Description

Yamaha Custom Trumpets are handcrafted for exceptional quality. Hand-lapped valves ensure a precise fit between casings and pistons while the hand-lapped slides provide fast, smooth action for tuning. The hand-hammered one-piece bell provides maximum projection with a dark tonal color.

Features

Developed with top artists
The YTR-9835 was developed with John Hagstrom of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Two sets of leadpipes
The YTR-9835 comes with 4 leadpipes. Two leadpipes have trumpet mouthpiece receivers in Bb and A while the other two have cornet mouthpiece receivers in Bb and A.

Hand-hammered one-piece bell
A 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.

Hand-lapped pistons and slides
Hand-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 tubing
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
