When the valves are closed the same playing techniques apply to the bass trombone as to the tenor trombone.

The valves make additional playing techniques possible.
Greater ease of slide use in the two octaves below middle C enables faster playing in the lower register: shorter position changes can be chosen when playing fast scales, leading to greater accuracy (transition C3–B2).
