20 years of the Xeno series
limited anniversary model features attributes of both the
Xeno and Xeno Artist Model trumpets. The combination of these
unique features brings together the "Monukuzuri," or art of
manufacturing that is a shared passion amongst the Yamaha
trumpet design team"
"The bell is
engraved with the distinctive "Xeno 20th Anniversary" logo.
The thin-walled bell and medium-large bore combine to produce
a powerful sound with a quick response while still being able
to achieve presence and warmth at softer volumes. The bell
design features a French bell bead with low-dome wire similar
to the Xeno Artist Models which helps the instrument maintain
a strong core of sound at louder volumes and also gives the
player more enhanced feedback. The side-seam construction
of the bell produces even vibrations"
"The "Xeno 20th
Anniversary model trumpet features the piston buttons of the
Xeno Artist Model trumpets while retaining the design of the
top and bottom valve caps from the Xeno line. This small adjustment
in weight position gives this trumpet a more free-blowing
feel with enhanced tonal colors. The buttons and caps are
knurled and have a gold-plated finish adding to the stunning
beauty of this instrument"
"A special version
of TR16C4 mouthpiece with gold plated finish is included with
the "Xeno 20th Anniversary" trumpet. Gold-plating provides
a smooth, soft feel and can also help add warmth and depth
to the sound"

+ piccolo, etc.). ?Please note that this case is not sold
