Applications and Characteristics:

The JP/Rath trombones have generated a lot of positive comments on forum sites and are now in demand across the globe. They are characterised by a professional standard of workmanship and a very high level of performance. They are often compared with professional models. They are priced to compete in the mid range, but perform to a much higher level and compare favourably against the more expensive Yamaha and Conn trombones. These instruments benefit from exactly the same manufacturing processes to slides and bell as Mick Rath's own handmade instruments.
