Interested in purchasing your OWN trombone?

Norwin is able to provide all high school trombonists with a trombone for them to use at home and in their school ensembles.  Students are NOT required to purchase their own instrument but may if they desire.

Before purchasing any new or used instrument, it is highly recommended that students and parents do the following:

  1. Speak to your band director and/or private instructor about the desire to purchase a new instrument and seek their recommendations / guidance.
  2. Visit Volkwein’s Music in person, meet with one of the trained instrument salespeople, and test out several instruments before purchasing.

There is an overwhelming number of options available, including many very appealingly affordable instruments online.  Many of these instrument-shaped objects are extremely low-quality and are difficult to impossible to repair.  Therefore, the instrumental music staff at Norwin recommends that high school students consider the following Intermediate and Professional level instruments when purchasing a new or used instrument:

Intermediate - Yamaha YSL 548GOAL, Yamaha YSL 446/448

Professional - Yamaha YSL 620/640

*Intermediate = high school student with intermediate-level skills who may continue playing their instrument after high school

*Professional = high school student with advanced-level skills who probably will continue playing their instrument after high school
