Thanks Carl,
That's what I needed. Has this been simplified in the last year or two? Seems I recall there was a need to use two /transposes in the past.

I have two trombone parts written in concert key - F Maj - and just
realized that the notes are one step too high. I don't recall how to
transpose a part without changing the key signature. If I recall
correctly it involved two /transposes, is that right? Can someone help
me? Here's how I lay out my code -

It's quite simple.  Just keep the transpose command after the key signature.

I'd suggest that you replace << \tboneb>> with

\transpose d c \tboneb

(You don't need the << >>, because you aren't setting parallel music, and I
think it's best not to have it, as it's not needed).


% ------ Trombone 1------
tbonea = { all the notes of the piece }
trombonea = \relative c {
  \key f \major
  \set Staff.instrumentName = #"Trombone 1"
  \set Staff.shortInstrumentName = #"Tbn 1"
  \clef bass
  << \tbonea >>

% ------ Trombone 2------
tboneb= { all the notes of the piece }
tromboneb = \relative c {
  \key f \major
  \set Staff.instrumentName = #"Trombone 2"
  \set Staff.shortInstrumentName = #"Tbn 2"
  \clef bass
  << \tboneb >>
