The trombone is an instrument that needs no introduction. It's been part of the musical landscape for centuries, and it features prominently in the most legendary compositions ever written. Even by brass standards, the trombone is downright venerable - and we wouldn't have it any other way. Of course, plenty of tweaks, changes and alternative designs have graced this instrument over the years, and that's given us a modern lineup of trombones filled with all kinds of different options to suit any player from the aspiring beginner to the seasoned pro. So buckle up and take a tour through the trombones in this section; there's a good chance your next instrument is waiting here to be found.
Maybe you're trying to decide whether to pick up the trombone, and interested in a low-risk option for sampling the instrument? If so, you might be interested to learn about composite models like the Allora ATB100 Aere Series Plastic Trombone. Yes, you read that right - and although it's made of plastic, this trombone is anything but a toy. First and foremost, it's an incredibly lightweight instrument at a fraction of the price of a brass trombone, and it's virtually immune to scratches and dents. Those perks make it the perfect introductory instrument to work out the kinks before moving on to a more advanced model.
Speaking of advanced models, the choices you'll find in this section run all the way up to the professional level. There's the Bach 36B Stradivarius Series Trombone, for instance, and the specially-designed Bach 50A Series Bass Trombone with Hagmann Valve. Are you a jazz musician, or just like the idea of a trombone that plays trumpet-style? In that case, don't miss the valve trombones. And if you want to play in a marching band, make sure to check out marching models such as the Tama by Kanstul KTN Series Marching Bb Trombone.
There's a lot of choice in the world of trombones, which is what you'd naturally expect from an instrument that's had centuries to evolve and mature. Whether you're interested in testing the waters with one of the top-selling plastic trombones, going flat-out traditional with a classic-style model or trying something purpose-built like a valve or marching trombone, it's safe to say that the best instrument for your tastes is somewhere within these pages.
