Overview

Amazing Rotary C!

The YTR-948FFMS Custom Series Rotary C Trumpet incorporates the newest design features with the tradition of classic European rotary trumpets. The 948FFMS features a .443-inch bore plus a new leadpipe, valve section and "Light Touch" rotor mechanism for a responsive instrument. The YTR-948FFMS Custom Series Rotary C Trumpet includes a case and mouthpiece and is available in silver (YTR-948FFMS) finish.
The YTR-948FFMS Custom Series Rotary C Trumpet was designed by Brassmeister Thomas Lubitz at the Yamaha Frankfurt Atelier. The FFM in the model number stands for Frankfurt am Main. The YTR-948FFMS was developed with input from Markus Bebek, Associate Principal Trumpet of the Opera Frankfurt am Main.

Leadpipe

The taper of the leadpipe on the rotary valve trumpet has the optimum taper for superb intonation and dark powerful tone.

Hand-Hammered One-Piece Bell

A one-piece bell has an axial (lengthwise) seam, making it a continuous extension of the instrument's material. This results in pure, uniform resonance and superior tone. A hammered, gold brass bell produces a more broad and rich, yet perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing.

Hand-Lapped Valves and Slides

Hand-lapping rotary valves and slides ensure an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the valve and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.

Pressure-Formed Tubing

Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.

Tone

The tone of the YTR-948FFMS is softer and rounder than piston valve trumpets.
