ABOUT THE TROMBONE Early trombones - Early trombones were regularly used in groups with trumpets, where they were the lowest voice in the instrumental consort.
- A tradition of music for these instruments continued into the 17th century when music for trumpets and trombones or cornets and sackbuts, to refer to their earlier name- was internationally popular with such eminent composers as Giovanni Gabrieli, Heinrich Schutz, and Henry Purcell. - The earliest type of trombone was called sackbut.
- The bell's funnel was wider than 5 inches (13 cm)
- In the early 17th century there was an alto, bass, and contrabass version.:O - Uses a slide
- If you unwind it, the total is 9 feet
- The instrument has a cup-shaped mouthpiece attached to a cylindrical length of tubing that expands toward a flared bell.
- As with other brass instruments, the sound is produced by a vibrating column of air through the mouthpiece into the instruments coiled tubing.
- Unlike the modern trumpet or french horn, which have valves that produce different notes, the trombone has long U-shaped slide that the player manipulates to produce a wide range of pitches
