Incredible value for money
14.07.2016
I've now been playing this horn for a couple of months and I am incredibly impressed by it. I play for a brass band and before this I played on a Bach 50BG which was briefly followed by a King 6B. The Thomann proBONE 3 simply outclasses both of them.

The proBONE 3 plays like a far more expensive instrument, very responsive from sailing around above the stave to the depths of the pedal register. There isn't a register where it becomes cloudy like I had experienced on my previous instruments.

The tonal quality is very good, giving a deep sonorous sound in the quieter parts and the classic bass trombone 'rip' when things get louder. The tone is far superior to the Bach I played on, which was quite thin. The King gave a similar sound but was far less forgiving if you slightly miss-pitched.

The valves are currently the best I've played on. Incredibly smooth action and just the right amount of resistance. They do require regular maintenance (I oil them once a month to keep them in good shape), but this is not much difference to any trombone. I have found that after an extended playing session, engaging both valves can become difficult. This (for me) is down to the horn resting on the hand-thumb joint when both valves are engaged. However, this happens so infrequently I don't even count it as a con.

The only slight downside is the slide. It isn't the smoothest ever. Again it is better than the Bach, but I consider the King superior in this respect. This isn't to say that it is a bad slide as it is far from that, but it could be a little better.

Apart from the instrument you also get a Pro-Tec case (which aren't cheap!) and a full cleaning/maintenance kit, which whilst not expensive by themselves is a nice touch. It is essentially an all-in-one bass trombone kit.

Overall, an incredible horn for the money and I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to spend ~£5000 on an instrument.

Very good instrument for doublers
Alby Tbone Borio, 04.03.2018
Wonderful bass trombone for musicians who play tenor as first axe. Slide is fast and smooth, valves are in perfect status.
It came in a luxurious ProTec case with a huge cleaning & maintenance kit and a Bach 1,5 mouthpiece.

Gorgeous!

Leider nix
R.Sch., 09.11.2017
Ich lasse mir immer sehr viel Zeit mit einer Bewertung und habe das Instrument jetzt wirklich mal eine ganze Saison gespielt.

Kurzresümee:
Vorweg - das Preis-/ Leistungsverhältnis mag stimmen, aber das Instrument kommt sehr schnell an seine grenzen und macht keinen Spaß mehr --> lieber eine gebrauchte aber hochwertige Bass Posaune!

Ausführliches Resümee:
Man bekommt das, was man für ca. 1600 Euro erwarten kann. Das Instrument ist für einen Anfänger sicher erstmal in Orndung, aber ich würde es auf keinen Fall einem ambitionierten Musiker empfehlen.

Meine Wahl ist auf diese Posaune gefallen, weil ich sehr viel auf der Bühne stehe und ich dort kein teures Instrument haben möchte (Aufbau, Abbau, Diebstahl, Bewegung, Dellen, Kabelsalat usw.).

Positiv:
- Ausstattung (sehr guter Koffer, gutes Mundstück (naja -> Bach hald))

Negativ:
- Billig verarbeitet
- Schlechter Klang
- Ansprache Quartventil/Sextventil
- einfach "wackelig"
- Stimmzug fällt ständig raus (geht erst sehr schwer und dann sprint er förmlich raus - egal ob mit oder ohne Fett)

Ich verstehe nicht ganz wie man diese Posaune so gut bewerten kann - klar das Preis-/ Leistungsverhältnis mag in Ordnung sein, aber ich kann diese Posaune nach 40 Konzerten förmlich "in die Tonne treten".

Letzten Endes sind für den Einstieg sogar 1600 Euro zu viel!
