Yamaha Xeno trombones, with the assistance of key orchestral players throughout the world, represent some of the best trombones available using advanced design technology. Yamaha trombones offer a rich, projecting sound with a solid core and a wide spectrum of tone colors.
The Yamaha YSL-882GO Xeno trombone has a one-piece bell with a lengthwise seam, making it a continuous extension of the trombone's material. This results in pure, uniform resonance and superior tone. The large 8 11/16" bell in combination with other design improvements produces a singing, colorful open sound with a projecting solid core.
The open wrap F attachment has a more open feel and quicker response than the conventional wrap. The narrow slide results in a faster slide technique allowing you to get around the horn easier. The rounded slide crook has no sharp turns, which opens the feel and response of the trombone.
Other important features of this custom trombone include an adjustable thumb paddle, counterbalance weight, mechanical linkage on the rotor for strong, smooth operation; and last but not least, a gold brass bell.
