            Comments about Jean Baptiste ST490F Trombone with F Attachment:

            I needed a trombone in Bb so I checked out this model, and was pleasantly surprised I could also play in the key of F as well. That was a huge bonus to me, versatility is a key to my music so the more versatile I can be the better I will be. I love the way this feels in my hand, the F attachment is great, and it has the quality and tone I've come to expect from jean baptiste. Great for beginner or intermediate, if you're in the market for a trombone this would be the one to get!

                    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.

                      This trombone is an excellent value for the student or advanced player looking for a trombone with an F attachment. The trigger operates smoothly and allows the player an extended range. This instrument has a nice, warm tone to accompany the beautiful look of this horn. The included lightweight case makes transportation a breeze while offering good protection.

                            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.
