Trombones

A brief description of the trombone

Trombones have changed very little since their conception unlike most other instruments. What sets it apart from other brass instruments is it's ability to slide smoothly from one note to another. This effect is called a glissando. Listen out for it in Bartok's Concerto for Orchesta. Much use has been made of the glissando for comic effect in pieces like "The Acrobat" by J.A. Greenwood. For a comprehensive history of the developement of the trombone look at the Wikipedia web-page.
