However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The Xeno Series

The Xeno series draws together a map of craftsmanship that involves the design, advanced technology and the experience, talent and dreams of honoured artists from all over the world. The trombones in this series are here to inspire their players with the incredible power and projection that they produce. Together with their flexible myriad tonal colours these trombones produce powerful projection and subtle control, even through the most delicate of passages. Xeno trombones continue to develop towards their artists' needs in order to be the ideal musical instruments on the market.

One Piece Hand Hammered Bell

The one piece bell featured on this YSL-881 trombone helps the instrument to achieve a pure, and dominant tone. The bell has an axial seam that makes it a continuous addition of the instruments material allowing for these superior tones.

Larger Bell

The larger bell has been developed to perform a singing, colourful, open sound that also projects a solid core.

Narrow Slide

Thanks to the narrow slide this trombone is able to produce a quicker sliding technique that will allow its player to manage the horn easier than they could previously.

Rounded Slide Crook

By excluding sharp turns in the crook the feel and response of the instrument will be opened.

Slide Lock

The YSL-881 features one of Yamaha's unique slide lock designs that helps to keep the lock in place whilst also stopping it from falling off.

Pressure-Formed Tubing

Yamaha have positioned perfectly rounded tubing on the instrument to help lessen turbulence and to create a smoother airflow.

Xeno Compact Contoured Case

Yamaha worked hard to redesign their Xeno trombone case into a compact and contoured product. These changes have made the case more secure overall. The contoured shape enables your trombone to fit tightly into place whilst the interior holds it in and stops it from moving around during travel. The compact half of the design gives players a smaller case to carry to and from gigs and lessons.

Everything You Need

The Yamaha Xeno trombone doesn't come alone, in fact it includes a SLC-88U trombone case as well as a Yamaha Sullivan mouthpiece. Making this outfit the perfect all-in-one package to get you started. Use this instrument straight from the box with everything that you need included.

Included Mouthpiece

Yamaha's standard series mouthpieces enable smooth attacks, secure control and easy playability. At the perfect weight balance for an all-round use this mouthpiece is the perfect addition to this outfit.
