Rath Trombones factory will close on the 27th March 2020 for a undetermined period due to the Covid 19 outbreak.

I have not found this an easy decision to make, I certainly do not wish to let any of my customers down and as soon as it is considered safe we will return to produce our world class trombones.

We have not had signs of illness here, but in the interest of staff and customer safety, I feel it necessary to take these precautions to help do our part in supporting our country in the elimination of this terrible disease.

If you have repairs booked in, please contact us on info@rathtrombones.com or on the telephone 01484 660555.

These are worrying times and I hope all are valued customers will understand and support us in this decision.

I sincerely apologise to all our customers who are awaiting trombone orders , we will do our best to return and complete these as soon as the risk to our staff and our customers has decreased.

I hope you can all understand and support us in this decision.

Please Stay safe and well.

Best Regards Mick Rath
