The Xeno series draws together a map of craftsmanship that involves the design, advanced technology and the experience, talent and dreams of honoured artists from all over the world. The trumpets in this series are here to inspire their players with the incredible power and projection that they produce. Together with their redefined resistance and response these trumpets have great tonal flexibility. Xeno trumpets continue to develop towards their artists' needs in order to be the ideal musical instruments on the market.
The new bell design is narrower toward the pistons and benefits from a squared-corner U-shaped crook that provides a perfect blowing resistance. This results in a dimensional sound and a brilliant, distinctive tone. High note playability has been significantly improved by this.
By utilising a leadpipe that is thicker than current designs, an original style Malone pipe (MC2/MB2), and a lighter mouthpiece receiver, we've achieved improved tone and response an ideal blowing resistance. The finger hook soldering is carefully positioned not to disturb the vibration of leadpipe.
Reduced wall thickness and lighter weight pistons offer a faster response. Modifications to the shapes of the piston button, top cap, and bottom cap, as well as production refinements, have made it possible to deliver a deeper tone while improving projection.
New 3rd valve slide material and production method achieve extra tonal depth and sustain.
The piston port size and production process have been reassessed and modified to provide improved resistance and response. For soft (pp) passages, this offers players improved sound production, while extra margin is available for loud (ff) playing, giving the player unprecedented expressive freedom.
The weight distribution of the water-key arm and saddle have been re-balanced to improve playability and response in the higher register. For the tuning slide, a conventional square crook is used while the socket of the main tuning slide brace has been made heavier to achieve a blowing resistance and vivid tonality that gives a brilliant presence.
The Xeno Artist Model New York trumpet is supplied with an elegant black case with outside pocket for accessories and music.
