A new addition to our New York Series Xeno Artist Trumpet lineup, the YTR-9445 NYS-YM features our new 'YM' bell which helps create a clear and well-defined tone.
New YM Bell
Our new 'YM' bell flares more steeply than the original YS4 bell, contributing to this YTR-9445's exceptionally well-defined pitch centre and flexible tone.
The YM bell has a bottom seam that provides optimum balance with the reduced wall thickness, acoustically optimised valve casing and lighter pistons.
Utilising a leadpipe that is thicker than current designs, an original style Malone Pipe (MC2), and a lighter mouthpiece receiver, we've achieved exceptional tone and response while providing the performer with an ideal blowing resistance.
Based on leadpipes designed by renowned brass instrument artisan Bob Malone, the Malone Pipe offers quick response, superior intonation and unparalleled evenness of tone. Originally a trumpet player himself, Bob Malone opened his own custom brass shop in Los Angeles in 1983. Trumpeters flocked to his shop to have him personally customize their horns. His original leadpipe design has enjoyed wide acclaim and is still held in high regard among trumpet players. Since Bob joined our Research and Development team in 2001, his Malone Pipe design has made its way into a number of Xeno Artist models and Custom series instruments. Rich and brilliant tone with excellent projection, the Malone Pipe brings total expression to your music.
Valve Casing, Piston
The reduced wall thickness and acoustically optimised valve casing and lighter pistons, as well as the modified angle of the branch tube, result in superb responsiveness and provide the performer with an ideal appropriate resistance. Modifications to the shapes of the piston button, top cap, and bottom cap, as well as production refinements, have made it possible to deliver a deeper tone while improving projection.
Main Tuning Slide and Brace
A conventional square crook has been chosen while the socket of main tuning slide brace has been taller and made brace heavier than normal to achieve blowing resistance and vivid tonality that add up to brilliant presence in orchestral settings.
The weight distribution of the water key and base has been revised for more playing versatility and easier access to the high notes.
Brace Barance and Position
The shape and position of the bell braces has been modified to achieve better weight balance that results in quicker response and livelier tone with a solid tonal core.
1st Valve Slide Change
A short 1st slide has eradicated the usual 1st piston intonation instability that can occur with a C trumpet. As a result, intonation adjustment and tonal flexibility have been substantially improved.
The slide stopper is used to prevent the trumpet slides from coming off the instrument. The slide stopper is made of silicone rubber, which does not discolor the instruments finish like regular rubber does. It can be left in place while playing. (Length: 12cm)
The TRC-800E double case features a backpack-style design for ease of tranwsport and new designed side pocket.
