Most beginning students start with a straight trombone, which does not have extra tubing included. More advanced students may wish to go with an F-rotor trombone, which adds an extra trigger to make the trombone longer, changing the key. A student may decide to purchase a new trumpet, rent an instrument from a local shop, or try to buy a used instrument. If renting or buying used, make sure the instrument is cosmetically sound and largely free of dents, and that the valves and slide all move correctly.
