Slide Into Trombones

Trombones offer a resonant brass sound to musical performances. There are many different types, and their pitch and volume are dependent on player, style, and brand. Discover the variety of new and previously owned instruments on eBay for yourself.

What are some different types of trombones?

In addition to the variation that you can have by choosing a trombone made of brass versus steel, the style of instrument can help you to choose a certain musical range or pitch. A few examples include:

  • The Cimbasso: This is a versatile instrument. It can play music that ranges from relaxing to ominous.
  • The Bass: This trombone is known for its large mouthpiece, wide bore, and large bell.
  • The Tenor: The Tenor trombone uses several different slide positions to lower the pitch instead of keys, crooks, or valves.
How much do trombones weigh?

The weight of this instrument varies based on the type of trombone. Many that are played by beginners can be light and weigh in at 6 pounds to 8 pounds. If the instrument has an F-attachment and contains only one valve, it most likely weighs about 8 pounds to 10 pounds. Bass trombones are much heavier than those played by beginners and carry a weight of 10 pounds to 15 pounds. See the manufacturer site for details.

What features do soprano and alto trombones have?

The name "trombone" is derived from the words "big trumpet," and that description holds true for the soprano trombone. The soprano trombone has the exact same pitch as the the B-flat trumpet, and it can be played by those who play trumpets as well.

The alto trombone is one of the smaller members of the brass family. It is the only wind instrument written in the alto clef. The alto has a short slide, and its sound blends well with other types of horns. The alto is written at concert pitch. Its range can be as high as an E-flat. At its lowest, the alto's range is lower than an A.

How do you play a trombone?

Like many instruments, trombones take a few minutes to learn but a lifetime to master. You can learn in a few steps how to begin to play this instrument correctly:

  • Assemble the instrument: Lock the slide lock, and join the slide and the bell tube. Twist the mouthpiece as you insert it.
  • Hold the instrument: Using your right hand, you should hold it up. Your left hand should be supporting it, and your shoulders should be relaxed.
  • Vibrate your lips against the mouthpiece: The pressure with which you press your lips to the mouthpiece will allow you to manipulate the sound of the notes simply by adjusting the vibrations of your lips. For low notes, vibrate your lips slowly; for high notes, rapidly vibrate your lips.
