This student trombone was developed by John Packer, in collaboration with Michael Rath from England. Designed at the drawing board in England, but produced in China. As a result, they have managed to keep the price relatively low, affordable enough for the novice trombone player. The JP JP231RATH has an easy response and an all-round sound. So you are always in the right place. The slide is sturdy, yet has a very smooth action.
The JP231RATH has a unique and exclusive Micheal Rath lead pipe and is made from 80:20 brass. More expensive trombones are also manufactured from this. It features an 8 "bell and a medium .525 bore to provide standard players with projection and superior articulation across the range. All in all, a spectacular trombone for the student!
The JP JP231 RATH Trombone comes with a luxury case from JP and a matching JP606 mouthpiece.
