YTR-335RS Xeno Series Bb Trumpet. The YTR-335RS achieves smooth resistance and airflow that only a reverse tuning slide design can offer, for easy, comfortable playability and harmonically rich tone. The mouthpiece receiver design has been improved to deliver brighter, warmer tone. In addition to a relatively heavy mouthpiece receiver, the YTR-335RS features a single main tuning slide brace and a finger ring design that result in an ideal balance between great playability and wide range of tonal expression. Xeno (pronounced 'Zeno' ) trumpets are designed for those who want power and projection as well as a big warm sound. Developed from more than 30 years' research with leading artists throughout the world, Xeno trumpets incorporate their dreams, their experience, and their talents-as realized through the skills and ideas of some of the world's best designers and craftspersons. The YTR-335 Xeno trumpet is finding acceptance in major symphonies and on jazz and commercial stages across the world. Traditional hand-craftsmanship augmented by cutting edge manufacturing technology has created an extraordinary quality of unprecedented consistency. The Xeno' s heavyweight construction produces a solid tone core for a rich strong sound that won' t spread or break up no matter how hard you push it. It blows freely and comfortably, while still providing enough air resistance for quick response and superb tonal flexibility. And the hand-hammered one-piece bell gives an agile, quick response with a beautiful tone. This new generation of Xeno trumpets have an improved, lighter response with control in all dynamics without losing its versatility. A lighter weight piston and valve casing concept as well a new long-type water key has been implemented to optimize the overall performance. The redesigned bell taper contributes to the instrument's strong presence and centered tone

Wonderful horn--smooth, responsive, perfect intonation. The reverse tubing makes for a very open, through-blowing horn.

This is a awesome horn. Had it for 6 days now and it is great. The valves have very smooth action and are quiet. I upgraded to this from a 4325s. I can produce a darker tone in the lower register even with my shallow mouthpiece. My range did come out of the pocket just a little bit because I was so used to the resistance and standard leadpipe on my 4325s but I just need to adjust to the horn. Almost already have it back in the pocket after 6 days. The only con that I have about this trumpet is that there is no spit valve on the third valve slide so the spit get trapped in there often and comes out through the bell. I used it this morning playing at a Disneyland marathon and the spit did come out through the bell quite often. Other than that, the trumpet is great. The case is nice too. You can fit two trumpets in it.

I've owned my Yamaha Xeno for about 8 years now. I don't play like I used to, but I regularly performed Jazz gigs internationally, as well as playing occasional concert and symphonic music. The horn is incredible. Best thing is your sound can change drastically by using a different mouthpiece. I also used this horn before and after performing with the Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps in DCI. I've never played a trumpet that provided sound and company like this one. I will never part with it because of how amazing it is!

I have owned this horn for awhile now and let me tell you, it's a good quality horn. Produces a good quality sound. For me, I get more of a rounded bright sound, which I like.
