The Trombone is a brass instrument that consists of a long cylindrical metal tube with two turns and a movable slide or valves for varying the tone with a usual range one octave lower than that of the trumpet. It plays the important role of balancing the high sounds of the trumpet with the rest of the musicians. The price of the trombone ranges from $400 – $2800 and more. See it in action in the video.
The modern trombone was invented in the middle of the 15th century by Flemish instrument makers in France.
