400 trombones playing at the same time. A new world record during the annual trombone festival in Birmingham last year. Apparently the old record was 289 by the Netherlands. Which got me thinking: Did they have 300 trombones and did 11 players not show up? Did 11 players forgot their trombone and just buzzing with your lips didn’t count for the attempt. Or did the 11 play along but were they disqualified for playing under influence? Anyway the new record is 400 and more can be read here.
