i have been renting a plain old Holton trombone for about 3 years now and I'm starting to get sick of it. There's no nifty valves or lightweight slides. it just is a standard trombone. I was looking for a vibrantly colored trombone, or one that isn't the plain old golden brass color. I want something a bit more unique. i've been googling and googling and nothing has come up. does anyone know about a site where I can order a colorful trombone. I don't even need any of the spiffy valves or anything. Just a standard model trombone with a unique coloring. thanks in advance!

There is nothing wrong with a standard trombone, as long as you sound good on it. How you sound is all that counts.

None of the top classical or jazz players play on a "colored" trombone. They make color with the sounds that come out of their horns.

If you want something other than standard yellow brass, save your pennies and buy a Shires or Edwards with a red brass bell.

Hey so i got one of those colored trombones last year. You can get them for like 100 bucks on EBAY. So check this out i play it it sounds good. 6 months ago i take the laquer off and play it the response was great. My opinion....For a hundred bucks you cnat go wrong with one of them. and after a year or 2 if you decide to strip off the laquor and play it but end up screwing it up well your only out 100 bucks.
