The most awesome brass instrument in the world.
Uses a slide to change notes.
Evolved from the ancient sakbut, the first brass instrument able to play a chromatic scale.
Has the same range as the Euphonium, or Baritone, usually based in the key of B flat.
Has many varieations such as the soprano, alto, tenor (the normal trombone), and bass trombone (which is also amazing).
"Trombone" means paperclip in spanish.
