The Xeno Series represents a fusion of craftsmanship that involves outstanding instrument design, advanced technology, and the experience, talent, and dreams of respected artists around the world.
These are trumpets that inspire. Their outstanding power and projection combines with refined resistance and response for extraordinary tonal flexibility. Xeno trumpets continue to evolve with the artists who play them, towards the ultimate goal of ideal musical expression.
The YTR-8345 is a .462″ large bore Bb trumpet. Bell material options for Bb Xenos include yellow brass for clear sound with strong projection, and gold brass for warmer, deeper sound.
We also offer the YTR-8345SII, which is the same instrument as the YTR-8345II but is has a silver-plated finish. Check out the finish options to see more.
New bell design
A new bell design contributes to optimum resistance for a powerful tonal core. The new design also enhances playability in the upper register.
Thinner valve casing and pistons, modified angle of branch tube (knuckle)
Thinner valve casing and pistons, as well as the modified angle of the branch tube (knuckle), result in improved response and provide the performer with an ideal blowing resistance.
Button on 1st slide
The button on the 1st slide is to fine-tune the blowing resistance for better control.
