YTR-8345IIRS Large Bore Xeno Trumpet
*Trumpets are in excellent condition, inspected and maintained by a YAMAHA certified technician.
*Monel pistons - Monel 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.
*Annealed bell - Yamaha 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 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.
*New mouthpiece receiver length - Enhances the responsiveness of the instrument.
*New valve stems, buttons, and caps add to the feel of the horn as well as give the horn a sharper overall look.
*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.
*Pressure-formed tubing-Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
*Specially treated metal - Through research, Yamaha designers have developed a process for treating metal that enables the heavyweight trumpets to deliver more power, better control, and richer sound.
*Leadpipe thickness - A thicker leadpipe helps the trumpet have a better tone and response.
*Metal thickness - The heavyweight trumpets have heavier metal through the instrument than the standard weight trumpets. Thicker metal helps the trumpets deliver a darker tone that does not break up with volume.
*Metal valve guides - Darkened sound and improved tonal projection are the result of metal valve guides.
*One-piece drawn leadpipe - This type of leadpipe offers excellent intonation, response and proper resistance.
Heavy Hitter Stock Pad
The Heavy Hitter Stockpad features a 3/16" thick gum rubber pad mounted to a 12" sturdy wooden base. This pad gives the player a more accurate feel of a snare drum or marching tenor/bass drum. It's the perfect size and weight to throw in a backpack for the drummer on the go.
The Korg TM series allows you to use the tuner and metronome simultaneously. Since this single unit is all you need for both pitch and rhythm training, it has become a favorite lesson tool for brass bands as well as many other types of musicians. The TM-50 is the latest model, featuring a two-level backlight that enhances the visibility of the LCD display. It uses a newly designed needle-style LCD for excellent response, and even greater tuning accuracy. In a first for this series, the entry-level model provides the Sound Back function that allows the speaker to generate the reference tone that's closest to the input sound, giving you a great way to develop and refine your sense of accurate pitch.
A semi-open wrap gives this intermediate level bass trombone a smoother airflow and open sound.
Yamaha's Intermediate model bass trombone features many of the qualities of our top pro models, yet is available at a surprisingly affordable price. It has the same bell and bore size as most pro models, and the bell is gold-brass for a sound both rich and full.
The chrome-plated, nickel-silver, drawn inner slide is very durable and has a quick, sensitive response.
The one-piece, drawn, yellow brass outer slide maintains an accurate diameter throughout its length. This type of construction ensures airtightness, smooth action, and exceptional durability and offers improved response.
Inner slide stockings
Specially designed, one-piece, inner slide stockings guarantee airtight slide construction, and offer smoother slide action and better alignment, even in the extended 6th and 7th positions.
Long-lasting, nickel-silver tubular braces contribute to the stability of the slide and enhance smooth slide action.
Pressure formed tubing
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell
A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
The unique slide lock design on all Yamaha trombones keeps the slide locked in place and keeps it from accidentally falling.
The large, easy-to-hold, nickel-silver bracing guards against possible slide damage if the instrument is dropped and also lessens fatigue while playing.
Yamaha trombones have mouthpipes featuring special acoustic designs allowing for precise intonation and greater blowing control.
The YBL-421G features a semi-open wrap that allows for an open sound and smooth air flow.
