Holiday Shopping 2022
It’s time for Jen’s Holiday Shopping List! What to get the brass player that has everything??
This product is the first new product of its kind made for all types of brass instruments, allowing you to remove and attach a pencil quickly. The innovative design won’t scratch or mark up the instrument like the other hard plastic options.
The use of strong NeoDymium “rare Earth” magnets is a perfect way to secure the pencil, take notes, and reapply while only using one hand.
Brasswitch users have talked about being ‘converts’ when using the accessory because of the satisfaction of the magnet’s pull. Try it once, and you’ll be under its spell!
- Folds easily and compactly to store inside the bell of the instrument.
- The Lightweight Design is easy to set up and provides a strong, stable base for the instrument.
- The Compact In-Bell Design allows the stand to store safely in the bell of the instrument taking no space in the instrument case.
- The Velvet Base Design protects the finish of the instrument.
- IMHO, it might be better suited for tenor trombones but is cleared to hold up to 11lbs so maybe it’s ok for bass trombones????
- Material: Aluminum, Galvanized Iron and Steel. Color: Silver.
- Rustproof, anti-corrosion, solid and durable.
- Jaw is adjustable, suitable for most brass instruments, such as trumpet, trombone and others.
- Creative 3D Visual Effect: The night lights are made with 3d technology to create a actual optical gorgeous 3d illusion of a trombone. It’s bound to amaze and impress your kids and guests. Note, Not Real 3D, Just Visual Effect!
- Smart Touch: The night light can be fixed to one color or 7 colors.
- Dual Power Mode: Can be powered by 3-AA batteries (not included) or 5V USB cable connected to PC or your home adaptor (not included).
- Eco-friendly & Safety: Made from safe approved eco-friendly material.
Oldies but goodies…
Nothing says the holidays like “Sorry, I Tooted.”
- These clip-on mustaches are totally unnecessary but loads of fun! Snaps on and off the mouthpiece easily so you can be as silly or serious as you wish. Mouthpiece not included.
