Sackbut (var. Sacbutt; Sackbutt; Sagbutt) refers to a trombone from the Renaissance and Baroque Eras. More delicately constructed than their modern counterparts, historic trombones feature a softer, more flexible sound and they attracted a sizeable repertoire of original chamber and vocal music.


History of the names

The first reference to a slide instrument was probably trompette des ménestrels, first found in Burgundy in the 1420s and later in other regions of Europe. It was used to distinguish the instrument from the trompettes de guerre (war trumpets) which were a fixed length. (Herbert 2006, p. 57)
