The New York Series was developed in cooperation with Robert Sullivan, former associate principal trumpet with the New York Philharmonic, and David Bilger, principal trumpet with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Based on traditional styling with advanced refinements, the New York Series offers superb presence and brilliance with solid playing resistance.
Xeno Artist Model trumpets are based on in-depth research into vintage instruments that are considered masterpieces, but they are not simply reproductions. All materials and parts have been thoroughly reviewed, and construction refined to deliver unprecedented balance and performance. Ongoing collaboration with leading artists around the world continues to elevate Xeno Artist Model performance to new heights.

Based on new findings acquired through research into vintage trumpets, the dimensions and thickness of parts of the valve casing have been revised for the 2019 model. The refined valve casing and lightweight pistons work together to deliver significantly improved response for even greater clarity in detailed passages.
Water Key Cork
A new rubber cork material* that is more resistant to deterioration over time is used for the water key seal. These modifications contribute to improved definition, projection, and response.
*Rubber cork: Cork particles are evenly distributed through a synthetic rubber, achieving greater compression resilience than conventional cork.
The bell features a design that is narrower toward the valve casing, and a square-cornered bell bow that provides the performer with ideal blowing resistance. This results in a more "three-dimensional" sound, with a strong tonal core that improves upper register playability.
Unlike traditional methods where a round rim curl is used, a French bead is an advanced technique that matches the curl to the shape of a semi-cylindrical rim and is characterized by improved feedback of sound to the performer.
Utilizing a leadpipe that is thicker than current designs, an original style Malone Pipe™ (MB2), and a lighter mouthpiece receiver, we have achieved improved tone and response while providing the performer with ideal blowing resistance. A finger hook that is not soldered to the leadpipe is provided. You will hear and feel the difference in tone quality and response. The MB2 leadpipe works in combination with the bell to provide solid playing resistance.
Based on leadpipes designed by renowned brass instrument artisan Bob Malone, the Malone Pipe™ is available in several keys, offering quick response, superior intonation and unparalleled evenness of tone. Originally a trumpet player himself, Bob Malone opened his own custom brass shop in Los Angeles in 1983. Trumpeters flocked to his shop to have him personally customize their horns. His original leadpipe design has enjoyed wide acclaim and is still held in high regard among trumpet players. Since Bob joined Yamaha’s Research and Development team in 2001, his Malone Pipe™ design has made its way into a number of Xeno Artist models and Custom series instruments. Rich and brilliant tone with excellent projection, the Malone Pipe™ brings total expression to your music.
The Xeno Artist Model trumpet water key contributes to musical resonance in a significant way. The weight distribution of the water key arm and saddle improve playability and response while enhancing high resister accessibility.
Brace Design & Position
The design of the bell braces achieves quick response with a brilliant, well-centered tone. The YTR-9335NYS tuning slide brace is located in the standard position.
The slide stopper is designed to prevent the trumpet slide from falling off. The slide stopper is made of silicone rubber that will not harm the finish. Providing both strength and elasticity, it can remain attached to the instrument during performance. (Length: 12 cm)
TRC-801E double case that can be carried in your hand, over your shoulder, or like a backpack.
