Yamaha combined the knowledge they learned in creating the Xeno tenor trombones with feedback from some of the world's great bass trombonists. The results speak for themselves; a state-of-the-art bass trombone with all specifications redesigned by an elite team of Yamaha designers and R&D experts. The 830 model includes features such as the yellow brass bell with a thinner wall for enhanced response, nickel Silver slide crook for more substance to the sound, and a rotor design which improves playability. Available with Gold brass bell.
This model is a refined version of the very successful YBL-622 and like its predecessor was developed with the great artist Douglas Yeo of the Boston Symphony. There have been many small technical improvements, but the results are far from small. The sound from the Gold-brass bell is even warmer, the valve register more responsive, and the overall playability more flexible.
