Last time pBones became available I ordered one for my mate, Manu, and one extra to sell.
I'd never seen a green one so I ordered one of those.
Big mistake !
Red is the colour of fêtes, férias and festivals. Green is the colour of mould.
So I advertised it in the schools of music.
Profs de trombone recommended it to their pupils.
I put it on eBay and on Le Bon Coin. Still nothing.
We came back from holidays and I thought, "OK, I'll put on the green one and my red one and see what happens." I also dropped the price.
And the green one sold last weekend. I posted it off on Monday and it shoudl have arrived today, assuming the buyer was at home.
So much for making a packet selling plastic trombones! Trouble is, they're no longer £50, they're £90, and by the time you add on carriage then really you're not much cheaper than Conn-Selmer with their 149€.
