Yamaha Xeno

The Xeno features 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 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.

Yamaha Professional Models

Yamaha Professional model trombones have long been popular thanks to their quick and agile response, highly accurate intonation, and rich warm tone. The new Pro series have kept all these fine qualities, while adding some design features from our top of the line Xeno trombones. Their broad sound has a well defined tonal core for excellent projection in all registers at any dynamics. The series offers two different bore sizes to meet individual playing needs: the 620 features a large bore strong orchestral style performance, while the 640 has a medium-large bore for versatility in all musical genres. Both models feature two-piece bells for a quick response. The narrow style slide and medium weight construction provides exceptional playing flexibility.

Yamaha Custom Z

Designed with world-renowned trombonists Andy Martin and Alastair Kay, the YSL-897Z Custom Z trombone is perfectly suited for a wide variety of performance situations and features two interchangeable leadpipes named Z1 for Mr. Martin and Z2 for Mr. Kay
