The Yamaha YTR6335II Bb Trumpet is a medium-weight professional instrument, designed for all-round playability. They're at home in any setting, from studio to big band, concert band, chamber group, or orchestra. It features a medium-large bore and a yellow-brass bell for a big sound with clear projection, and is ideal for those who need versatility in their horn, who are looking for an instrument that will play and sound just right in any group or setting.
Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are therefore an ideal choice. This means the pistons retain a precise fit and smooth action over many years.
The one-piece bell has an axial (lengthwise) seam, making it a continuous extension of the instrument's material. As a result, the trumpet has pure, uniform resonance and superior tone. A hammered, yellow brass bell produces a pure and perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence. This is achieved thanks to Yamaha's advanced manufacturing techniques.
Hand-lapping pistons and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action. Consequently this improves the response and intonation of the instrument. Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
The main tuning slide on the YTR6335II has a single brace therefore creating moderate resistance in the horn with a slightly darker sound.
