What Are Brass Instruments?

It’s all in the name! Early ancestors of the brass family were made from materials such as wood and husk but today’s modern brass instruments are made entirely of brass. These instruments rely on lip vibrations to produce sound. The musician buzzes their lips against a metal, cup–shaped mouthpiece while controlling pitch through valves or slides that lengthen air columns.

What are the Five Main Brass Instruments?

There are five main instruments within the brass family — including many other variations within each of them. Commonly misclassified, the saxophone is in fact a woodwind instrument. Like clarinets and flutes, the saxophone generates sound with a reed, vibrating the air down the tube to produce sound. The five major brass band instruments include:

Which Brass Instrument Should I Play?

Choose a brass instrument that makes the sound you enjoy hearing. The modern trumpet is popular for its bright sounds created by its cylindrical bore. An excellent beginner trumpet, the John Packer Student Trumpet Bb has an adjustable third valve finger ring that’s suitable for growing hands.

For the best beginner instrument, the trombone wins best in brass! Its larger mouthpiece makes it easier to 'buzz' initially and pitch is controlled by a slide rather than valves. Browse our bass trombones for sale including the John Packer Tenor Trombone Bb Brass Bell.

Another important factor to consider is physicality. Trombones require a long arm reach, whereas large brass instruments like the tuba require a strong breath.

Rather pass on families of brass? Browse our wide range of guitars, drum kits and pianos or shop music accessories to complete your set–up.
