Trombone

There are many different types of Trombones, just like people, each one has its own unique approach.

Tenor Trombone

Tenor Trombone

The most popular trombone for beginners. The most widely used trombone in classical, jazz, and popular music. It is, in fact, one of the earliest and least-changed wind instrument designs currently in use. The tenor trombone has a broad, sonorous tone which can both blend well with horns and keep pace with the trumpets.
