It is fun and I find that I can either play music as if I am playing a B flat trombone (same slide positions) and everything comes out a 4th above, or with some mental effort I can play the real notes written which makes me use different slide positions.
when the pbone mini arrived, it's cardboard box felt like it was empty! It's that lightweight, easily carried by a 5yrs old's pinkie, without breaking a sweat.
I got the blue one, because i found it less intrusive.
i know they make them for kids, but i would have preferred a white, yellow, orange, or black one instead.
I never have played any brass instrument before, and the last trumpet i blew through, it sounded like a cow mooing...
This trombone out of the box was great to learn the base octaves on. I've learned embouchure in one day, and was able to form a relatively steady tone within the first 1.5 hours of arrival of the instrument (granted, i have some skills I took from saxophone).
I found that the second and especially third octave was much harder to play.
By default, the instrument is not very loud, but I've been able to get some brassy sounds out of it that would be loud enough to play in a band; though playing that loud would be torture on the lips.
the higher the notes, the harder it is to get the volume evened out with the lower notes.
It's not an easy instrument, and sometimes the note drops a 5th or 6th note when sliding, probably due to my bad embouchure control.
I haven't tried another mouthpiece on it yet, than the stock one, but the stock one works somewhat ok...
All in all its a fun way to start playing the trombone, but I would recommend to start with the full size for adults instead.
It doesn't come with grease, and chain lube doesn't work very well on it. Out of the box, i think the mini could use some grease, as there is some resistance felt when sliding.Read more ›
I found the instrument to be of reasonable quality, aside from intonation issues.
The mouthpiece might be replaced with a regular small tenor mouthpiece, which I did after trying the plastic mouthpiece that came with it.

The alto pBone has been fun to mess about with. It seems to sound somewhat better with a brass mouthpiece. Read morePublished 22 months ago by R. Dary
I didn't see it was "mini" when I ordered, but that's not the worst. It is in a different key than the standard size trombones.Published on February 8, 2014 by Troy Warner
