WTT/WTB: A good .500 bore for my Yamaha 891Z

I have here in France a very good 891Z. One year old, first owner. 8 inches bell, .508 bore, with its case in perfect condition and 3 leadpipes: 2 genuine ones and 1 Kanstul H8. A few scratches but nothing serious, really. No dings. Perfect slide. Very good instrument, but a bit too big for my taste...

Re: Small bore suggestions

Ok: I like it A LOT! A shame Yamaha doesn’t have a 500 trombone in the actual pro line...
Or maybe the 897Z 490-494 would be very close?

Perhaps it’s time to think about a 500 carbon slide for my 891Z!

Re: Yamaha 352

Thank you for the insights.
I think the bell section is a bit stuffy. But the slide is very nice: this works amazingly well with my 891Z bell section! A bit sharp as the slide is shorter, but the tuning slide helps correcting the tuning.

I do know he developed his own valve trombone: the Souzabone.

I can find it’s an “electric trombone” but I really don’t understand why. Think it’s a larger bore than usual and four valves.
