Selecting the Right Student Trombone

Probably one of the most fun instruments from a distance, is the Trombone. The sliding mechanism on a trombone plus the sound, and the animated musicians often shown in a Jazz performance, are just some of the reasons the trombone is a popular with beginning band students. If you yourself are interested, or your son or daughter is interested in getting started to play the trombone, you'll want to steer clear of "knock off" manufacturers. Often times to the eye, an instrument may look great, however the sound or ability to stand up to normal wear will not be present. Band Directors generally have a preferred list of trombones for students to choose from. After 30+ years as music educators ourself, and working with music educators and band directors, we have come up with our recommended list of beginner trombones.

New Artists such as Trombone Shorty, Rebirth Brass Band, and Big Sam all have significantly breathed new life into the trombone as an instrument. Their New Orleans style, paired with their sound, energy, entertainment and fan following, have raised the awareness of this brass instrument. Besides New Orleans, one of the instrumental commonalities between these artists, is the fact that they all exclusively play on B.A.C. or Best American Craftsman trombones.
