Yamaha high-pitched trumpets feature a brilliant tone with crisp clear attacks and excellent control in the high register. Though originally used primarily for Baroque music, they are increasingly used by solo and orchestral players for security with difficult high passages as well as for the clarity and lyrical qualities of their sound. The 6610S is a professional model and features a fixed bell design with a complete set of slides to convert it to either Eb or D. It has a durable silver-plate finish and offers highly accurate intonation.
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.
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 slightly more intense, yet pure and perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing techniques.
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.
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.
Unbraced inner outer tuning slide
As with all Yamaha lightweight trumpets, the YTR-6610S has an unbraced tuning slide which makes the trumpet comfortably open with less resistance.
One-piece, drawn, gold brass leadpipe
This type of leadpipe offers excellent intonation, response and proper resistance. The step bore design is a medium bore trumpet fitted with a large bore tuning slide. This design allows for smoother air flow with less resistance.
Tuning slides for D included
The first, third, and main tuning slides for the D side are included.
