Traditional hand-craftsmanshipaugmented by cutting edge manufacturing technology has created anextraordinary quality of unprecedented consistency. The Xeno' sheavyweight construction produces a solid tone core for a rich strongsound that won' t spread or break up no matter how hard you push it. Itblows freely and comfortably, while still providing enough airresistance for quick response and superb tonal flexibility. And thehand-hammered one-piece bell gives an agile, quick response with abeautiful tone. Xeno Bb trumpets offer a choice of bore sizes; mediumlarge for versatility, and large for a broad sound with plenty of power.Bell material options for Bb and C Xenos include; yellow brass - forclear sound with strong projection, and gold brass - for warmer, deepersound.

Monel pistons
Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choicefor professional trumpet pistons which must retain precise fit andsmooth action over many years.

Annealed bell
Yamaha employs special computer-controlled annealing equipment toensure that the end result of this heating and cooling process is aconsistently superior sound.

Hand-lapped pistons and slides
Hand-lapping pistons and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fitand seal between the pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfectfit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve theresponse 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 acontinuous extension of the instrument's material. This results in pure,uniform resonance and superior tone. A hammered yellow brass bellproduces a perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extrapresence due to advanced manufacturing.

Pressure-formed tubing
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smootherair 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.

Double main tuning slide braces
The main tuning slide on the YTR-8335 has double braces which help the response and tonal color of the instrument.

Specially treated metal
Through research, Yamaha designers have developed a process fortreating metal that enables the heavyweight trumpets to deliver morepower, 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 instrumentthan the standard weight trumpets. Thicker metal helps the trumpetsdeliver 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.

Large bore
Well suited to all-around performance, the larger bore provides freer airflow and bigger sound.
