YAMAHA YTR-8340EM Eric Miyashio Series Trumpet $2,400.00
This is a very rare trumpet here in the USA. They were only sold in Japan. This is NOT an 8310z copy. I would say this trumpet is an 8310z on steroids ! Man does this trumpet play beautifully. The notes just seem to lock in and slot in so effortlessly, sometimes it is hard to believe the notes are going by that fast, and that clear when you are playing a nice rif. This horn is a dual bore, not a large bore. It is Eric's own design. It has an awesome projecting 5 1/4" bell. Beautiful gold brass lacquer finish. An this horn can certainly deliver. I feel this is the ultimate lead trumpet horn. Back to the specifics on the trumpet . . .The "French Bead" bell rim material allows for enhanced feedback to the player. The thinner bell with wider diameter creates quicker response and powerful sound. Side-seam production enables the instrument to have more open vibration. Top and bottom piston caps and piston stems are made of brass. All three finger hooks are O-shaped rings for better stability, tonal quality and free-blowing. The light weight, hollow 3 slide stopper screw is designed to allow for a more free-blowing. The large bore size, unique to the YTR-8340EM, enables smooth air flow and allows consistent sound throughout the range of the instrument. The unique shape of the main tuning slide brace allows for a more free-blowing feel, helps the player achieve the point where the horn resonates most freely.
This is what Eric Miyashiro has clarified on blogs online regarding specifics on designing his Yamaha custom series masterpiece trumpet ---
--- The EM is not a "Large bore" horn, it is step bore using 3 different bore sizes.
--- With out the valves pushed down, the EM is same bore as the 8310Z.
--- All 3 valve slides tubing (not the port, just the tubing) are in the Larger bore, but the piston and the ports are in Medium Large.
--- Piston, and the valve cluster has fair amount of resistance, so having the slides in Large bore help to compensate the blow.
--- The bigness you might be feeling is the timber of the horn coming from the French bead. Many people felt the new 8310Z was darker, or was bigger, but in fact it was the French bead's way of making you monitor your sound differently.
--- The large bell diameter is an idea I got from German rotary trumpets.
---- German horns are usually comes in small bore with large throat bell, and the bell diameter is bigger than most piston valve trumpets.
--- German horns are known to be darker sounding than the pistons, but they project very well, so I did some research, and found the right diameter to project the tone with out losing the warmth and core.
The photo is a stock Yamaha photo of the YTR-8340EM. The horn offered, is a 2007 model that is used, but it has been well cared for by a professional. It has 2 tiny dings, and a few areas of lacquer wear around the valve casings. This trumpet is also one of my personal trumpets. I offer it for sale on this site
