This instrument belongs to the brass family. Air vibrates through a player's lips, into a mouthpiece which is connected to the instrument. Trombones are very good at doing a glissando. It is the only brass instrument that has a slide instead of valves.


Byron Fulcher introduces his instrument - the trombone.

Listen at 1 minute 30 seconds for glissando and an unusual duet.
