I purchased the TromboneSpineSaver™ for myself after a severe wrist injury. Doctor’s told me that I had to put the trombone down for at least 6 months unless I could find a way to take the weight completely off my wrist in all angles. Professor Jackson at the University of Michigan suggested I reach out…

Karl loves his new trombone stand! He plays in his high school marching, jazz, & concert bands. So when he fractured his collarbone, he was pretty devastated. Fortunately, it wasn’t displaced & he did not require surgery. The doctor gave him no restrictions except, ‘If it hurts, don’t do it.’ So, now that we received…

I am a fourth grade band teacher and I was looking for a way to help a physically impaired student play the trombone. I came across the TromboneSpineSaver™ and purchased it for my student hoping it would help him hold the trombone on his own. Adjusting the TromboneSpineSaver™ to fit my student’s needs was difficult…

The TromboneSpineSaver™ stand is actually working fine. I had a small adjustment of the valve lever and during the last month. I have been able to participate in several band rehearsals and I will soon join in the first concert since my wrist accident. This would not have been possible without the TromboneSpineSaver™ stand. I…

But, with the TromboneSpineSaver™ I don’t have to worry about that. While there have been some minor “getting-used-to” discoveries, none of…

I am seriously endorsing The Jon Holtfreter “Trombone Spine Saver Stand”. I’ve developed arthritis in my back and shoulder over the years and this stand is helping me to negotiate the instrument again. I enjoy playing Bass Trombone again without the pain. I did try the ErgoBone stand. I like this better – it doesn’t…

When I started playing trombone in 5th grade, they issued us a type of trombone known as the Tenor Trombone. Because we were fifth graders, the large instrument’s weight was too much for us, and pulled our heads towards the instrument; making us lean our head far to the left. We were further hindered by…

It is my belief that, when used properly, the TromboneSpinesaver™ performance stand greatly reduces the amount of stress on the hand from playing. Using the TromboneSpinesaver™ really makes the long practice sessions feel more comfortable and I most certainly would have not been able to make it through those sessions without it. But of course,…
