The Yamaha YTR9445 Xeno Artist Model New York C Trumpet features a YM bell for a well-defined pitch centre and flexible tone. Modifications have been made to the shapes of the piston button top cap and bottom cap – resulting in a deeper tone and outstanding projection. A square crook taller main tuning slide brace and heavier brace have helped to achieve blowing resistance and vivid tonality. The weight distribution of the water key and base have been improved to give easier access to the high notes. The position and shape of the bell braces have been changed to enable a better balance of weight resulting in a quicker response and livelier tone with a solid tonal core. To discourage 1st piston intonation instability that often occurs with a C trumpet Yamaha has included a shorter 1st slide. A silicone rubber slide stopper is also included to ensure the slides do not come off during use. The Yamaha Xeno Artist Trumpet comes equipped with a double case and mouthpiece.
