Gimbal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A gymbal is a device that provides a joint giving "friction free" rotation about 3 planes - a three dimensional joint if you will. The joints in an automotive tailshaft is a good example. The most well known use of a gymbal is in a device known as a gyro. Now here's a big call, Wikipedia shows the same device for both gyroscope and gymbal, so I think one of them is wrong, a gyroscope sits in a gymbal mount - it is PART of the gyro but not the entire device.
Here's what was used on the old G bass trombones that were used in brass bands:
