Xeno trumpets have won a place in the world's most prestigious symphonies and among top-level concert band and jazz players. Yamaha's flagship trumpets are heavyweight instruments, made with a metal that has been specially treated to deliver more power, better control, and a richer sound. All feature hand-lapped Monel pistons and slides; 2-piece valve casings; an improved mouthpiece receiver length for better response; pressure-formed tubing that is perfectly round for a smoother air flow; metal valve guides; gold brass mouthpipe; and hand-hammered, one-piece, annealed 4-7/8" bell. The combined result of these features is a highly responsive instrument with a dark tone that does not break up with volume.
All Yamaha wind instruments come with a limited 5-year warranty.

Comments about Yamaha YTR-8345 Xeno Series Bb Trumpet:
This is the best way I could describe this horn! Solid construction, built like a tank!!! It's somewhat heavy, but it pays off in sound. And with the gold brass bell, it throws out a big, fat, thick, warm, smooth and dark sound. I love it! The valves smooth, but they do need some time to break it (still working on mine, they're still a little rough) and they can be a little noisy, but I found the solution for that. I found rubber nylon valve guides and replaced the metal ones it came with, and it has made a difference, they're quieter. Slots very well and that large bore give the upper register a fuller sound, but it does take some time to get used to for some one like me that's been playing ML bore horn for a while.
Take my word, buy this horn, it's worth every penny you'll spend on it. You will not be disappointed!!!!
