I always hesitate to use terms like "flawless" or "mint, " but I cannot find a single scratch, dent, ding, or other problem with this horn. A hand-crafted instrument with a yellow brass, one-piece, hand-hammered bell which is laser-welded like a Xeno. Hand-lapped pistons and slides-still fast and smooth and quiet-look barely played at all.

Ashantee Music is a family-owned store serving musicians of all levels for almost twenty years.
We started as a worship ministry, and our passion remains equipping young church musicians with more than they could ask or imagine. Please look us up to find out more about who we are and what we do!Though piccolo trumpets are primarily used to play the exciting yet demanding 1st trumpet parts in Baroque literature, modern composers have also begun to incorporate them in contemporary' and even popular-music. Yamaha's YTR-9830 piccolo trumpet is easy to play, has a beautiful tone and has excellent intonation. It can be converted to either Bb or A by changing the leadpipes provided. A fourth valve adds an extended range. M bore: 11.3mm (0.445"). Includes leadpipes for Bb or A. 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 yellow brass bell produces a perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing. Hand-lapping pistons and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the pistons 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. Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous, even vibrations. One-piece drawn gold brass leadpipe. This type of leadpipe offers excellent intonation, response and proper resistance.
