YSL-882O Xeno Tenor Trombone with F Attachment
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.
The bell is 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.
The YSL-882OD bell is the same slightly oversized 220 millimeter (8-2/3 inch) type that is standard on Xeno trombones.
* The detachable bell on the YSL-882OD is similar to the YSL-882O one-piece bell, but separates at the base of the flare.
Open Wrap F Attachment
The F attachment features a gentle open wrap that minimizes changes in blowing resistance when the F attachment is used, for freer, more uniform overall playing feel and resistance.
A yellow-brass narrow slide contributes to smooth, delicate tone that is also clear and well defined. Other advantages include comfortable playing resistance plus ample power and brilliance.
The balancer is a compact design that helps to deliver well-focused sound.
Detachable Bell (YSL-882OD)
Not only does a detachable bell allow more compact storage, but the added weight of the bell screw section helps to produce a tighter sound with improved directionality.

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.
The unique slide lock design on all Yamaha trombones keeps the slide locked in place and keeps it from accidentally falling.
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and smoother air flow.
Newly designed case
The new case is a compact contoured shape.
