Featured Product

Yamaha YSL 448GE Bb/F

Yamaha YSL 448GE Bb/F

The YSL-448G features beautiful rich tone, easy playability, and a balanced response. The bore and bell sizes are the same as professional models, and it boasts a handcrafted assembly which you would normally expect only for a top-of-the-line trombone. The 8-1/2" bell is made of gold brass for a warm, rich sound which can fill a concert hall and the intonation is very accurate. The slide action is smooth and the quick response and comfortable playability is consistent in almost any register, at almost any dynamic. The YSL-448G offers a large orchestral bore for powerful sound projection and features Yamaha's original wrap for the F-attachment, which is characterized by a surprisingly open, free-blowing response, and by remarkably smooth valve action.

Take It Away

We are proud to announce that Windblowers is a registered participant of the Art Councils Take it away scheme. Take it away is an Arts Council initiative designed to help more people get involved in learning and playing music. The scheme allows individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 to apply for a loan of up to £2,000 for the purchase of any kind of musical instrument, and pay it back in nine monthly installments, completely interest free.

The scheme has been extended to allow anyone to purchase an instrument for someone aged under 18. Please enquire for more details.

Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme (AIPS)

Students can now save money when buying an instrument with Windblowers. There is a scheme called the Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme which allows students to buy instruments without having to pay United Kingdom V.A.T. (20 %). This means that when buying an instrument for £1500 you could save £250 on the purchase price.
