Yamaha s third generation of heavyweight trumpets combines the company s knack for computer-controlled technology with its passion for handcrafting engineering. The professional Xeno series trumpet delivers a great example of bringing these forces together. The YTR8335RGS features a reverse main tuning slide.FEATURESExtra-heavy mouthpiece receiverKeeps tone focused throughout the entire range of the instrument. Reversed main tuning slidePromotes a free blowing feel to the horn. Monel pistonsMonel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional trumpet pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years. Hand-hammered one-piece bellA one-piece bell has an axial (lengthwise) seam, making it a continuous extension of the instrument s material. This results in pure, uniform resonance and superior tone. A hammered yellow brass bell produces a perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing. Annealed bellYamaha employs special computer-controlled annealing equipment to ensure that the end result of this heating and cooling process is a consistently superior sound. Hand-lapped pistons and slidesHand-lapping pistons and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument. Pressure-formed tubingPerfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance. Laser-fused pluzuma-welded bellA high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations. One-piece drawn leadpipeThis type of leadpipe offers excellent intonation, response and proper resistance. Single main tuning slide braceThe main tuning slide on the YTR-8335RGS has a single brace which helps the response and tonal c
