Get A Specially-Tailored Instrument For An Authentic Mariachi Sound - The Yamaha YTR-5330MRC Mariachi B-Flat Trumpet
A proud tradition in Mexico, Mariachi style bands are also popular around the world. Essential instrumentation includes trumpet as well as violin, guitar, and instruments that are unique to Mariachi such as guitarron and Mexican vihuela. The YTR-5330MRC has been specifically designed, with advice from prominent Mariachi players, to easily deliver the lively, crisp sound that is a characteristic of the genre.
- Special Silver Plating - Special silver plating with a unique base coat on the body have been painstakingly applied in order to produce a "crisp", lively Mariachi sound. The tuning slide and other slides feature a gold lacquer finish that contrasts beautifully with the silver plated body.
- Reverse Tuning Slide With Long Inner Slide - The inner slides on the tuning slides of Yamaha reverse type trumpets are normally short, but in order to support the relatively large pitch changes required for outdoor performance, the inner tube of the main YTR-5330MRC slide has been made longer to provide a greater tuning range.
- Additional Heavy Bottom Valve Caps - Two additional heavy bottom valve caps that can be attached to alter the instrument's resistance and tone to match user preferences are supplied. Replace just the 2nd or 3rd valve bottom cap with a heavy type, or replace both the 2nd and 3rd valve bottom caps with heavy types to achieve the desired effect.
