YSL-882O Tenor Trombones with F Attachment
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.

Invaluable development support was provided by Peter Sullivan, principle trombone with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Professor of Trombone, Cleveland Institute of Music and Carnegie Mellon University.
“I always believed it was necessary to have multiple instruments of different brands to cover a variety of playing situations. Since I have been using a Xeno trombone I have that it is the only instrument I need. The main reasons are that it is warm, clear, and can adapt to any situation!”
