Yamaha YSL-882O Xeno Tenor Trombone with F Attachment


Add to Cart
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 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. This may well be the most expressive orchestral style trombone ever created.

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.


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

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.

Narrow slide

Narrow slide

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.
