If you’re one of our regular readers, then you probably know that we love reviewing a wide range of instruments in our articles and in this article, we will review the Eastar Trombone which is a great beginner trombone. It is very exciting for us because it is not common to see a high-quality product like this with a price tag like this.
Before we get to our detailed review let’s mention that Eastar Trombone is an ideal option for beginner trumpet players who are looking for a trombone that they can play for a very long time. We like this product in that sense because even though it is not a professional trombone, it is a solid and high-quality trombone.
Eastar Trombone Review
About: This is a well-built trombone that has a robust design, it has a decent sound quality and it comes with very reasonable price tag. There is not much more you can expect from a beginner instrument, really. Eastar Trombone can also be a great back-up trombone because of its lightweight.
Features: When we take a look at Eastar Trombone the first thing that catches our attention is the fact that this product is very lightweight at 9.28 pounds. That is why, this trombone can be held for long hours with no problem even by kids and that is why you might consider this one if you’re looking for an instrument for your kid.
This product comes with a clean voice, accurate tone, bright and penetrating sound that you can only find in the trombones that have a much more expensive price tag. It features a stunning yellow brass body construction which is also nice because sound is not the only important thing in an instrument.
It also comes with a small bore which makes it ideal for different types and styles of musicians and genres. It is also designed to provide a better and more accurate tone, than many other trombones, on the market.
Considering its price tag, it is very nice of the manufacturer to include various accessories with the product such as hard carrying case, a pocketbook for trombone, gloves, soft cleaning cloth, and oil for the slide. Hard carrying case is not something that one often encounters in budget friendly instruments.
As for the durability, we should mention that it is very good. However, it is not built like a tank, so, always be careful about the dings and other damages that might happen to the product.
We also like the fact that Eastar Trombone comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty which is nice considering that you never know what you will encounter after you buy an instrument. Keep in mind that this doesn’t cover the damaged made by you.
What to Look for In a Beginner Level Trombone
As with any other thing that you buy, there are different trombones that are at different levels in the market. So, the best thing you can do is to buy a trombone that matches your level and your needs because otherwise you might encounter some problems.
It doesn’t make sense to buy a beginner level instrument if you’re a professional trombone player since the chance that it is going to disappoint you is very high. On the other hand, we also don’t suggest buying an advanced level trombone if you’re a beginner for a couple of reasons.
The first reason is a very obvious one which is the price tag. We never advise our readers to spend hundreds of dollars for an instrument if they are new at playing that instrument since it can be hard to stick with any habit for a variety of reasons and that also goes for playing musical instrument. Therefore, you will regret your decision if you decide to stop playing and that is why it is a better to buy an instrument that won’t make you go broke.
The main reason for that is that the market of musical instrument has changed a lot in the recent years. It is possible to find a very high-quality instrument for a price tag that might surprise you like between 150$-$300$ Dollars. On the hand, it makes sense to pay a lot for a trombone such as more than 500$ if you’re an advanced trombone player.
Conclusion: Eastar Trombone [2023 Review]
Buying a budget friendly instrument for a much more reasonable price tag is much easier today thanks to the high technology. So, you don’t have to break bank to be able to have a new habit like playing trombone.
To be able to do that, you need a great instrument that will help you when you’re starting your journey and there are not a lot of trombones in the market that will do that for you other than Eastar Trombone which we wanted to review exactly for that reason. We hope that our review was helpful to you
