Trumpets

We have over 50 intermediate and professional trumpets in stock, and over 200 student-level trumpets, so you can find the one that is right for you.

The trumpet is one of the oldest instruments in history. Primitive trumpets are found on every continent and are usually associated with ceremonial and tribal rituals. Many of the early trumpets were actually large sea shells or animal horns, and were used as a signal by “buzzing” the lips into the smallest end of the shell or animal horn. As technology improved, trumpets began to be made of brass, and were long, straight instruments with a small end with a mouthpiece into which the lips were buzzed, and a flare at the end called a “bell,” as it is today. There are many different variations on the trumpet, including the cornet, flugel horn, and piccolo trumpet. The trumpet used in band, is called the B-flat trumpet, and B-flat trumpets are all made the exact same size, so one size fits all.

  • Honed Pistons: The precise fit between valve casings and pistons after honing means no air leakage.
  • Pressure-formed Tubing: Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
  • Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell: A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
  • Nickel silver at stress points: Nickel silver is a very strong material, and when used at stress points, makes the instrument far more durable.
  • Delrin one-piece valve guides: Delrin one-piece valve guides are durable and quieter than metal valve guides.
  • First valve slide thumbhook: Assists in intonation.

  • Nickel silver at stress points: Nickel silver is a very strong material, and when used at stress points, makes the instrument far more durable.
  • Nickel-silver against brass tubing in the slides: Insures smooth operation of the slides because two different metals touching are less likely to stick than two identical metals touching.
  • 0.460″ bore: Enables the young performer to develop a full tone even at the early stages of development.
  • Stainless steel pistons: Offers added durability and smooth operation for greater facility.
  • 1st valve saddle and 3rd valve adjustable ring: Enables to player to adjust for subtle pitch differences at more advanced stages of development.

  • Monel pistons: Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional trumpet pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
  • Hand-lapped pistons and slides: 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.
  • Pressure-formed tubing: Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance. 
  • Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell: A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
Yamaha YTR-300ADS Trumpet

Yamaha YTR-300ADS

  • Yellow-brass bell: This durable bell is laser-fused using a pluzuma welding system which results in a seamless finish allowing for even, consistent vibrations. the yellow-brass material helps this bell achieve increased projection, response and a clear resonant tone at all volume levels throughout the range of the instrument.
  • Corrosion resistant pistons: The YTR-300ADS features monel alloy pistons which are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional trumpet pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
  • Reverse main tuning slide: The reverse main tuning slide offers smooth resistance and airflow for easy, comfortable playability and harmonically rich tone.
  • Hand-lapped pistons and slides: 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.

  • Monel pistons: Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional trumpet pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
  • Annealed bell: Yamaha employs special computer-controlled annealing equipment to ensure that the end result of this heating and cooling process is a consistently superior sound.
  • Hand-lapped pistons and slides: 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.
  • New mouthpiece receiver length: Enhances the responsiveness of the instrument.
  • New valve stems, buttons, and caps: Adds to the feel of the horn as well as gives the horn a sharper overall look.
  • 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 yellow brass bell produces a perfectly-balanced tone with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing.
  • Pressure-formed tubing: Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
  • Pressure-formed tubing: Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
  • Laser-fused pluzuma-welded bell: A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
  • Double main tuning slide braces: The main tuning slide on the YTR-8335 has double braces which help the response and tonal color of the instrument.
  • Specially treated metal: Through research, Yamaha designers have developed a process for treating metal that enables the heavyweight trumpets to deliver more power, better control, and richer sound.
  • Leadpipe thickness: A thicker leadpipe helps the trumpet have a better tone and response.
  • Metal thickness: The heavyweight trumpets have heavier metal through the instrument than the standard weight trumpets. Thicker metal helps the trumpets deliver a darker tone that does not break up with volume.
  • Metal valve guides: Darkened sound and improved tonal projection are the result of metal valve guides.
  • One-piece drawn leadpipe: This type of leadpipe offers excellent intonation, response and proper resistance.
