound and how it would hold up. but i bought one to try it out and i am amazingly satisfied it has the same if not a better tone then my brass Yamaha Advantage and its slide moves very fluidly. I would recommend this to anyone especially parents of new musicians who don't want to empty their bank accounts

        Love my pBone

        By 

        from Phoenix, AZ

        Site Member

        Comments about Jiggs pBone Plastic Trombone:

        So, I've had my pBone now for a year and a half. I teach privately and play semi-professionally (I get paid some but not enough to live off). I bought one right after they came out in the US. I first saw it, I didn't expect the playability. I was amazed. The only drawback to the instrument is the mouthpiece. Not worth including in the horn. Toss in a standard metal mouthpiece and it's great to go. The low end is a little iffy, but that is mitigated quite a bit with a good mouthpiece. I do recommend it for beginning students in some cases, let me explain why. The slide requires no care and is pretty durable compared to it's brass brother - I've had so many really young players eat their slides up. It's lightweight - ask me about the slight scoliosis I have from carrying a horn bigger than me to and from school during my growth years. The cost is a low entry point for kids who may not otherwise have an opportunity to have an instrument, not to mention may decide not to keep playing. Kids may use a school horn and have a pBone at home to practice so they don't have to carry a horn back and forth (in addition to backpacks full of books - it's ridiculous the load they have to carry). For older students, a great horn for marching and pep bands (can you say school colors) etc. I like to use it when I play in ska bands (now that they have black and white I may buy both and mix the parts for a two tone horn) - it's durable in a rough environment (I can tell you about the guitar player who knocked over my bone at a gig and I spent the night repairing my horn rather than playing) and is a bit more fun for the audience. It's not a brass horn, and not equivalent to a pro horn, but it's a pretty good replacement for a student horn.

        pBone works like a pro

        By 

        from Jasper

        Site Member

        Comments about Jiggs pBone Plastic Trombone:

        I got this pBone because of all the awesome reviews I have read about it. I use mine in some rehearsels but not all. I always use it in parades (marching) because it is very lightweight. It plays much like a brass one but is much lighter. The only trouble I have is hitting the low and high b. I would not recommend this unless you are experienced with a normal trombone. Also make sure to use your own mouthpiece because it improve the sound by a lot. I am by no means a professional, I am only 12 and I'm currently in my second year of playing.

        A cliean slide will make your pbone fly!

        By 

        from Northern NJ

        Site Member

        Comments about Jiggs pBone Plastic Trombone:

        Some people have complained about the slide. After 2 weeks with a sticky slide I decided to clean it. I wiped the inner slide with an old white tee shirt and it turned black. I then cleaned the inner slide with a flexible trombone snake and small pieces of tee shirt. Black again. I repeated this until the white cotton came out mostly white. Now it is like a different instrument. I don't use any lubricants or water, just my saliva. I use a 7C Bach mouthpiece that gives it a decent range and sound. I noticed it sounds more like a french horn than a brassy trombone but I like it. Don't force a mute into the bell as it might split the bell. People are always asking me about my purple pbone.
