This model adopts a unique 'reverse-style' design with staggered main pipe valve slides, creating a smooth response. A heavy mouthpiece receiver and daring removal of the third valve water key results in a superb balance of playability and tonal quality. With this model, musicians will be able to produce a firm sound in all dynamic ranges, from delicate pianissimo to powerful fortissimo.
The YTR-8335RS achieves smooth resistance and airflow that only a reverse tuning slide design can offer, for easy, comfortable playability and harmonically rich tone.
A new bell design contributes to optimum resistance for a powerful tonal core. The new design also enhances playability in the upper register.
Thinner valvecasing and pistons, as well as the modified angle of the branch tube (knuckle), result in improved response and provide the performer with an ideal blowing resistance.
The button on the 1st slide is to fine-tune the blowing resistance for better control.
The height of the main slide water key gutter has been increased for optimum resistance, and the ends of the water key spring have been curled for improved response.
*Treated with Yamaha's Cryogenic Resonance Restoration
Cryogenic Resonance Restoration reduces residual stress from your instrument allowing it to play more evenly, with quicker response and with enriched resonance. Once it emerges from its deep freeze, your instrument should be in its ultimate performance zone.
This process lessens the residual stresses in an instrument by re-creating a more relaxed alignment of grain structure and reducing the metal's grain spacing, thus allowing the instrument to resonate more freely. This experience creates a better core sound with a more even timbre through all ranges.
How does it work?
Cryogenic Resonance Restoration is a dry process that does not affect the appearance of lacquer or plated finishes. Instruments that are carefully prepped by the customer are placed in a specially designed, computer controlled unsulated chamber where they reach a final temperature in excess of -300 degrees Fahrenheit.
A computer specifically designed for musical instruments controls the entire process, guiding the temperature to optimum levels and then gently returning the instruments to room temperature. The entire process takes approximately 24 hours, yet that single day produces the equivalent of decades of aging and 'playing in'. Upon completion of the process, your instrument should now be in its ideal 'zone'.
