Wayne Bergeron is well-known on the international music scene for his ability to bring brilliant performances to a wide range of genres. Mr. Bergeron joined the Yamaha development team in 2006 for initial development of the YTR-8335LA(S) Custom model, which has now evolved to its second generation.
Sought after in the screen music, big band, orchestral, and other fields, Wayne Bergeron demands extraordinary flexibility and versatility from his instruments. To meet that demand, the 1st generation YTR-8335(S) has been thoroughly reexamined and updated. The valve casing is the vital “heart” of any trumpet, and in the YTR-8335LAII(S) it has been revised with heavy phosphor bronze bottom caps for the first time in the Yamaha trumpet lineup. The results include brilliant high notes, accurate pitch, and rich harmonics that raise custom trumpet performance to soaring new heights.
