This is a quality horn that can handle professional performances.
When considering the best trombones, this trombone is a larger bore horn, .547”, which is a good size that can work well in both a classical and jazz setting. This horn also comes with the F attachment, which opens up the low range and also allows you to not have to reach out all the way to sixth and seventh positions on the trombone.
Yamaha is a company associated with so many things, but their trombones and other brass instruments have been performing on the highest professional level for a long time. The price of this one is definitely on the higher end, but you are sure to get a good sounding horn that will hold up in any professional situation.
Compare this to the Selma Prelude intermediate TB711 trombone and the Getzen 1047FR Eterna series trombone review.
