The JP RATH Collaboration

Designed in England - Played the world over

A collaboration in design

A united vision to provide affordable quality

The JP Rath range represent the perfect balance between Rath components and craftsmanship blended together with the high value to performance ratio associated with JP Musical Instruments. 

Growing from a Bb Tenor Trombone, the range now encompasses Bb/F Trombones, Bass Trombones and - owing to Michael Rath's earlier experience working with French horns at Paxmans - also French Horns. 

In January 2024 Rath trombones was acquired by John Packer Musical Instruments. The agreement will see JP Musical Instruments look after marketing, distribution and logistics for the Yorkshire business, while retaining Rath’s focus as a maker of outstanding, bespoke trombones, the choice of leading symphonic, commercial and studio trombonists all over the world.

What do people say?

"These are solid functional trombones and, in my opinion, offer unsurpassed value for money and are without doubt one of the finest instruments on the market..."
