Reverse tuning slide and unprecedented power.

The YTR-8335RS achieves smooth resistance and airflow that only a reverse tuning slide design can offer, for easy, comfortable playability and harmonically rich tone. The mouthpiece receiver design has been improved to deliver brighter, warmer tone. In addition to a relatively heavy mouthpiece receiver, the YTR-8335RS features a single main tuning slide brace and a finger ring design that result in an ideal balance between great playability and wide range of tonal expression.

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 realized through the skills and ideas of some of the world's best designers and craftspersons. The YTR-8335 Xeno trumpet is finding acceptance in major symphonies and on jazz and commercial stages across the world.

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.

This new generation of Xeno trumpets have an improved, lighter response with control in all dynamics without losing its versatility. A lighter weight piston and valve casing concept as well a new long-type water key has been implemented to optimize the overall performance. The redesigned bell taper contributes to the instrument's strong presence and centered tone

You can't go wrong with a Yamaha

Comments about Yamaha YTR-8335RS Xeno Series Bb Trumpet:

I owned the first generation Xeno 8335RGS for about 10 years and loved the horn. But I sold it for what I thought would be a somewhat better and brighter horn. Now, after having played the other horn (for which I cannot say anything bad, except that it wasn't the horn for me) for over a year, I decided I wanted something new. After reading multiple reviews for the new Xeno 8335RS and trying it at a local music store and in my big band, I knew I had to have one. I could not be more pleased! This horn has everything the old one did ... great sound, intonation, slotting and ease of playing, plus the benefit of a yellow brass instead of gold brass bell, making it brighter and projecting even more. You simply cannot go wrong buying a Yamaha, no matter which model. They are extremely consistent throughout the entire model line and will never disappoint!

Hard to Believe

Comments about Yamaha YTR-8335RS Xeno Series Bb Trumpet:

A couple of years ago I bought a YTR8335LA. There were some growing pains working into this horn after playing a YTR936 for many years. I did work into the LA model and the sound improvement was with it. I thought I was completely happy with the horn. I read a few reviews on the RS and became interested in this reverse lead pipe. Talked to a friend who had experience with them and said he liked the open blowing concept. When I got the 8335RS there were no growing pains it has been a pleasure and perfect match for me. The hardest thing is to take a day off to rest the chops. Haven't been able to do that yet.

    Comments about Yamaha YTR-8335RS Xeno Series Bb Trumpet:

    I bought this for my 13 year old as we are investing in a long term instrument after using a beginner Yamaha model. My son chose this one for the reverse lead and the weight was lighter compared to others he tried.

    Left my Bach Strad for it


    from Tampa Bay, FL

    Comments about Yamaha YTR-8335RS Xeno Series Bb Trumpet:

    This is the horn that made me give up my beloved Bach Stradivarius model 43 after many years together-- a horn I'd previously believed I would never give up. I'd never found a horn I liked better than my Strad 43, and I never liked previous Yamaha horns I'd played. But a friend loaned me his first generation Xeno 8335RGS (circa 2013) to try, and it was instant love. Yamaha came out with the 2nd generation (Xeno II) shortly after his was made, so my only purchase choice was the new generation Xeno II. I bought my Xeno II 8335RS in January, and after 6 weeks of daily use, I can honestly say this horn is fantastic. It's even better than my friend's first gen model. Intonation is spot-on with minimal lip up/down or trigger adjustments needed, even on the "tough" notes like low D or top-of-staff G#. Notes slot in as if they're carved in granite. Transitions from note to note are smooth and solid. Sound is bright and powerful. Yamaha's 30 years of collaborative research on this horn has REALLY paid off, and you can play this thing with absolute confidence. Yesterday I played my Strad 43 for the first time since I got the Xeno, playing the same musical passage several times alternating back and forth between Strad and Xeno. The Xeno almost played itself, while the Strad took noticeably more effort to play smoothly and remain on-pitch. I couldn't wait to put the Strad back in its case. Don't think twice-- buy this horn!!

    Awesome Trumpet!

    Comments about Yamaha YTR-8335RS Xeno Series Bb Trumpet:

    I bought the new Xeno as an addition to my trumpet collection and it is awesome! The tone quality is second to none. The valves are very smooth and quick. I really like the changes in design that Yamaha made. Yamaha took a great horn and made it even better! And, the new case is very nice! I especially like the shoulder straps. Highly recommend the YTR-8335RS!
