YTR-8345IIRS Large Bore Xeno Trumpet
*Trumpets are in excellent condition, inspected and maintained by a YAMAHA certified technician.
*Monel pistons - Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional trumpet pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
*Annealed bell - Yamaha employs special computer-controlled annealing equipment to ensure that the end result of this heating and cooling process is a consistently superior sound.
*Hand-lapped pistons and slides - Hand-lapping pistons and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.
*New mouthpiece receiver length - Enhances the responsiveness of the instrument.
*New valve stems, buttons, and caps add to the feel of the horn as well as give the horn a sharper overall look.
*Hand-hammered one - piece bell-A one-piece bell has an axial (lengthwise) seam, making it a continuous extension of the instrument\'s material. This results in pure, uniform resonance and superior tone. A hammered yellow brass bell produces a perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing.
*Pressure-formed tubing-Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
*Specially treated metal - Through research, Yamaha designers have developed a process for treating metal that enables the heavyweight trumpets to deliver more power, better control, and richer sound.
*Leadpipe thickness - A thicker leadpipe helps the trumpet have a better tone and response.
*Metal thickness - The heavyweight trumpets have heavier metal through the instrument than the standard weight trumpets. Thicker metal helps the trumpets deliver a darker tone that does not break up with volume.
*Metal valve guides - Darkened sound and improved tonal projection are the result of metal valve guides.
*One-piece drawn leadpipe - This type of leadpipe offers excellent intonation, response and proper resistance.
