Buying a Trombone

Post by Pikachokes » Sat Aug 27, 2011 11:38 pm

Hello everyone! I have been playing for my 5th year now and was wondering about Trombones. i have been looking into buying a new professional trombone for college. I am thinking it mostly for jazz and concert but still not sure which of the two. If anything mostly concert but i am not sure.

Price range? A high quality professional Trombone will set you back a couple of thousand. So, we need to know more about what your looking for. Is an F attachment important? What make/model horn do you play now? Glad to help with more information.

Fiberglass... ick.

I play a brass sousaphone. I once had to play a fiberglass one. No comparison whatsoever.
