bill russo physical just-intoned string different parts of a trombonea trombone consists of a few main parts. starting at the beginning of the instrument, there is the mouthpiece which the player uses to create the sound. from there, the inner and outer slide come next. to play different pitches, the player moves only the outer slide, as the inner slide is fixed in place, to different positions depending on what note is desired. moving down the slide to the bottom of the instrument a water key, or spit valve as many call it, is usually present in order for the player to let out water that condenses in the trombone. moving down and around then up the slide, comes the point where the slide section and the bell section meet, using a connector nut to hold the two sections together. moving up further, the tuning slide and/or a counterweight is/are present, with the tuning slide being used for adjusting intonation. after the tuning slide comes the bell which, depending on the size and what material is made of, helps define the individual trombone’s sound.
