Overview of the Tromba Trombone

Quality Design if You Are On a Budget

The quality design for the Tromba trombone has made it a very ideal choice for most budget buyers but how good is it? Can it compare with some of the major brass brands in the market? Well to be fair there is so much the Tromba Trombone brings to the table but even then, it may fall short in some respects compared to brass trombones. However, not everyone can afford a brass trombone and as such, it is a very good option for players.

Innovative Construction

The sound quality is very good and in fact it actually matches some of the top brass trombones in the market at the moment. Additionally, the innovative construction used on the trombone offers better strength and durability especially for a plastic trombone. In addition to great sound, the durability the trombone offers is also quite good. The high grade ABS used to build the trombone ensures you get good service for a long time and the fiberglass hand slide will not disappoint.

Pros

  • High quality sound.
  • The 8.5” bell ensures you get a versatile symphonic sound with the 500” bore making intonation remarkable.
  • Offers potential players a low-cost and highly affordable option to get impeccable sound quality.
  • An innovative slide lock ring that prevents the fiberglass slide from falling off.
  • Comes with a carrying case and a 12 C plastic mouthpiece.

Cons

  • Although for a plastic trombone the Tromba Trombone has done well to offer reasonable durability, it is still nowhere near the strength brass trombones offer.

Customer Reviews

Amazing sound for the material and price!...

‘’It isn't quite the same as a metal instrument, but it sounds darn good! So lightweight that my daughter with scoliosis has no problem carrying it back and forth to school daily.’’

Summary

The Tromba Trombone is a low cost trombone that comes with so many good benefits. While it is of course not as good as the big name brass trombones out there, for students and other players who cannot afford the high end trombones the Tromba Trombone will surely come handy. The only challenge is that you will need to handle it very carefully. Other than that, the trombone should be a serious consideration for anyone. Remember you also get a quality carrying case and a plastic mouth piece as part of the low cost so it’s really good value for money. The Tromba Trombone is definitely highly recommended for any player whether a beginner or a professional.

 

Based on the innovative construction and design, it is worth 5 stars.
