Egger Renaissance slide trumpet in Eb 440

The slide trumpet is one of the earliest brass instruments of the Renaissance and is used, for example, as Tromba di tirarsi parts in the Alta Cappella. The concept of our Renaissance slide trumpet is a reconstruction based on an altarpiece by Hans Memling, c. 1490, on which 3 trumpet-playing angels are depicted.
