Development Artist: Andy Martin

The YSL-897Z was developed with Andy Martin, the world's finest trombone player.


The new balancer found on the YSL-897Z perfectly proportions the instrument's weight.

Interchangeable Leadpipes

The YSL-897Z comes with 2 interchangeable leadpipes, Z1 and Z2.

Inner Slide

The chrome-plated nickel-silver drawn inner slide is very durable and has a quick, sensitive response. In addition, it is a one-piece drawn slide.

Outer Slide

The one-piece, drawn, brass outer slide maintains an accurate diameter throughout its length, and this type of construction ensures airtightness, smooth action, and exceptional durability. The outer slide is fit with extremely close tolerances making the trombone respond quickly and effortlessly.

One-piece 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. A hammered yellow brass bell produces a pure and perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing techniques.
