Yamaha YTR-9335NYS Artist Model Professional Xeno Series Trumpet

Robert Sullivan was Yamaha’s main consultant for the NY Series project. Sullivan is an outstanding trumpeter and educator. The project began while he was assistant principal in the New York Philharmonic, and the collaboration was carried out simultaneously as Yamaha developed the CH trumpets in Chicago. The technical secrets learned from the two projects were combined together helping Yamaha learn even more about tonal colors, projection, intonation, and everything else needed to create a truly expressive instrument.

Yamaha HR-668DII Double French Horn

d35edecf-94c6-4466-8bab-2a618eaddaab

Key of Bb/F double, .472″ bore, large throat, 12-1/8″ yellow brass bell, Kruspe-style wrap, nickel silver inner and outer slides, separate Bb tuning, water key, lacquered brass finish. Includes case, HR31D4 mouthpiece, and premium rotor oil. Hammering and annealing are processes so important to the instrument’s acoustic characteristics that Yamaha employs computer-controlled equipment to ensure consistently superior sound. Hammering enables bells to have a rich, resonant tone that blends beautifully with other instruments. Annealing is a cooling and heating process that makes it easier to control the acoustics of the instrument.

The YSL-448G features beautiful rich tone, easy playability, and a balanced response. The bore and bell sizes are the same as professional models, and it boasts a handcrafted assembly which you would normally expect only for a top-of-the-line trombone. The 8-1/2″ bell is made of gold brass for a warm, rich sound which can fill a concert hall and the intonation is very accurate. The slide action is smooth and the quick response and comfortable playability is consistent in almost any register, at almost any dynamic. The YSL-448G offers a large orchestral bore for powerful sound projection and features Yamaha’s original wrap for the F-attachment, which is characterized by a surprisingly open, free-blowing response, and by remarkably smooth valve action.

The YSS-875EX comes with two necks – one straight and one curving – to suit different playing preferences.

The 62 has always been the sax of choice for many of the world’s top pros. Offering surprising value for the price, and amazing flexibility (it can be used for virtually any musical genre) it is characterized by a highly expressive tone, comfortable playability and extremely accurate intonation. One of the biggest new improvements to it is the G1 neck, which gives a better response and more playing flexibility. Also, the entire body has been annealed for a rich resonant sound.
