The pBone plastic trombone has been making the rounds in high schools and colleges across the US. Backed by British trombone soloist, bandleader, and educator Jiggs Whigham, it’s available in a wide variety of school colors. These trombones make marching less a chore and more fun, and can inexpensively add new sounds to your next gig.
The Meinl Journey Djembe’s synthetic head and shell make them 20% lighter and easier to carry than wood models. Plus, they hold up against the elements, making them the perfect hand percussion for travel and outdoor gigs. Pitch is easy to adjust through a mechanical tuning system. They are available in brightly colored Kenyan Quilt (pictured) or Pharoah’s Script patterns.
