It has been a fundamental part of the metal sections of various types from orchestras, philharmonic bands to big bands.
The rod version works by moving a plunger to give the different notes, with the particularity of being able to make glissandos, which allows it a unique expressiveness. The JP134 is a piston version, with a mechanism similar to the traditional trumpet.
