    I can squeak out a DHC on a piece of 1/2 inch plastic tubing from home depot, so I would imagine whatever plastic they choose will do just fine...

    The pBone trombone comes with a plastic mouthpiece. But it seems that those who play it use their traditional mouthpieces. If I buy a plastic trumpet I would put on it one of my Monette, it will be "so chic", maybe a little snobbish…

    Will this be a MC clone? :lol:

    Yes but the sound is obviously better with a decent MP - or such is my experience of my Trombone playing offspring's sound - and he has two PBones.

    I believe the P-bone slide is a carbon fiber composite -- such that it needs NO LUBRICATION. I suspect the P-pet valves would also be a carbon fiber, and that would eliminate any discussion on what kind of valve oil was needed. The valves would be quiet also. ROFL ROFL ROFL

    I think the P-bone has metal lining the slides, the valves could be some version of that, or it could just be a metal valve block. The p-bones sound pretty darn good. I'd think they wouldn't want to mess up the little bit of good reputation they've gotten with that.
