Product Details
Level: Standard

The YTR-200AD trumpet is an entry level instrument.

Key: Bb
The standard Bb trumpet is a transposing instrument. A transposing instrument is one whose music is not read or played at concert pitch. The Bb trumpet sounds one whole step lower than written; therefore, Bb trumpet parts are written to accommodate.

Bore: ML: .459”
The YTR-200ADII has a medium-large (ML) bore, measuring .459 inches. Bore size refers to the diameter of the trumpet’s tubing, measured by calculating the diameter of the inside of the 2nd valve slide. ML is an appropriate size for entry level players. Student players should not learn to play on a trumpet with a large bore, as they will have a tendency to overblow and experience difficulty in producing a clean sound at a low volume. Volume control is a difficult concept for many beginners, but a medium to medium-large sized bore will help rather than hinder the student player. For professional trumpet players, bore size becomes more a matter of personal preference – a larger bore generally gives a more open feel, but at the same time may provide less control, and therefore such variances are really dependent on the strengths, weaknesses, and stylistic preferences of the player.

Bell: 4 7/8” Diameter; yellow brass, pluzuma welded
The YTR-200ADII has a standard-sized, lightweight bell, ideal for entry level players. A high-energy laser utilizes pluzuma welding to fuse the yellow brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations. Like virtually all standard level trumpets, the YTR-200ADII has a two-piece bell, but the precise welding technique makes it impossible to visually detect two distinct pieces. Logically, the bell of the trumpet is a vital part of the instrument’s construction, and the materials used to finish the bell impact the resulting sound that the trumpet produces.

Body and Leadpipe Material: Yellow brass body; gold brass leadpipe; gold epoxy lacquer; nickel silver stress points
Brass is known for its beauty, resilience, and durability, making it one of the most common base materials for many musical instruments. Lacquer protects and preserves the appearance of the yellow and gold brass metals. The leadpipe (the tube from the mouthpiece to the tuning slide) is an integral part of the trumpet’s anatomy, and greatly impacts the instrument’s playability, resistance, and sound quality. The YTR-200ADII’s perfectly rounded pressure-formed tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance. Nickel silver is a very strong material, and when used at stress points, makes the instrument far more durable.

Weight: Medium
Medium weight is ideal for entry level trumpets, although many cheaply-made brands will produce lightweight trumpets that are far less durable and create a less rich and vibrant tone. Yamaha’s intermediate series of trumpets are also of a medium weight. For young entry level players, a medium weight trumpet like the YTR-200ADII provides a stable and solid feel while still allowing for comfort of use.

Key Buttons: Plastic
The key buttons are atop the trumpet’s valves to provide comfort and also to add to the appearance of the instrument. The key buttons on the YTR-200ADII are a durable plastic, which is the most common material for standard trumpets. More advanced (and expensive) trumpets, like Yamaha’s professional models, will use real mother of pearl for the key button material.

Pistons/Valves: Monel alloy
As mentioned earlier, the valves have been updated in the YTR-200ADII trumpet, moving from the old nickel-plated style to the monel alloy. Monel alloy is highly durable and resistant to corrosion, and Yamaha’s shift to using monel alloy for their standard trumpet offering is based on the success of their more advanced model’s design specifications. The precise fit between valve casings and pistons after honing means no air leakage. The YTR-200ADII’s Delrin one-piece valve guides provide longer lasting and quieter valve action than metal valve guides. 
[Back to top]

Mouthpiece: TR-11B4
The YTR-200ADII comes with Yamaha’s TR-11B4 trumpet mouthpiece, which has a somewhat shallow cup and medium rim for extra endurance. This is an excellent size for entry level players and beyond, and results in a brilliant tone. Many mouthpiece options are available for the trumpet, and as players advance, they may opt for a different mouthpiece model based on personal preferences and individual strengths and weaknesses.

What is the “Advantage Series” of Yamaha band instruments?

Many wonder what the differences are between Yamaha’s 'Standard' and 'Advantage' series of instruments. Believe it or not, the instruments are mechanically identical to one another. Other than the model number, the engraving, and the included carrying case, they are the same.

For each 'Standard' model, Yamaha also has an 'Advantage' counterpart. For example, Yamaha offers a 'Standard' flute (YFL-221) and also an 'Advantage' version (Model YFL-200AD). The same can be seen with Yamaha's 'Standard' clarinet (YCL-255) and their 'Advantage' clarinet (YCL-200ADII). For saxophones, Yamaha manufacturers their 'Standard' alto sax (YAS-26) and also an 'Advantage' model (YAS-200ADII). There is a 'Standard' trumpet (YTR-2330) and an 'Advantage' model (YTR-200ADII). These are just some 'Advantage' models offered by Yamaha, for a complete list or if you would like to more information, please feel free to contact us at 877-884-9766.

What is the difference? Why are both available? What’s the ‘right’ choice?

To begin, you cannot buy a brand new Yamaha 'Advantage' instrument on the Internet. If you see one advertised online, it is likely being sold by an unauthorized dealer (voiding the manufacturer’s warranty).

The 'Advantage' series is designed for high-end, music store rental fleets. This explains the premium hard-shell carrying case that they come in. Built to endure the everyday rigors of 'life as a rental', these cases are much more durable than their 'Standard' series counterparts.

However, because the 'Advantage' line is newer to the instrument market than the 'Standard' series, they will sometimes remain absent from music educator’s recommendation lists.

At the end of the day, the instruments are identical and it really does not matter which 'Series' you decide to purchase. And because both are Yamaha, you can be certain you are purchasing one of the best musical instruments available today.
