cylindrical bore

si-LIN-dri-kul bor


Those wind instruments constructed with a cylindrical-shaped tube as opposed to a conical or slightly flaring tube. The trombone and trumpet are cylindrical bore instruments because the majority of the length of the tube has the same diameter, with the flare occurring only at the very end of the tube.
