And a young slide trombonist. Did you know that there are also valve trombones?

There's also the early trombone, called a 'sackbut'. Curiously, in view of our chatter here, my wife sang oncewith an Early Music ensemble called "His Majestys Sagbuttsand Cornets"

Some of those kids are almost too small to carry those Sousaphones (sp?). Did you know that the Tuba and Sousaphone are musically the same instrument. The difference is that the Tuba is more compact and played sitting down while the Sousaphone is designed for walking in parades.

Now, I've not heard of Sagbutts but I have heard of valve-trombones. Don't they have a rather long tube leading to the bell?

Valve trombones have a similar look to the slide trombone, except the long protruding tube doesn't slide. Instead, like trumpet/cornets, baritone/euphoniums, flugle horns, etc., they have the 3 valves that are fingered in various combinations to produce different notes.

Walter for a brief moment I was taken aback when I saw those kids in shorts, I thought the Texas winter must be milder than I thought.

........NO! I did not know this bit of trivia, thanks Cal for the explanation. I have always called these instruments the TUBA and too, have always noted the relative size of the marching band as a 3, 4 or more TUBA band.

Nope, never heard of Sagbutts in reference to music, hi! hi! (HAM speak for LoL).

BTW, I likely saw these youngsters at the Arlington parade, thanks for posting the photo Walter.
