Riker plays the trombone

A trombone was a musical instrument from the planet Earth. A member of the brass family, it wais characterized by a slide with which the player varied the length of the tube in order to change pitches. It was commonly used in jazz music.

Commander William T. Riker was a proficient trombonist, and his trombone was one of his prized possessions. In 2369, Will gave it to his duplicate Thomas Riker as a gift. However, by the next year, Will was in possession of another trombone, a King Instruments model 3B, a classic and well-regarded jazz trombone.

In an alternate quantum reality visited by Worf in 2370, Riker was the Captain of the USS Enterprise-D and his trombone was on display in his ready room. (TNG: "Parallels")
