The JP332ORath represents John Packer's flagship open wrap large bore trombone designed and manufactured in collaboration with Michael Rath, one of the UK's leading trombone specialists. The JP332O 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 JP332O 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 enable younger players to retain good posture beyond 4th position.
The JP332O Rath features a large bore (.547") providing players power and projection in symphonic works whilst it's 8.5" bell gives even greater sound projection that it's smaller brother, the JP331 Rath. High Grade 80:20 brass is used in construction throughout.
