Yamaha Xeno F-Attachment Trombone by Yamaha

Item #: YAM882
Price: $2,766.99
 
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 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.

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.

Larger bell

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.

Open wrap F attachment

The open wrap has a more open feel and quicker response while using the F attachment.

Narrow slide

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 foucsed projecting sound.

Mechanical Linkage

Using a mechanical linkage on a rotor gives it strong, smooth operation.

Slide lock

The unique slide lock design on all Yamaha trombones keeps the slide locked in place and keeps it from accidentally falling.

Pressure-formed tubing

Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and smoother air flow.

Newly designed case

The new case is a compact contoured shape.
