    Sackbutts: Renaissance trombone
    Cornett (or Zink): a wooden instrument curved with a trumpet-like mouthpiece, also from the Renaissance.

    And you are not the only one!

    Being Italian I'll never be able of understand the malicious actraction English-speaking people have for the words "sackbutts" or "sagbutts".

    But the words are the old English translittering of the French for "push and pull".

    sack...tts...push and pull...hmmm...I start to think that some kind of sexual link may exist...

    ...really???

    So, is this (or are these) libraries freely available? If so, could you post a link please?

    Mmm. Cornetto. I've wanted once since I've seen one played live. Gal who played it was first trumpet with the SF Symphony, and said this was the toughest "brass" instrument she'd ever touched. All I know is my account at Lark in the Morning is NOT going to cover a "zink" with hand-stitched leather cover and ivory mouthpiece...!
