Excellent Shape & Plays Extremely Well


This Yamaha YSL-354 valve trombone is in very good condition with 90%+ of its lacquered finish remaining.  It does not come with the lyre screw. Please see pictures for details.  The serial number on the trombone is “350896”.  Engraved on the bell is “Yamaha Established in 1887” with “YSL354” engraved above the serial number. “Yamaha made in Japan” is engraved on the bottom of the second valve casing with “Yamaha” on the counterweight.  This trombone comes in a good used condition Yamaha case and has a good used Yamaha 48 mouthpiece included. All I can say is wow! This is an incredible little valve trombone. I am typically a little bit of a purist when it comes to trombones but this valve trombone is really slick! It is easy to play, the valves are great and it looks fantastic.
