A physics-based model of the trombone is developed using filters derived both from theory and acoustical measurement. The measured filters are taken by extending a previously introduced measurement system, allowing for the isolation of the effects of the trombone bell, for which no known one dimensional traveling wave solution exists. The complete parametric model is coupled to a configurable generalized reed model and when properly set, the reed playability is strongly dependent on the bore and bell resonances. This synthesis is well suited for interactive, real time applications.
