Kyocera’s Kyoto Opal enriches Yamaha Xeno’s 20th anniversary limited edition Trombone
Kyocera’s proprietary Kyoto Opal is featured in a limited edition trombone offered by Yamaha. The synthetic opal material, showcasing unique radiance, is utilized in the counter-weight and thumb trigger — adding a luxurious feel to the trombone’s design which appropriately fits with the product concept as a special edition (YSL-882O20TH) marking the 20th anniversary of Yamaha’s Xeno series.
Two types of Kyoto Opal are used in the trombone: The polymer type featuring flexibility and applicability to broad areas is used in the counter-weight; and the resin-impregnated type with various rich and subtle hues is used in the thumb trigger.
