High-end, silver-plated cornet designed to please the most discerning tastes of professional players

Yamaha's Xeno line of professional brasswind instruments has really established itself well as a reliable and very high quality option for professional players, and the YCR-8620S truly lives up to that standard!  Xeno cornets were designed with help and input from some of the best players in the world, including David King, a cornet soloist who serves as Head of Performance Studies at the University of Salford, as well as principal conductor of the Yorkshire Building Society band.  These new instruments are the product of more than 20 years of work and research done between these players and Yamaha R&D expert Thomas Lubitz, and will not disappoint!

This cornet’s one-piece bell provides excellent tonal colors and better response when playing.  The bell is also made thinner on the YCR-8620S model to allow for more resonation in the sound and better projection.  The taper of the pipe leading to the bell has been modified to compliment the sound, increasing the warmth and richness of the tone the player will get out of the horn.  Even the bell braces were redesigned and coupled with a curved leadpipe to optimize resistance and response for the player, making for one of the best playing experiences you will ever experience.

The YCR-8620S is an Eb professional cornet with a ML 0.445” bore, and also features monel valves for improved action, and mother of pearl key buttons for a sharper look.  It has the popular shepherd's crook design, and adjustable mouthpiece receiver as well.

Just play it once, and see what you’ve been missing!  Pick one up today from Sam Ash Direct and get it at the guaranteed lowest price with our Fast, Free Shipping within the continental United States!
