    Hitting a New High: Yamaha Introduces Signature Artist Model Trumpet
    Allen Vizzutti Works With Yamaha to Develop Trumpet That Offers "Best of Both Worlds"

    BUENA PARK, Calif — Yamaha Corporation of America, Band & Orchestral Division, introduces the YTR-9335VS Allen Vizzutti Signature Artist Model Trumpet in the key of Bb, developed by Yamaha trumpet artist Allen Vizzutti and Yamaha Artist Services, Inc. Band & Orchestral Atelier Director Bob Malone.

    Although similar to the groundbreaking YTR-9335NYS New York Artist Model trumpet, the new horn features a number of specialized design features, including brass valve stems and grey finger-button pearls. In addition, the third valve slide stop screw includes a solid screw head, which improves the instrument’s overall feel and response. Similarities to the YTR-9445CHS Chicago Artist Model trumpet include placement of the first valve slide brace, and third valve slide.

    "Bold and beautiful, easy blowing, rich harmonic structure, open high register, seamlessly soars through all styles of music; the best Bb I have ever played, is here," says Allen Vizzutti, International Trumpet Soloist.

    The YTR-9335VS was designed to make high-register playing on a classical trumpet design more efficient. Historically, classical trumpet designs tighten up or lose their intonation when played in the extreme high range, which hovers above the usual range of most classical compositions.

    "This instrument offers the best of both worlds – classical trumpet tone, and stability in the lower and middle registers," says Kurt Witt, Wind Instrument Marketing Manager. "It also enables a very efficient and responsive upper register, similar to the feel of the popular Yamaha jazz trumpets."

    It could be that Yamaha did not want to cannibalize sales of the New York and Chicago Bb trumpets by making too many of these. It's very similar to the New York (I have one), except that it's a bit darker when played softly and a bit brighter when played loudly. Also, compared to the New York model, it slots particularly well and is very efficient. It's a bit like an 8310z that is more polished, a bit denser sounding, and easier to play.
