What instruments were not common in the renaissance?
A consort is a group of instruments playing together. There are two types of consorts: a) whole consort, which consists of instruments all from the same family, and b) broken consort, which has instruments from more than one family. A renaissance consort would likely be a consort playing music from the renaissance period, with instruments that date back to that period.

The only common thing between all brass instruments are that they are made of at least half brass and they all need a mouth piece. There is also the same breathing techniques, though they can differ. For example, the theory that everything that is played is a long tone. Please note that I am not counting woodwind instruments, like saxophone, as brass instruments. If I did so there would be nothing in common with all…
