A carbon-neutral trombone

The lightweight design of pBone doesn't just make it an ideal fit for beginner brass players: it's part of what makes it sustainable too.

Like all of our pInstruments, pBone is carbon-neutral and easily recyclable, and a lighter instrument means a smaller carbon footprint than traditional trombones. Our ABS design also requires fewer emissions than manufacturing brass instruments, and we are committed to offsetting our additional carbon.
