In Cuba, a típica is an ensemble mainly composed of wind instruments, which was very popular in the mid-19th century. Orquesta típica_sentence_9

One of the earliest, Orquesta Flor de Cuba, had the following make-up: cornet, trombone, figle (ophicleide), two clarinets, two violins, double bass, kettle drum, and güiro. Orquesta típica_sentence_10

The ophicleide was a sort of bass bugle with keys, invented in 1817, now superseded by the tuba and/or baritone horn, the name surviving for a pipe organ stop; the trombone would be more typically a valved rather than a slide instrument. Orquesta típica_sentence_11

In the early 20th century, there were still several popular orquestas típicas, such as those directed by Enrique Peña and Félix González. Orquesta típica_sentence_12

In 1915, charangas began to replace orquestas típica, a process which was largely complete by 1925. Orquesta típica_sentence_13

Charangas would become, along with son conjuntos and Cuban-style big bands, one of the main precursors of the salsa ensemble, which is characterized by the inclusion of multiple trombones. Orquesta típica_sentence_14

Salsa ensembles can also feature trumpets along with piano, double bass, güiro, conga and bongó. Orquesta típica_sentence_15

In the salsa context, the term típico usually refers to the sound of the conjuntos of the 1940s, such as Arsenio Rodríguez's, or to those of the original charangas danzoneras (charangas típicas), such as Arcaño y sus Maravillas, since orquestas típicas never reached the United States.
