Well done! You've found the trombone!

The Trombone is made of yellow brass and is a member of the brass family.

It comes in two sizes –tenor and bass.

You hold the trombone horizontally and use your lips (embouchure) and breath to create air which vibrates in the tubes which are lengthened and shortened by the slide.

The trombone can make some very exciting and funny sound effects!
