Product details

Suitable for

The JP236 alto trombone is the perfect starter for you, if you are an orchestral musician starting to explore the world of alto trombone playing.

Some will say that it is the perfect starter model to train players to use all 7 trombone slide positions, although we would suggest talking to a teacher before choosing this as a beginner trombone, due to being in the key of Eb.

The JP236 Rath Eb Alto Trombone follows in the footsteps of previous JP Rath instruments which pushed the boundaries of what was thought possible in the development of student friendly instruments.

  • Amazing

    By: ,

    This is simply Amazing. I own a Conn 36H and that is well worth the money I spent on it. Obviously, this is not as good as a 36H, but at about a 6th of the price its worth it. Its lightweight, it blows beautifully, it's as good as Yamaha Altos and it is an absolute steal. I would recommend this over the 136 any day, the case and bits are great. It's absolutely worth it, and I would be happy to buy more JP Rath products in the future !!!
