Michael Rath trombones are enjoyed all round the globe. The brand has a diverse range of artists, playing all manner of music.

Cory Band Trombone Section

The top ranking brass band in the world boasts a trombone line-up all playing Rath trombones.

Cory Band's trombone section is made up of Chris Thomas, Kyle Blake and Andrew Williams on Bass Trombone.

They selected the components to make their dream instrument, while being mindful of their combined sound. It's important that while each individual musician has their own comfortable Rath set-up, they also blend together as a section.

The trio's new trombones made their first contest appearance at the 2018 National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain where Chris Thomas won the award for Best Instrumentalist.

Rath Trombones also feature in the Black Dyke Band, another top ranking brass band.

The Rath trombones of choice, are the R4F's and the R9.

Lyndon Meredith

Like a magpie drawn to a shiny thing, Lyndon was inspired to join brass lessons aged 8 when the local music service visited his Dudley Primary school. First offered the cornet, when Lyndon saw a trombone, he knew that was the instrument for him.

Lyndon studied trombone at Birmingham Conservatoire before joining the Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra and working as a freelancer in the UK. He joined the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 2009, but has a soft spot for brass bands where he cut his playing teeth in Dudley early in his playing years.

As a bass trombone player there aren't many opportunities for solo performances, but Lyndon cites a career highlight playing ‘Frosty the Snowman’ with the Desford Colliery Band.
