Rotary valve trumpets are traditionally associated with players in German and Austrian orchestras and, because of that association, are sometimes the preferred instrument when playing music by composers such as Mozart, Haydn, Bruckner and Mahler. They are also considered to be more suited to playing parts written for natural trumpets as a rotary valve trumpet tends to produce a tone of warmer quality than its piston-valved equivalent.
Here at Yamaha Music London we sell a range of rotary trumpets from the medium bore intermediate 'entry-level' model, the YTR-436G, to professional models like the YTR-938 Bb trumpet and the 'C' version, the YTR-948 - both are available with Yellow or Gold brass bells. Yamaha also make a rotary 4-valve Piccolo trumpet, the YTR-988.
