SKU: N/A Categories: , Tags: , , ,


The JP236RATH 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. Designed in collaboration with Michael Rath, one of the UK’s finest trombone designers and manufacturers, The JP236RATH Alto Trombone is lightweight, free blowing and consistent across all registers, a hurdle which most lower priced alto trombones fall at. The instrument is rich in features and with a high level of specification enables players of all ages to become familiar with the 7 slide positions. An exclusively designed Rath leadpipe delivers professional level sound and the instrument’s exceptional build quality is sure to inspire students to develop their playing further.

The JP236RATH Alto Trombone Eb is constructed from high grade 80:20 brass throughout and features a .481″ bore ensuring it is free-blowing across the whole register. It also features a 7″ bell enabling greater sound projection.

The JP236RATH Alto Trombone Eb is supplied with a JP606 mouthpiece and lightweight case. The case is well designed to be robust yet lightweight and to provide as much protection to your instrument as possible. It is equipped with backpack straps and a comfortable should strap as standard and also includes a small storage pocket accessible from the outside suitable for storing small accessories and sheetmusic.

Manufactured to a high quality standard as is expected with all JP Instruments, The JP236RATH Alto Trombone Eb is guaranteed for 12 months against faulty manufacturing or materials and is fully tested prior to sale.

Jo Hirst, principal trombone for Tongwynlais Temperance
“The JP236 Rath Alto Trombone is a mid-range trombone, which provides a credible alternative to professional alto trombones. The main positive is the sound quality of the instrument, which is consistent across all registers, particularly the low registers that have a tendency to be quirky on many alto trombones. This is definitely a quality instrument for the price”
