The Yamaha 20th Anniversary Xeno Series Bb Trumpet features a .459-inch bore combined with a reverse leadpipe design for a very open, free-blowing instrument. The 3rd valve slide stop is extended and placed outside the slide tube for improved projection of sound and to allow the player to reach an in-tune Low F. The French bell bead with a low-dome wire helps maintain a strong core sound at louder volumes and to give the player more enhanced feedback. The side-seam bell construction produces even vibrations. The Yamaha 20th Anniversary Xeno Series Bb Trumpet includes a deluxe retro double case and gold TR16C4 mouthpiece and is available in silver finish with gold-plated finger buttons and valve caps (YTR-8335RS20TH).

This is a great addition to the Yamaha Xeno line. It has a new bell that significantly improves response and tone compared to the otherwise similar 8335RGS. Gone is the 4 7/8" gold brass bell. The new bell is a huge 5 1/4" yellow brass wonder with a french bead and variable thickness. This horn responds more like a Bobby Shew than other Xenos. It is in fact noticeably lighter than other Xenos. Inspite of this lighter weight, the anniversary Xeno is perfect for anything from symphony orchestra to solo recital to jazz band. Just pop in the appropriate mouthpiece. The new bell produces a big, harmonically rich sound that combined with amazing response (no stiffiness) pretty much guarantees this to be a axe any trumpeter will love. Intonation and tonal consistency throughout the entire scale are also outstanding. The new leather clad case is very fancy but offers no improvement over the standard Xeno double case. The anniversary Xeno offers a performance breakthrough worth every penny.
The new 20th Anniversary Xeno is a great sounding horn however it does not have Yamaha's variable thickness 4 7/8" bell as I previously stated. The anniversary bell is bigger @ 5 1/4" and a light weight making it very different from all previous Xenos. The tone is huge and alive with harmonics and always responsive. Their is not even a hint of stuffiness. The high register is also excellent. The newly postioned 3rd valve slide stop is another improvement that facilitates an in tune, easy to reach low F. Another observation is that the finger position on the valves is higher than before (new valve buttons?) and the springs are stiffer. Try this horn. I think you will agree it is pretty special.
