On Saturday, June 15, 2013 Conn-Selmer supported the local Susan G. Komen Northern Indiana Race for the Cure with the launch of the new pink pBone and a race team. 

Conn-Selmer Managing Director Mike Kamphuis kicked off the race ceremonies by playing the pink pBone to lead the “charge” of the events attendees.  Executive Director for this event, Sheri Miller also shared that $5.00 from every sale of the pink pBone will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Northern Indiana Affiliate.  To see a video of this, visit www.conn-selmer.com.  After only a week of public sales, Conn-Selmer has raised $1500 from pink pBones for donation.  Conn-Selmer is looking forward to increasing the amount as sales continue over the next year.

The Jiggs Whigham pBone brings a fun and intriguing twist to the traditional trombone.  Developed by accomplished trombonists, the pBone was designed to spark the interest in young children and promote interest in the art of brass playing.  With its plastic construction, this lightweight instrument sounds remarkably like brass trombones. The pBone is being used by professionals, amateurs, and students alike. pBone is a fun way to catch the eye and ear of any audience, as was demonstrated by Ed Lotter, the Whistle Pigs’ trombonist on Friday, June 14, 2013 during their concert in Potawatomi Park.

pBone is a colorful, fully functional small bore trombone. To find out more about the resilient construction, remarkable durability, dimensions and available colors visit www.jiggspbone.com
