The Yamaha YSL-446GE will help you advance and improve your playing. Boasting great intonation with a fantastic sound without a large price tag, the YSL-446GE will comfortably take you past your grade 5. Thanks to the incredible versatility of the Yamaha trombone, the YSL-446GE can be used in solos, jazz bands, orchestras, or brass bands.
The Yamaha YSL-446GE features everything you would expect from an advancing instrument. The 8-1/2'' bell combined with a 0.547'' bore produces a warm and rich sound which will project to the back of any concert hall. Both the bell and bore sizes are the same as Yamaha's professional trombones and are all crafted and assembled by hand - something you would normally expect only from top-of-the-line models.
The YSL-446GE's intonation is accurate and consistent in all registers and volumes, providing reliability in live and studio environments alike. This model's nickel silver slide has a smooth, consistent action that retains its easiness over time. A nickel silver slide not only prevents corrosion, but also creates a smooth surface that creates a fast action.
The body of the trombone is constructed from quality gold brass. The majority of symphonic brass instruments are manufactured using gold brass thanks to the warm and deep tonal qualities that it can produce. Once the trombone has been constructed, it is finished in a bright gold lacquer to keep it looking newer for longer.
The closed wrap style of F tubing found on the Yamaha YSL-446GE is the most widely played in the world. It involves two loops turned on themselves with bends in the air column pathway. Many trombonists prefer this style as it provides a more compact sound which also balances better than the open wrap style. The YSL-446GE is made using similar manufacturing processes used when making the Yamaha 800 series - Yamaha's premium trombone series. These high-end features make the Yamaha YSL-446GE ideal for anyone looking to upgrade their instrument to a more advanced model, while not paying a premium price tag.
Included with the Yamaha YSL-446GE trombone is a lightweight moulded case. This case offers tough protection for your instrument to ensure it stays in the best possible condition. The case also includes a shoulder strap and backpack straps for easy transportation between musical events. To ensure you get the best possible start at the trombone, the YSL-446GE includes Yamaha's most versatile mouthpiece - the Yamaha 48.
