Alto trombones, although less popular than the tenor trombone, have been around since the days of the 'sackbutt'. They have been used in orchestral, ensemble and choral music throughout the history of music from the Baroque period to the present day.
Here at Yamaha Music London we sell a choice of instruments; the Custom Series YSL-871 is the 'standard' model whereas the Custom Series YSL-872 includes a 'trill valve' and 'D' slide offering more flexibility in playing typical Baroque musical passages.
