Happy to say I have been playing on the Extendabone created by Nikki Abissi for about a week and I absolutely love it!
This is a great tool both in teaching and personal growth, can’t wait to discover all the ways to putthis powerful tool to use. If you haven’t checked out the Extendabone Team you should do so because they are doing great things!

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.

Attention contra bass trombone players! (And any trombonists who have trouble reaching outer positions...)
Check our this cool new product The Extendabone!! Now I can reach my pedal F#s on my contra without dislocating my shoulder!!

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.

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.

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.
