The Trombone is a brass instrument which produce sound by the vibration of air column inside the instrument through the vibration made by the player's lips (embouchure) on the mouthpiece.
mouthpiece is an instrument part where the tone is created. Each part of the mouthpiece comes in a variety of shapes & sizes which influence the music produced by the instrument.
Seemingly alike with
Baritone Horn, and differs to its conical valved equals, the Euphonium & Orchestral Horn, the Trombone has mainly a cylindrical bore with slide mechanism that varies its length to produce notes instead of through valves. However, Valve Trombones have no slides but instead have 3 valves like the trumpet's.
PARTS OF A BRASS INSTRUMENT MOUTHPIECE:
Rim - The rim is where the player places his/her lips to blow air into the instrument, which is located at the top of the mouthpiece.
Wider Rim - Good for beginners as it is comfortable to use thereby increasing endurance to play.
Narrower Rim - Good for advanced players as it provides increased flexibility of range.
Cup - Forces the air produced by the player to go into the backbore through its concave shape, with its depth & shape influencing the sound.
Depth. Deeper Cup- Darkens tone especially in low registers. Shalower Cup - Brightens tone especially in high registers.
Shape. Semi-spherical Cup- Offers brighter & more projected tones. Conical Cup - Has less tone definition.
Throat- Determines how much the air flows in from the cup.
Larger Throat - Offers more control in the volume & tone, and sharpens the high end of the register.
Smaller Throat - Offers good playability but flattens the high end of the register.
Backbore- Responsible for spreading or chanelling the sound, with its shape & size influencing the sound it produces.
Shape . Conical Backbore- Makes the sound more "full".
Cylindrical Backbore- Makes the sound more "choppy".
Size . Bigger Backbore- Offers a better depth of sound.
Smaller Backbore- Allows the tone to be focused more easily.
Shank - The long piece of hollow metal extends from the cup and connects to the instrument. The size of the shank measures the diameter and taper at the end of the mouthpiece that connects to the instrument.

Suit your taste, find your preferred sound with the following Brass Instruments' Finishing & Materials :
COMMON BRASS INSTRUMENT FINISHING:
Lacquer Finish- Gives a deep & dark sound in the lower registers. Comes in varied colors (clear lacquer, gold, black), yet the colors do not affect the sound at all, except the lacquer itself. Affordable, yet increases durability of the instrument.
Silver-Plating - The silver-plating by nature adds some weight to the instrument because of the addition of the extra metal. This additional weight provides a warmer sound.
BRASS INSTRUMENTS' MATERIALS:
Yellow Brass- Contains 70% Copper + 30% Zinc. Produces a bright tone & brilliant gold color due to less copper content. Yamaha's products made from this brass alloy with its state-of-the-art technology has made their resilience & durability proven & tested over decades with the finest results.
Gold Brass- Contains 85% Copper + 15% Zinc. Produces a darker tone than Yellow Brass and a dark gold color due to increased copper content. Provides the instrument with high corrosion resistance.
Rose Brass - Contains 90% Copper + 10% Zinc. Sometimes called "Red Brass" due to its high copper content which produces the reddish hue. Also, it produces an even darker tone than Gold Brass, and offers warmness in the instrument's sound.
Nickel Silver - Contains 60% Copper + 20% Zinc + 20% Nickel. Its Copper & Nickel contents offer a good balance between bright & dark tone, thereby giving brightness to the instrument's sound. Contrary to its name, the Nickel Silver may appear in Silver but with no content of silver in its composition.
