    Comments about Jean Baptiste ST490F Trombone with F Attachment:

    The 490F trombone is a great step up horn for a student ready to experiment with an F attachment. Besides the F attachment expanding the range of the instrument, the horn has a balanced tone and responds easily. A reliable construction is a plus for the price.

            Comments about Jean Baptiste ST490F Trombone with F Attachment:

            If you have been playing trombone for a while and you are ready to expand your capabilities, this Jean Baptiste trombone is a great choice. The smooth trigger allows you to switch the key of the trombone from Bb to F in an instant. The .525 inch bore, open wrap, and included large shank 12C mouthpiece give you a warm tone with little resistance when blowing. I have played trombone for years and was very impressed at how easily this horn plays and how good it sounds. I would definitely say it's a great buy.

              Comments about Jean Baptiste ST490F Trombone with F Attachment:

              It doesn't happen often that you see a trombone in this price range that includes an F attachment. Perfect for any advancing student who doesn't want to pay the ridiculous prices for the higher end horns, but still wants to step up to a higher quality instrument. With this horn you can really get a full sound with minimal resistance.

                          This trigger trombone is ideal for the beginner or advancing intermediate player. It plays in both Bb and F, and has an incredibly warm tone quality. The trigger moves smoothly and this horn has always been reliable.

                          Great horn that includes a durable, lightweight case and mouthpiece.

                              This Jean Baptiste trombone is a great horn for the price. With the F attachment, it expands the range and use of the instrument, giving it even better tone and ease of playing. I would recommend this horn for anyone looking to get an F attachment trombone and doesn't want to spend all of the money on a more common brand,
