Xeno Artist Model trumpets are based on years of research and development by looking at every aspect of trumpet design and performance to meet the critical demands of artists at the pinnacle of modern trumpet playing. All materials and parts have been thoroughly reviewed, and production refined to deliver an unprecedented balance and sound and feel. The combination of design and collaboration with leading artists around the world continues to elevate Xeno Artist Model performance to new heights.
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. The YTR-9445NYS-YM model, a C trumpet, features a YM bell for even clearer, tighter tone, and is a favorite with the Boston Symphony Orchestra trumpet section.
