Making Trombone Within Reach
The trombone is big, but that shouldn't stop you. With the Extendabone trombone slide extension handle, anyone can play trombone!
I highly recommend this great new product Extendabone! No longer do trombonists have to feel stressed when playing 6th and 7th positions or written glissandi. Extendabone takes all the worry out of awkward reaches on the instrument. Extendabone will be excellent for all younger players and trombonists at all levels. I love this product's simple and easy-to-use design.

Extendabone was designed to support good habits and help build more good ones
HOW IT WORKS
Clip onto the handslide with the logo facing out. If it is too loose, attach the foam inside the clip. It should pivot but not slide up and down.
Hold the handle just like the trombone slide. The fat part of the handle fits in your palm with a groove for your thumb.
Hold Extendabone in line with the slide handle until you need the extra length to reach far positions.
Fold it back parallel with the stockings when you don't need it.
What They're Saying
Extendabone is working well!! I can play my 7th position in tune and I can reach there without having to stretch out my entire body.
Hanae Yoshida, Juilliard School Student
My student loves the Extendabone! He was reaching excessively to play notes in 5th-7th positions, negatively affecting his embouchure. Using the slide extension, he can comfortably play through the entire range, and he doesn’t think twice about reaching those positions.

PRINCIPAL TROMBONE, NEW YORK PHILHARMONICI
JUST GOT MY EXTENDABONE IN THE MAIL TODAY!!!IT IS FANTASTIC! NO MORE STRUGGLING WITH MY T-REX ARM TRYING TO REACH 7TH POSITION. WHERE HAS THIS BEEN MY WHOLE TROMBONE-PLAYING LIFE?!? IT IS VERY EASY TO USE AND I NOTICE THE COMPLETE DIFFERENCE IN THAT MY TONE DOES NOT CHANGE GETTING TO AND FROM 7TH POSITION WHEN USING THE EXTENDABONE. WHEREAS WITHOUT IT, I AM MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, SOMEWHAT SHARP AND MY TONE IS COMPROMISED.
