 Perhaps What You've Been Searching For...

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 realised through the skills and ideas of some of the world' s best designers and craftspersons. 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. Xeno Bb trumpets offer a choice of bore sizes; medium large for versatility, and large for a broad sound with plenty of power. Bell material options for Bb and C Xenos include; yellow brass - for clear sound with strong projection, and gold brass - for warmer, deeper sound.

Monel pistons

Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional trumpet pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.

Annealed bell

Yamaha employs special computer-controlled annealing equipment to ensure that the end result of this heating and cooling process is a consistently superior sound.

Hand-lapped pistons and slides

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 and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.

New mouthpiece receiver length


Enhances the responsiveness of the instrument.

Improved braces between valve castings


Add vibrancy and "life" to the sound of the horn.

Hand-hammered one-piece bell

A one-piece bell has an axial (lengthwise) seam, making it a continuous extension of the instrument's material. This results in pure, uniform resonance and superior tone. A hammered yellow brass bell produces a perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing.

Pressure-formed tubing

Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.

Laser-fused pluzuma-welded bell

A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.

One-piece drawn leadpipe


This type of leadpipe offers excellent intonation, response and proper resistance.

Single main tuning slide brace

The main tuning slide on the YTR-8445 has a single brace which helps the response and tonal colour of the instrument.

Specially treated metal


Through research, Yamaha designers have developed a process for treating metal that enables the heavyweight trumpets to deliver more power, better control, and richer sound.

Leadpipe thickness

A thicker leadpipe helps the trumpet have a better tone and response.

Metal thickness

The heavyweight trumpets have heavier metal through the instrument than the standard weight trumpets. Thicker metal helps the trumpets deliver a darker tone that does not break up with volume.

Metal valve guides

Darkened sound and improved tonal projection are the result of metal valve guides.
