The model ASL 363 is an intermediate, large-bore Bb/F Tenor-Bass Trombone. This model was designed with cooperation of artists of the Czech Philharmonic and Amati engineers as an upgrade and improvement to the popular model ASL 361, which it now replaces. The ASL 363 continues with the same basic design of its predecessor such as the 14mm/.551 bore and 235mm/ 8.5, wide throat, bell. Upgrades include a redesigned, open-wrap F attachment, a new rotary valve and lever action as well as a ergonomically designed hand slide brace. The new open wrap greatly improves the tone and response while the new bracing and lever layout increases the comfort and control of the instrument. The ASL 363 is designed for university level band or advanced students.
