For the first time Yamaha has designed a student trumpet with a reversed main tuning slide. An exceptional feel and response. The YTR-3335 has the addition of a brace on the main tuning slide for a more stable and solid sound. The newly designed two-piece yellow brass bell has the perfect parameter for the needs of a student. It has a light response and the ideal thickness of two piece yellow brass bell making it easy for students to get started and develop a brilliant tone.
