The trombone is an essential instrument of the brass family. The word translates into a giant trumpet. Interestingly, composers like Beethoven addressed the Trombone as the ‘Voice of God’. The instrument holds the status of being sacred and produces music that can be connected to death and the afterlife. It was also used to create music for thunderstorms or other natural phenomena.
Over time, artists have explored the instrument’s true potential, and now besides being an essential part of a classical orchestra, the Trombone is a choice of a solo instrument among music lovers. It is unique in every sense, from its grandeur size to the mechanism of tuning its pitch. The overall length of the trombone is nine feet. Unlike brass instruments with valves for tuning, the trombone uses a metal slide mechanism to change the pitch.
