(i.e. it sounds a tone lower than music written for it in ‘C’, and its bottom note is B flat). This is the instrument that is most often used in classical and jazz situations. Orchestral models tend to have a larger bore size, while most jazz players prefer the brighter sound of small-bore trombones.

The Soprano Trombone

The soprano trombone is pitched an octave higher than a tenor trombone, and is sometimes called a ‘slide trumpet’. It’s very rarely heard as its small dimensions also make it very hard to play in tune.
