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.
