You should start the process of getting a trombone with a ball park price in mind.
Low-priced trombones are not always the best choice. There are many really bad brands on the market - some don't even work. So beware of ordering a cheapie no-name on the internet or from a big box discount store. Saving money is great but unlike using a Straight Talk promo code sometimes lower price can mean lower quality. Consult with your local music shop or with well-known websites like this one. You need the advice of an experienced professional to avoid rip-offs.
It is often a good idea to rent first to get a feel for the instrument before you buy. You may want to buy a used trombone, but be very careful when doing this. Or you may buy a new one. A great alternative to renting or buying is to lease a new trombone.
If you need a trombone, we can recommend three options for the young student. They include renting, leasing-to-own and purchasing.
EBay: Buyer Beware
EBay carries a wide-range of instruments - many we recommend and many we do NOT recommend. Stick with brand names only. Don't buy the cheap no-names. The low prices are very tempting. We don't allow them in our programs due to all the problems. Used instruments can offer good value. Click

Trombones have been around for over 600 years. The original
design of the trombone came from an Old English instrument called the sackbut.
The word sackbut probably came from the French words saquer, meaning to
pull, and bouter, meaning to push. The Italian word for sackbut is the
word trompone so that's were we probably got the word. In the beginning
there were four different kinds of trombones used. There was a soprano,
an alto, a tenor and a bass. Today the symphony orchestra usually has two
tenor and one bass trombone.
The trombone is the only modern orchestral brass instrument that could
play all the notes of the chromatic scale from the beginning. But they
weren't in early orchestras. Composers thought they were only for solemn
music. When composers write music for the trombone they usually write it
for three trombones to play at a time and they usually play the harmony.
At one time in the 19th century trombones had valves like other brass
instruments. But that style didn't last.The trombone sounds as written
which is different from other brass instruments. This is true because it
sounds the note as written in the music. It is the brass instrument that
uses the glissando the most. It is a long brass tube that is folded back
on itself sort of like a paper clip. The mouthpiece of a trombone is pretty
large and is cup-shaped. You play the trombone by sliding tubing back and
forth to make the tube longer or shorter. This changes the sound.
A trombone has seven positions. To make other pitches the player changes
his lip shape. When he squeezes or loosens his lips this changes the sound.
A trombone can also do a glissando, which is where the player goes up to
a note or down from a note, playing all the notes in between by just moving
