      The Yamaha YSL-891Z Custom Series Trombone was developed with famous trombonists Wycliffe Gordon and Andy Martin. A lightweight trombone, this instrument is great for jazz or commercial playing. The YSL-891Z has a .508 responsive bore and a yellow brass one-piece hand hammered bell. This trombone features two interchangeable leadpipes. The New York leadpipe was developed with Wycliffe Gordon and is considerably longer. The shorter Los Angeles leadpipe was formed in conjunction with Andy Martin. With a mouthpiece and wood case, the Yamaha YSL-891Z Custom Series Trombone is a complete set. It is available in a lacquer finish.

      Comments about Yamaha YSL-891Z Custom Series Trombone:

      In Dec '12 I upgraded to the 891 from a nice intermediate Yamaha horn. (I went with the 8" bell and .508" bore on this model over the slightly smaller 897, although I never played it.) Fit and finish differences of pro models are minimal, but this horn plays effortlessly and provides very lovely tone production using a variety of small (46/12C) and large (51/5G) mouthpieces. I plan to use it for trombone quartet and mixed brass jazz ensemble in small venues for good projection; stick with my large bore for classical quintet, symphony, and church venues. The finish on the bell was a bit inconsistent; perhaps some irregular hand buffing that resulted in a few dull and scratchy areas prior to laquering (minor quality control issue?) I personally can't notice the difference in the two leadpipes but perhaps a true afficionado might. The locking case is compact and asymmetrical; nicely made, but I would have preferred a symmetrical design with a bit more room for small items. Overall a high quality package.
