Most horns with a .525 bore have an 8 inch bell. In the Yamaha 446G, you get the .525 inch bore size with an 8 and a half inch bell. This is how Yamaha gets its brassy reputation. Go with a little extra flare at the end for sound projection.
Yamaha construction is known as much for its solidity and air tightness as it is for flawless slide action. The 446G is an introductory model to this cool brand.
With most brands, music instructors often tell their students to skip over those horns termed as intermediate. The 446G is indeed an intermediate horn but since it plays so well and costs less than more advanced models, this is an excellent choice for a players first trigger trombone.
