The Blessing BTB-1287C student trombone is thoughtfully designed for those just setting out on their musical journey. Each individual feature serves to increase the lifespan of the instrument, which fortifies its standing as one of Blessing’s top-selling Standard Series instruments. Chrome plating adds additional strength to the interior of its delicate, nickel handslide, and a glossy, clear lacquer finish prevents undesirable tarnishing so students can rest assured in knowing that they can play often and without excessive fear of damage. Likewise, teachers and parents will benefit from fewer trips to the repair shop! Included with the BTB-1287C are a versatile Blessing 12C mouthpiece and a C1287TB thermoplastic case, both of which aid and maintain the student’s musical progress.
