Xeno 25th Anniversary
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of their Xeno trumpet series, Yamaha has introduced the limited edition YTR-8335RS model, introducing a combination of old favoured features with new unique specifications. Initially introduced back in 1990, this series draws together a map of craftsmanship involving outstanding instrument design and advanced technology, as well as the experience, talent and dreams of honoured artists from all over the world. The trumpets in this series inspire players with their incredible power and projection. Together with their redefined resistance and response these trumpets have great tonal flexibility. Xeno's long and illustrious history has enabled this model to provide gentle maturity and warm, charismatic tones all in one trumpet.
High Quality Materials and Reliable Fittings
Being of such exceptional value to its players, the YTR-8335RS combines some of the most popular features from the Xeno series so far, with some new unique specifications to give it a limited edition quality. The new lighter and slightly more open designed bell features a stunning 'Xeno 25th Anniversary' engraving, capable of producing warm tones and exceptional projection. Another visible change to this trumpet design is the unique curved double tuning slide brace, that enables sonic benefits. The flowing form of this brace adds ideal resistance to a free-blowing reversed leadpipe design, whilst the rare edition of a dual brace configuration provides stability to the instrument's tone.
To further improve resistance Yamaha has now improved the height of the main slide water key gutter. The ends of the water key have also been changed and are now curled for improved response. The piston buttons, valve caps, and bottom caps are the same as those used on the Xeno Artist Model. The thinner valve casing and pistons provide an instrument with the ideal blowing resistance, as well as improving the trumpets response due to the modified angle of the branch tube (knuckle). This creates a new airflow through the pistons and a lighter block. A reduced wall thickness combined with a lighter piston makes the response easier and less tiring for the performer.
The knuckles have been readdressed which now enables the piping bends in to the block at a 90 degree angle, increasing resistance when blowing down the instrument and in turn creating a brighter tone. The piston buttons, valve caps, and bottom caps are all used to improve the overall balance of the instrument for optimum air resistance and enhanced tone. To enhance the YTR-8335RS' professional look further, these parts are all gold plated. The hollow-head 3rd valve slide stopper screw helps to produce subtly freer air resistance, whilst also improving the trumpets overall playing feel. The button featured on the first slide of the trumpet is used to fine-tune the blowing resistance to create better control. The medium-large bore provides a sufficient amount of resistance to produce a bright and centred tone with plenty of colour and character. Finally the barrel-shaped ferrule, transferred across from the Xeno artist model, adds further depth and richness to the instrument's timbre. This design is made up of some of Yamaha's highest quality materials and features reliable, durable fittings that will last for years to come.
