Since its inception in 1996, British-made Michael Rath trombones have been preferred by some of the leading performers in the world for its prime performance in almost every musical situation, functioning at its best, whether it's used in orchestras, opera houses, film and television studios, band concerts, or different types of shows, of many genres and ensembles. Putting high emphasis on versatility on instrument design, all Michael Rath products are guaranteed to address each musician's – whether a student or a professional – needs when it comes to concept of sound, response, physical makeup, technique, and approach. As a result, the trombones are much more personal and comfortable to play.
With its partnership with JP Musical Instruments since 2008, Michael Rath has created a special line of JP Rath Trombones and French Horns that draw on Rath's expertise and professional knowledge. Michael Rath offers custom trombones, the latest Rath 00 series, JP/Rath student trombones, silver- and gold-plated mouthpieces, and accessories such as hand support, heavyweight valve caps, goose neck, and detachable balance weight. The JP Rath line includes the JP231 RATH Bb Tenor Trombone, which was used by Carol Jarvis in 2009 during Seals's European tour. In addition, JP Rath instruments feature an exclusively designed Rath leadpipe that was personally developed by Michael Rath.
