P-bone mini

I got the p-bone mini today.

It really, really feels like a toy.   It is very light.  The mouthpiece weighs next to nothing.

I played it a bit.  I've played an alto trombone before, but I do not know the positions and this will be a project for me.  Initial impressions were good about the sound.  I could really see a lot of high schoolers buying this mini to learn alto.   Of course there isn't too much demand for alto trombones, but that's another story.   

I anticipate alternating between this horn and my regular tenor during band rehearsals.  I usually play during rehearsals.
