The bell is engraved with the distinctive "Xeno 20th Anniversary" logo. The thin-walled bell and medium-large bore combine to produce a powerful sound with a quick response while still being able to achieve presence and warmth at softer volumes. The bell design features a French bell bead with low-dome wire similar to the Xeno Artist Models which helps the instrument maintain a strong core of sound at louder volumes and also gives the player more enhanced feedback. The side-seam construction of the bell produces even vibrations.
The 3rd Valve slide stopper
The 3rd valve slide stopper is extended and placed on the outside of the tube like the Xeno Artist Model to allow the player to achieve a true Low F. The stopper ring is 1/4 the weight of a normal ring and does not completely encompass the slide tube. This type of stopper is extremely difficult to make and is a testament to the skilled craftsmen at Yamaha. The combination of these features not only makes this trumpet more ergonomic and comfortable but also improves the projection of sound.
Piston buttons, valve cap, bottom cap
The "Xeno 20th Anniversary model trumpet features the piston buttons of the Xeno Artist Model trumpets while retaining the design of the top and bottom valve caps from the Xeno line. This small adjustment in weight position gives this trumpet a more free-blowing feel with enhanced tonal colors. The buttons and caps are knurled and have a gold-plated finish adding to the stunning beauty of this instrument.
A special version of TR16C4 mouthpiece with gold plated finish is included with the "Xeno 20th Anniversary" trumpet. Gold-plating provides a smooth, soft feel and can also help add warmth and depth to the sound.
The unique retro design double case with two handles and a detachable shoulder strap is both functional and eye-catching, offering enough space for not only one but two trumpets (Bb + C, Bb + piccolo, etc.). ●Please note that this case is not sold by itself. It can only be purchased as part of the YTR-8335RS20TH.
