Product Details

Yamaha YSL-882O Xeno Series F Attachment Trombone

Designed with the assistance of top professionals, including Pittsburgh Symphony Principal Trombonist Peter Sullivan, the Yamaha YSL-882O Xeno Series F Attachment Trombone features a .547" bore, fixed gold brass leadpipe, 8-11/16" one-piece hand hammered bell, yellow brass drawn one-piece outer slide, chrome-plated nickel silver drawn inner slide, open F attachment wrap, and lacquer finish.

The Xeno features 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 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.

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 additionally larger, 8 2/3" in diameter, which in combination with other design improvements produces a singing, colorful open sound with a projecting solid core. Its open wrap F attachment has an open feel and quick response while the F attachment is engaged.

The YSL-8820 also features a narrow slide, which makes it faster, allowing the player to get around the horn easier, and a rounded slide crook. Eliminating sharp turns in the crook opens the feel and response of the instrument. It has an adjustable thumb paddle, a counter balance weight, mechanical rotor linkage, a slide lock, pressure-formed tubing, and a compact contoured case.

Fantastic!

By Sam Geesey from Lutherville, MD on 9/28/2012 10:06:26 AM

I purchased this horn in December 2011, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made! People recommended the Bach Stradivarius to me, and I tried it, but the Xeno fit me so much better than the Bach did. The tone is amazing, the slide is fantastic, and the open wrap trigger is the icing on the cake. This is a fantastic instrument that works in every setting I use it in, from Jazz Band to Wind Ensemble to even marching band sometimes, this is one of the best trombones I have ever played. I reccomended this instrument highly to anyone who is looking for a quality, professional level trombone

Sings in Every Register

By Eric M from East Hartford, CT on 2/15/2011 10:23:52 PM

I purchased this horn with the Gold Brass Bell in Sept 2010 after 26 years of playing a Yamaha Intermediate level F-Attachment trombone. I had heard wonderful things about Bach, and was dead-set on buying the Bach 42BO. To make a long story short, I played 2 different Bachs, and the Yamaha. I kept coming back to the Xeno. While it as a little heavier, the balance is impeccable, slide movement is unparalleled. Buying the horn was quite an experience, and now that I own the horn, it just keeps getting better. While this horn plays well and "Sings in every Register", I still have one more horn to get for my Jazz playing. It will definitely be a Yamaha!!
