The Yamaha YTR8340EMS2 Bb Trumpet has been designed in close collaboration with brass legend Eric Miyashiro. The light feel is ideal for gigging musicians for both a clearer projection and more comfortable feel. The one piece yellow brass bell has a larger diameter than standard for louder projection and wider dynamic range. Other customised design features include a French bead rim and a multi-bore system for a more characteristic tone. This model features a silver plating for an extra texture of tone, as well as a comfortable feel and stunning look. The included case and mouthpiece provide you with everything needed to continue your musical journey.

The signature Yamaha model is ideal for fans of Eric Miyashiro, or musicians who want their own voicing to shine through.
The YTR-8340 model of trumpet has a range of new features to benefit the musician. The multi-bore system reduces back pressure with a large bore valve slide to bypass when the piston isn’t depressed. The French bead rim is an advanced shape that aligns with the curling for improved feedback. The side valve casting is non-conventional compared to it typically being on the underside. This results in a more open vibration. These custom features have been designed with Miyashiro to produce an overall tone and playability that suits his style of musicianship. The YTR-8340 proves itself as a forward thinking instrument.
The Yamaha YTR-8340 trumpet comes with a dedicated carry case and mouthpiece. The instrument is stored securely inside the case and avoids knocks and scratches keeping it looking, feeling and performing like new for longer. The case’s felt interior retains the polish quality even when on the move. The EM1 mouthpiece has a comfortable feel and smooth playability, so you are assured to get the best out of your trumpet.
