Modern reconstruction of a fifteenth-century slide trumpet
Modern reconstruction of a fifteenth-century slide trumpet

The slide trumpet is a type of trumpet that is fitted with a slide much like a trombone. Eventually, the slide trumpet evolved into the sackbut, which evolved into the modern-day trombone. The key difference between these two instruments is that the slide trumpet possesses only a single slide joint, rather than the double slide joint of the sackbut / trombone. There are several types of slide trumpet of different places and eras.

Early instrument

The slide trumpet grew out of the war trumpet as used and developed in Western and Central Europe: Don Smithers argues that the slide grew out of the detachable leadpipe, and separated the use of the trumpet as a dance instrument from the trumpet as a signaling device in war.[1]

Renaissance slide trumpet

As no instruments from this period are known to have survived, the details – and even the existence – of a Renaissance slide trumpet is a matter of some conjecture, and there continues to be some debate among scholars.[2] Some slide trumpet designs saw use in England in the 18th century.[3]
