Unique benefits

  • Inner slide
  • The chrome-plated nickel-silver, drawn, inner slide is very durable and has a quick, sensitive response.
  • Outer slide
  • The drawn, yellow brass outer slide maintains an accurate diameter throughout its length, and this type of construction ensures airtightness, smooth action, exceptional durability, and offers improved response.
  • Inner slide stockings
  • Specially designed one-piece inner slide stockings guarantee airtight slide construction, and offer smoother slide action and better alignment, even in the extended 6th and 7th positions.
  • Tubular braces
  • Long-lasting nickel-silver tubular braces contribute to the stability of the slide and enhance smooth slide action.
  • Hand-hammered one-piece 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. A hammered yellow brass bell produces a perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extrapresence due to advanced manufacturing techniques.
  • Hand-lapped tuning slide
  • Hand-lapping slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.
  • Pressure-formed tubing
  • Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
  • Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell
  • A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
  • Slide lock
  • The unique slide lock design on all Yamaha trombones keeps the slide locked in place and keeps it from accidentally falling.
  • Bracing
  • The large, easy-to-hold, nickel-silver bracing guards against possible slide damage if the instrument is dropped and also lessens fatigue while playing.
  • Mouthpipe
  • Yamaha trombones have mouthpipes featuring special acoustic designs allowing for precise intonation and greater blowing control
