Musician – Trombone Coffee Mug
A melody for your morning coffee. Start your day with a song and a smile. This beautiful ceramic mug is decorated with musical staves and notes, a great way to enjoy your morning coffee or tea. Handmade and high quality, this mug is a real treat.
This is one of the best gifts for trombone players who are entering the world of ensemble playing. A trombone stand is so useful in many different ensemble settings, but particularly orchestral musicians and those that do a lot of shows will find it almost a necessity.
My recommendation is the Konig & Meyer stand as it is both extremely sturdy (I use the bass trombone model) and easily portable.
K&M 14990 Portable, Adjustable-Black Finish Trombone Stand
If you are worried about scratching the inside of your bell, then this Hamilton Bone Sock handily fits right over the top of most existing models of stand.
Again, this trombone gift would be perfect for an intermediate player who is starting to join ensembles. Most trombone mutes are way too big to fit in a musical instrument case, and when playing in higher-level ensembles and bands, you are expected to have a full complement of mutes.
We recommend this Protec bass trombone mute bag – easy to transport and plenty big enough to hold a full set of mutes as well as music and everything else you may need. These bags also include compartments so that the mutes do not bang against each other and get dented.
Metronome and Tuner
All musicians should have access to a tuner and a metronome. While there are many great apps that you can download to help do the job, there is nothing better than having a physical device handy just in case. For a combined metronome and tuner, this Snark device has many excellent reviews.
For just a metronome, I like this KORG.
And for just a tuner, again, this KORG will do the job perfectly.
Sheet Music Stand
Great for both sitting and standing positions. The two-inch deep tray is enough to hold any kind of music sheet or book. Metal spring arm extensions hold music sheets and songbooks securely in place. The tripod legs extend farther outwards for a steadier footing. Tripod feet are rubber-coated to hold a firm grip on the floor.
Silent Brass System
If the trombone player you want to buy a gift for lives with housemates or in an apartment, this might be the perfect trombone gift! With the Yamaha’s Silent Brass System the player hears the sound through earphones and you only hear a muffled sound from the trombone itself. This product is quite pricy out of this list of trombone player gifts but if you want to give a present that will make a big impact, this is it!
