This one? It probably counts as brass if you get the yellow one.

You can get similar things over here called a p-bone. I have read that they're not at all bad for the price.

I've come across beginners playing them. I'm not a brass player, so couldn't add much else I'm afraid.

yes, the P-Bone is not a toy or a vuvuzuela but a real trombone. IF this john packer TROMBA is made the same way (which is very possible) I would buy it. The P-bone is much more expensive and was originally sold (for 75£) by a British company which them sold their distribution to the Conn-Selmer group that has now doubled its price.

Of course it is a brass instrument, just as much as the saxophone is a “ WOOD”wind ;}

I've played in a horn section with a guy who uses a P-bone.... sounds like.... a trombone (but louder- though I suspect that was more to do with the player)
