The YTR8345R 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 a brighter, warner tone. In addition to a relatively heavy mouthpiece receiver, the YTR8345R 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.
Over the 20+ year history of the series, Xeno trumpets have continued to evolve with the artists who play them. In 2014, drawing from the knowledge and innovative concepts learned through the development of the Artist Model Chicago C trumpet, the entire Xeno Bb series was redesigned to attain the ultimate goal of ideal musical expression. This large bore Xeno Bb trumpet model features a reversed leadpipe and yellow brass bell for quicker response and playing agility. The combination of a heavy mouthpiece receiver and removal of the third valve water key results in a superb balance of playability and tonal quality. With this model, musicians will be able to produce a firm sound in all dynamic ranges, from delicate pianissimo to powerful fortissimo.
