This is the Xeno YTR-8445, a trumpet that follows in Yamaha's tradition of outstanding C trumpets. This version of the YTR-8445II distinguishes itself by virtue of a standard brass bell. It is available with either a lacquer finish or with a silver plating. The YTR-8445II with gold brass bell is can be seen in #J19145.
Yamaha's brass division is responsible for producing some of the finest trumpets in the world today. The Xeno line represents everything most players are seeking in a professional trumpet. They have impeccable build quality, innovative design and a manufacturing efficiency that combine to make the Xeno line one of the best values in professional trumpets today. The Xeno Series represents a fusion of craftsmanship that involves outstanding instrument design, advanced technology, and the experience, talent, and dreams of respected artists around the world. These are trumpets that inspire. Their outstanding power and projection combines with refined resistance and response for extraordinary tonal flexibility. Xeno trumpets continue to evolve with the artists who play them, towards the ultimate goal of ideal musical expression.
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.
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.
Improved braces between valve castings
Add vibrancy and "life" to the sound of the horn.
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.
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
Laser-fused pluzuma-welded bell
A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
One-piece drawn leadpipe
This type of leadpipe offers excellent intonation, response and proper resistance.
Single main tuning slide brace
The main tuning slide on the YTR-8445 has a single brace which helps the response and tonal color of the instrument.
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.
A thicker leadpipe helps the trumpet have a better tone and response.
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.
Brilliant tone and incredible projection
Fast and graceful valve action
Broad dynamic range response
Includes hard case and heavyweight mouthpiece with gold-plated rim and cup
