A sophisticated, silver-plated finish gives the instrument a crisp sound, and the two-piece gold brass bell blows freely with rich, wide-ranging colour.

Much of the design of the YCR-4330 GIIS takes inspiration from Yamaha's professional cornet model, the YCR-6330II. The slightly narrower-bored construction offers the same rich, characteristic cornet sound, with a much easier response, and the beautiful silver-plated finish gives the instrument a subtle, yet rich timbre. The bell design is a two-piece gold brass construction, with a dark tonal quality, fantastic projection, and excellent blowing resistance.
The Yamaha YCR-4330 GIIS features new pistons, caps, and buttons, crafted from durable Monel alloy. These new additions help to increase the model's lifespan as well as to improve the quality of sound and playability. The second and main tuning slides are made using the same methods as high-end Yamaha models, ensuring stability, durability and delivering an excellent tone. This cornet also features a redesigned rounded leadpipe, giving the instrument a smooth response and a warm tone.
The YCR-4330 GIIS comes included with a Yamaha CR-11E4S mouthpiece, and a professional-quality Yamaha cornet case. This sturdy construction is designed to protect your instrument from bangs and scrapes. Its compact size is perfectly suited for carry-on luggage, making it ideal for a musician on the move.
