A tenor trombone in Bb made from ABS and glass fibre composite launched in 2010. Originally designed by Hugh Rashleigh of Rashleigh Ltd which is now a part of Warwick Music Ltd, the trombone was designed as a starter instrument but is now widely used. The one-piece bell and gooseneck are made from injection moulded ABS and the slide tube from glass fibre. All materials are more robust than traditional brass and it's low weight and relatively low cost makes the instrument more accessible to those wishing to play. The ergonomic design of the instrument provides a comfortable and effective grip for a wide range of hand sizes and encourages good posture and the correct hand positioning. This example was made in China in 2016 for Warwick Music Ltd. and is complete with textile case, and size 11C mouthpiece and a strap. The pBone is available in a range of colours - black, blue, green, orange, purple, red, white and yellow. The instrument has been developed by Chris Fower and Steven Greenall alongside Hugh Rashleigh and now features a carbon fibre composite slide.
