Yamaha YSL882 Xeno Bb / F Tenor Trombone.
Xeno trombones feature a heavier gauge brass and a thick-walled, one-piece brazed bell which has been hand-hammered thousands of times for the ultimate in a big orchestral sound. The F-attachment section gives a free-blowing response and the entire instrument has an evenness and balance you have to experience to believe. The tone is flexible with myriad tonal colors, and gives you both powerful projection at fortissimo and subtle control in the most delicate passages.
Compact wrap F attachment
The compact wrap helps to produce a rich, brilliant tone.
One piece hand hammered bell
A one-piece bell has an axial (lengthwise) seam, making it a continuous extension of the instrument's material. This results in pure, uniform resonance and superior tone. Also, a hand-hammered bell maximizes tone and projection.
The bell is 220mm (8 2/3") in diameter. The larger bell in combination with other design improvements, produces a singing, colorful open sound with a projecting solid core.
Having a narrow slide results in a faster slide technique allowing the player to get around the horn easier.
Rounded Slide Crook
Eliminating sharp turns in the crook will open the feel and response of the instrument.
Adjustable Thumb Paddle
The rotor paddle is adjustable for optimum comfort.
Counter Balance Weight
Adding a weight contributes to the trombones focused projecting sound.
Using a mechanical linkage on a rotor gives it strong, smooth operation.
