In the 1990's, changes in musical tastes and literature requirements brought about the development of the second generation of 88H trombones. The 88HCL Symphonic Series is the next step in the development of the 88H Series by offering an open wrap design for a free blowing attachment with less resistance that the standard 88H plus a CL2000 Christian Lindberg rotor that removes the slight pop sound that is heard when the rotor is engaged. The CL2000 rotor has a throw that is 40 percent less than a standard F attachment rotor. This rotor is made from anodized aircraft aluminum, making it more touch responsive. The addition of an extra brace just above the rotor and the addition of a choice of heavy (4.5 ounce) or standard (2.1 ounce) weight valve caps allows the CL2000 rotor to be very responsive to the needs of the individual player. The standard cap offers a lively, more focused sound with brighter tones while the heavy cap adds stability for a darker, broader tonal quality.
