As a life long, dedicated trombonist I insist on “soprano trombone.”  BTW, I have a soprano that Larry Minick made and have been considering putting it on the market if anyone’s interested.  Private email me if so.

Some call it a trumpet because it’s pitched the same as a trumpet. Others call it a trombone because of the slide. Some use both names together to improve their internet searchability.
