With an unparalleled level of craftsmanship, the JP332 Rath is the result of many years of development and features some exclusive components that players won't find on other instruments. A custom designed Rath leadpipe was created especially for the JP332 Rath which gives excellent response in all registers whilst retaining support for inexperienced players. The instrument also features an ergonomic thumb lever which is easy to adjust for smaller hands. The open-wrap design and counterweight ensure optimum balance and a free blowing low range.

JP332 Rath Review by Simon Cowen - principal trombone of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
It was very clear from first blowing the JP332 Rath trombone that it had a very clear, vibrant and open sound. An exciting colour of sounds throughout the register and a real and rare treat being so open in the trigger register.
I trialed this trombone in the orchestra in various concerts and recordings from Shostakovich to Brahms and the projection was very easily achievable due to the responsiveness of the instrument. I also played the trombone in the brass band and it was here I realized the versatility of the instrument throughout all registers and dynamics.
The most important value is that the JP332 Rath is not out of place among other model trombones within the section, being very easy to blend with.
A very fine model of trombone, perfect for players in whatever field of ensemble. An extremely true and fine blowing trombone suitable for all.
