Yamaha YTR-9335CHSII Custom Xeno Artist Model Chicago Bb Trumpet
- Instrument Type:
- B-flat Trumpet
The YTR-9335CHSII Xeno Artist Model "Chicago" B-flat trumpet was updated in 2015 with input from John Hagstrom, 2nd trumpet in the legendary Chicago Symphony Orchestra brass section. This new B-flat trumpet pairs with the acclaimed YTR-9445CHSII "Chicago" C trumpet to create an excellent matching set. Together, these instruments feature unparalleled craftsmanship to meet the needs of the highest caliber of trumpet performers.
The newly designed bell features a new design that is narrower toward the pistons and a squared-corner U-shaped crook that provides the performer with an ideal blowing resistance. This results in a more "three-dimensional" sound with a strong tonal core that improves upper register playability.
Utilizing a leadpipe that is thicker than current designs, an original style Malone Pipe™ (MB1), and a shallower mouthpiece receiver, we've achieved improved tone and response while providing the performer with an ideal blowing resistance. To provide the finger hook without soldering to the leadpipe, you can find the difference of the tone quality and the response as well.
Based on leadpipes designed by renowned brass instrument artisan Bob Malone, the Malone Pipe™ is available in several keys, offering quick response, superior intonation and unparalleled evenness of tone: Originally a trumpet player himself, Bob Malone opened his own custom brass shop in Los Angeles in 1983. Trumpeters flocked to his shop to have him personally customize their horns. His original leadpipe design has enjoyed wide acclaim and is still held in high regard among trumpet players. Since Bob joined Yamaha’s Research and Development team in 2001, his Malone Pipe™ design has made its way into a number of Xeno Artist models and Custom series instruments. Rich and brilliant tone with excellent projection, the Malone Pipe™ brings total expression to your music.
Response and blowing resistance
Redesigned parts, such as lighter weight pistons and valve casing, a semi-square crook shaped tuning slide and water key spring, result in improved response and provide the performer with an ideal blowing resistance.
Design and materials have been refined to ensure the most musical response from the instrument’s tubing. The weight distribution of the water key arm and the saddle has been updated to improve playability and response while enhancing high resister accessibility.
Balance has been improved by modifying the shape of the brace, achieving quick response with a brilliant, well-centered tone.
Like the former models, the distance between the mouthpiece receiver and brace on the YTR-9335CHSII and YTR-9445CHSII are similar so that consistent playability is achieved when switching between Bb and C trumpets.
Third valve slide
The third valve slide stopper is positioned to allow the slide to be extended further than normal so that accurate low Eb pitch can be achieved. The button at the tip of the slide and the quarter circle stopper ring help to fine-tune the playing resistance for superior comfort and playability.
