I use this trombone mostly for marching bands and gigs where quality is not important as much. It's great for using during the winter, if you play outside a lot, since the material doesn't get cold as fast as traditional brass instrument.
The instrument is very light and easy to handle, easy to carry around. it's perfect for beginners and even professionals.
I'd recommend to use the metal mouthpiece (the one I ordered has small shaft), because the plastic mouthpiece that comes with the instrument is kind of weird at first, and I get a slightly nicer sound when I use the metal mouthpiece.
The instrument came with two mouthpieces - 6 1/2 A and 11C, so you can start playing right away!
I'd also suggest to use some kind of regular slide oil (I use slide-o-mix), because the slide is kind of loud.
Otherwise, great price-performance buy!
