Trombones are one of the most unique members of the brass family, and bring an unmistakable presence and tone to any ensemble. With origins in the renaissance sackbut, trombones came into wider orchestral use in the 19th century following Beethoven's use of the instrument in three of his symphonies. Today, the trombone family has grown wide with variants including tenor and alto trombones, as well as valve-equipped bass trombones. Whether you're getting ready to join the school band, take a jazz solo, or fall in with the ska crowd, you can find the trombone that's right for you right here on Reverb.
