Sackbut (Accepted)

Sackbut (Accepted)

A sackbut is an S-shaped brass musical instrument, the medieval precursor of the trombone.  It’s a period instrument, dating from the 15th Century [Grove 22:78], but doesn’t seem to have been found in period armory.  The sackbut is palewise, bell to base by Society default; when fesswise, the bell faces dexter.  For related charges, see horn (hunting), trumpet.

Davide Michelotto bears:  Checky vert and argent, on a bend sinister gules a sackbut Or.

Wolfgang Neuschel der Grau bears as a badge:  Azure, three sackbuts inverted within a bordure argent.
