What do brass instruments have valves reeds or slides?

Brass instruments can have valves or a slide, but not reeds. Brass instruments create sound by the vibrating of the player's embouchure in a mouthpiece, and the valves and slides on the instrument change the length of the tubing in the instrument which affects the pitch of the notes produced.
