Product InformationThis is the NEW Wayne Bergeron model Trumpet from Yamaha, with the model code YTR-8335LA02. This is the silver plated model, there is also a gold lacquer version available. Designed in partnership with the world-renowned Trumpet player Wayne Bergeron, this model is an updated and improved version of the original LA model trumpets.
Wayne Bergeron is one of the most sought-after musicians in the world, his Trumpet playing and solos can be heard on many of the most famous motion pictures including Rocky Balboa, The Incredibles, Minions and many more. You may also know him from playing lead Trumpet with Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band.
The original LA was widely praised and it became a very popular here at Dawkes Music. This new and improved version has been optimised to achieve even greater efficiency across the whole range of the instrument. What we've found is that these Trumpets are not just for 'lead' players in Big Bands, they are very versatile for many types of playing and easy to play. These new versions have an even more direct response and bigger depth to the tone.
Yamaha have achieved these improvements through a series of technical modifications and re-designs whilst retaining the excellent playability of the original LA model. The primary changes being:
New Two-Piece Brass Valve Casing
New Phosphor Bronze Parts & Artist Model Parts
- The valve casing is the beating heart of the Trumpet
- The raw materials, production process and braces have been re-designed and improved
- This delivers a more powerful tone, optimal resistance and feeling of vibrancy
- The shape, weight and material of all the caps and screws was analysed to see how they could be improved
- For the first time in the Yamaha Trumpet range they have introduced phosphor bronze parts
- With player testing the new parts were found to add sizzle in louder dynamics but also increase depth when playing softly
- The new LA features heavy-bottom phosphor bronze valve caps
- The water key, upper valve caps, valve buttons and pads are all from the Artist range
- The 3rd slide stopper screw is new for these 2nd Gen Jazz Models (LA/EM)
- The new LA models retain the 5" A-Type one-piece yellow brass bell
- This bell features a French bead and Side seam design for the ultimate response
- The LA comes with a TR-14B4 mouthpiece and a smart black case with backpack straps
