Expressive orchestral trombone.

The Yamaha YSL-882OR Xeno Trombone is characterized by a heavier gauge brass and a thick-walled, one-piece brazed bell. The bell has been hand-hammered thousands of times for a big orchestral sound. The open-wrap F 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. This may well be the most expressive orchestral style trombone ever created.

It was developed with Larry Zalkind, Principal Trombone of the Utah Symphony Orchestra. The YSL-882OR features a .547-inch bore combined with an interchangeable leadpipes, reverse tuning slides and new balanced response rotor design for a customized response with less restricted airflow throughout the instrument. The Yamaha YSL-882OR Xeno Trombone includes a case and mouthpiece and is available in lacquer finish.

The one-piece, hand-hammered 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. Its larger bell (8 2/3" in diameter) 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 while using the F attachment.

Its narrow slideresults in a faster slide technique allowing the player to get around the horn easier, and its rounded slide crook open sthe feel and response of the instrument. It additionally features an adjustable thumb paddle for optimum comfort, a counter balance weight for a focused, projecting sound, and mechanical rotor linkage for strong, smooth operation.

Like all Yamaha trombones, the unique slide lock keeps the slide locked in place and keeps it from accidentally falling. Perfectly rounded pressure-formed tubing results in less turbulence and smoother air flow.
This is a beautiful trombone.

Fantastic Bone

Comments about Yamaha YSL-882OR Xeno Series F Attachment Trombone:

I have been a band director for public schools for over 25 years and I have seem many instruments come and go and I have played many of them. I owned a Bach 42B for most of my musical life. A local music store told me about the Yamaha Xeno YSL8820R trombone and thought let's give it a try. After blowing in this trombone for 30 seconds I knew I had to keep playing it. This trombone responds nicely in all registers. The ease at which I am able to push the air absolutely floored me. The tone is warm yet is totally capable of producing a massive orchestral sound when needed. If you are a professional or college bound trombone music student, you owe it to yourself to test drive this fantastic instrument. Truly a joy to play!

Comments about Yamaha YSL-882OR Xeno Series F Attachment Trombone:

I've played this horn several times at various conventions and found it to be both really responsive and beautifully sounding. The slide was great as many Yamaha slides are, and I found that I had full control of the tone without sacrificing projection. I'd say this horn should have serious consideration by any player looking for a pro f-attachment trombone.

Looks fantastic, plays even better

Comments about Yamaha YSL-882OR Xeno Series F Attachment Trombone:

I just received my Xeno right before Christmas, and I instantly fell in love with it. It's my first large-bore bone and it just sings. Throughout all registers, the tone is centered and full. Coupled with my Schilke 51 (which is a little deeper than the 51C4 that comes with the horn), it has a beautiful "fat" sound. Swapping to the 51C4 results in a brighter, "brassier" sound. The slotting is fantastic, but where the horn really shines is in its free-blowing nature. As a former trumpet player, I really enjoyed Yamaha's 8335RGS with its reverse leadpipe design, and the positive characteristics that made that horn a joy to play have carried over wonderfully to its trombone counterpart. The slide action is absolute butter, though I recommend Slide-o-Mix over the creme that comes with the horn. I absolutely cannot tell a difference when the F attachment is activated: I cannot detect any additional resistance or tone difference. The case is gorgeous, though I wish it had a little more room for accessories. No regrets at all, and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a flexible horn.
