Yamaha Xeno YTR-8345RSII Large-Bore Trumpet For Sale!
One of several professional trumpets we are offering for sale. This is a hard-to-find Yamaha Xeno YTR-8345RSII silver Bb trumpet. It is the large-bore version of the more common 8335 Xeno--giving you a more open feel and a bigger sound if you have the breath control to match it—and it is the Gen 2 version with improved slotting, resistance, and projection. For that matter, it also has a reversed leadpipe, making it even more freeblowing and responsive. It is in excellent condition: very small dings and scratches mostly along the bell bow where it looks like some small dents were removed, but no significant dents or dings. Silver plating about 99.9% with little if any wear at all; a small ding in the end of the second valve slide, which is also missing the little pull knob. (That’s a $20 fix at your local tech, or just flip it backward and you’ll never notice it.) All tuning slides are free, valves are fast and smooth and quiet with excellent compression. Just through the shop where it was chem cleaned, polished, lubed, and had new water key corks and tuning slide O-rings installed. Note that this horn is oiled with SYNTHETIC valve oil (specifically, Hetman #2,) and that you must use a similar synthetic oil or thoroughly clean the pistons and casings prior to switching to a petroleum-based product. Comes in the 2nd generation Custom double case which is missing the extra flap that wraps over the zippers, but is otherwise in excellent condition with integrated backpack straps, and lots of room for your C-trumpet, practice horn, or lots of mutes and accessories. Includes Bach 7C and Bach 5C mouthpieces. Very nice slotting on this horn, and probably the most accessible upper register of all the Xenos. An excellent trumpet for an advanced player wanting something a little bigger sounding than a 37 Strad or a standard Xeno, almost impossible to find on the used market, and just in time for the new school year!
