“The release of the JP231 Rath trombone, without being over dramatic, is a godsend. The build quality and craftsmanship, for an instrument aimed at the student market, is exceptional. The Rath 231 has a medium large bore with an 8 inch bell which enables the instrument to be applied in many situations and whilst this instrument is mainly aimed at the student market, I would have no qualms about using it for lighter, chamber or solo performances myself. “John Packer’s collaboration with Michael Rath has produced an instrument which is resilient, well made for the price, easy blowing and affordable! What more could a trombone student – or teacher - ask for! Bravo Packers and Rath!”
