Get Yamaha's Latest Iteration of Excellence With The Yamaha YTR-9335NYS III Custom Xeno Artist Model New York Series Bb Trumpet
Xeno Artist Model trumpets are based on years of research and development by looking at every aspect of trumpet design and performance to meet the critical demands of artists at the pinnacle of modern trumpet playing. All materials and parts have been thoroughly reviewed, and production refined to deliver an unprecedented balance and sound and feel. The combination of design and collaboration with leading artists around the world continues to elevate Xeno Artist Model performance to new heights.
The New York Series
The New York Series was developed in cooperation with Robert Sullivan, former associate principal trumpet with the New York Philharmonic, and David Bilger, principal trumpet with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Based on traditional styling with advanced refinements, the New York Series offers superb presence and brilliance with solid playing resistance. The YTR-9445NYS-YM model, a C trumpet, features a YM bell for even clearer, tighter tone, and is a favorite with the Boston Symphony Orchestra trumpet section.
Based on new findings acquired through research into vintage trumpets, the dimensions and thickness of parts of the valve casing have been revised for the 2019 model. The refined valve casing and lightweight pistons work together to deliver significantly improved response for even greater clarity in detailed passages.
The Xeno Artist Model trumpet water key contributes to resonance in a significant way. The weight distribution of the water key arm and saddle improve playability and response while enhancing high resister accessibility.
Water Key Cork
A new rubber cork material that is more resistant to deterioration over time is used for the water key seal. These modifications contribute to improved definition, projection, and response. Rubber cork: Cork particles are evenly distributed through a synthetic rubber, achieving greater compression resilience than conventional cork.
The bell features a design that is narrower toward the valve casing, and a square-cornered bell bow that provides the performer with a more balanced resistance. This results in a more three-dimensional sound, with a strong tonal core that improves upper register playability.
Unlike traditional methods where a round rim curl is used, a French bead is an advanced technique that matches the curl to the shape of a semi-cylindrical rim and is characterized by improved feedback of sound to the performer.
Utilizing a leadpipe that is thicker than current designs, an original style Malone Pipe (MB2), and a lighter mouthpiece receiver, tone and response have been improved while providing the performer with ideal blowing resistance. You will hear and feel the difference in tone quality and response.
Brace Design & Position
The design of the bell braces achieves quick response with a brilliant, well-centered tone. The YTR-9335NYS tuning slide brace is located in the standard position.
The slide stopper is designed to prevent the first and third valve slides from falling off. The slide stopper is made of silicone rubber that will not harm the finish. Providing both strength and elasticity, it can remain attached to the instrument during performance. (Length: 12 cm)
