Excellent Dependent Rotor System!
The Amati ASL 382 Series Bass Trombone is unique in that it plays beautifully as a symphony bass trombone but can also brilliantly double the tenor. For the new bass trombone player, the slightly smaller .551 bore gives a little more control to create a focused sound. The 9.25 yellow brass bell offers great projection. The ASL 382 also features a dependent double standard wrap rotor system. This trombone comes equipped with a case and a mouthpiece. The Amati ASL 382 Series Bass Trombone is in a lacquer finish.

Comments about Amati ASL 382 Series Bass Trombone:
When I started to play the bass trombone, most of the big brand bass trombones appeared too pricey to me, so I looked for something more affordable. The largest music store in my country had started to sell a new brand, Amati Kraslice, but nobody had ever ordered an Amati bass trombone before. So I became their guinea pig.
The trombone has a solid-feeling case, which is compact and holds the trombone very snugly. The overall build quality seems to be high.
The valve levers are on top of each other, which feels a bit strange at first, should one have tested some of the classic brands. The levers are dependent, so pressing the second valve also closes the first valve.
Even though the ASL 382 has a European bore and is therefore somewhat more compact in size (it feels 'shorter') this instrument has a very full-bodied sound and, as my teacher put it 'it is a *real* bass trombone'.
The accompanying mouthpiece is ok, but it is a bit small to my taste; I preferred the equivalent of Bach 2. I would suggest not to use a mouthpiece larger than that with this trombone.
This bass trombone is excellent to use with trombone studies and with small ensembles. I would not recommend it for symphony orchestra use. All in all, this bass trombone turned out to be wonderfully sounding and a delightful surprise in many respects.
