The 350C is not only for small children; it is also suitable for adults. The secret of this revolutionary design is the ascending valve. When played ‘open’ the trombone uses the full length of Bb tubing. When the lever pressed the key of the instrument ascends a step, which eliminates the need for 6th and 7th slide positions.

Conventional trombones are long, awkward instruments. The 350C is not only shorter, but has considerably improved balance, making it easier and more comfortable to hold. Many children are fascinated by the trombone. It has a strong and pleasing tone which can slide smoothly from note to note, and it’s visually exciting—-it looks fun! But unlike most other instruments, most trombones cannot be played by small children.

Modern trombones were designed for adults, and many would-be beginners just can’t stretch their arms far enough to play all the slide positions. That’s why Yamaha created the 350C. So basically, this is a full-sized trombone, using the traditional slide positions, but it’s much shorter in length. With its ascending valve, you can play a full scale without using the two farthest positions.
