    By the description, it has to be a 9310z :)
    Official launch Monday, the 22nd October.

    It will be interesting to test this one against a Harrelson, which in my experience is the easiest horn to play, once you have developed your biceps.

    Sounds to me Yamaha is reinventing the Getzen Eterna 700s :p

    No bro, no way. I can imagine they looked at the 700S, played it and thought: we have to do everything different, that must make the perfect horn.

    I'm sure it's a fine horn, but on paper (specs) it doesn't look very different from other 6 series, except for the "new one-piece valve casing" (meaning cheaper than the 2-piece Xeno valves), but the devil is in the details/tweaks. Will try to test it during my Xmas holidays.

    A reinvented Eterna? There is more reason to presume that the new Yamaha commercial is a renewed 6330B, the Till Brönner horn.
    Same parents, the Yamaha atelier in Hamburg, and they share the two piece bell and the reverse leadpipe. New could be the new valve casing, the brace in the tuning slide and the leadpipe and bell material (goldbrass). Sounds as a good combination of old and new insights.
    BTW I really liked the YTR6330B (and its crocodile bag), always regretted not to have tried one more seriously (I played one only briefly at a stand on the The Hague trumpetday years ago).
