  • “The pbone is fantastic value for money and really light to hold, making it ideal for young students. The whole idea of it being made of plastic makes it robust than a brass trombone and is less likely to get damaged. It also has the advantage of being in a really small gig bag so is easy to transport and doesn’t take up much space. And of course the choice of colours is really cool”
