Extendabone Trombone Slide Extender
Extendabone is an affordable solution to the age-old arm length problem plaguing trombonists around the world. This ingenious product allows even the smallest player to be more successful with their intonation on the instrument. Students who feel more successful, have more fun, and are more likely to stick with it.
Whether it’s learning to ride a bike or reaching something from a high shelf, it’s normal to need a little help as we grow and learn a new skill. The trombone isn’t any different. Learning to tame this beast of an instrument is a struggle. the smaller size of young students doesn’t need to make it harder. Just as most children grow out of using a stepstool to brush their teeth or wash their hands, most students will grow out of using Extendabone. But for those of us who still use a stepstool for the highest shelves in the kitchen, it’s a good thing Extendabone is for players of all ages!

Sustainable Product and Packaging
When it came time to manufacture Extendabone, the inventor Nikki Abissi wanted to follow her beliefs first, and then make the numbers work. Extendabone is manufactured in Paterson, New Jersey, USA out of 100% recycled plastic.
Creating a product also means creating packaging. She didn’t want to add to the landfills but also knew that packaging was necessary. The Extendabone’s plastic bag is made out of cellophane, which is a plastic created from cellulose (plants). It is completely home compostable, so no need to feel bad about putting it in the trash!
The header tag is printed on recycled paper from a company in California with a similar passion for sustainability. The ink is soy-based, so the header tag can also go in the compost bin as well as the trash. Small choices can make big changes!
