Getting a Grip

Close-up showing trombone grip from Triumph of Maximilian, 1526

I mentioned in this blog a few weeks ago that I had written an article for HubPages called How to Hold a Sackbut: The Grip of the Early Trombone in Pictures on iconography and the grip of the trombone in the Renaissance and Baroque. Since then, I’ve added 7 more images to the article, bringing the total to an even 40. You can check it out here.
