The Yamaha YTR-8340EM (Eric Miyashiro) is part of Yamaha's Custom range. Yamaha collaborates with leading artists around the world, incorporating their ideas or experiences to create instruments that enable musical expression at higher levels.
The YTR-8340EM trumpet was developed in collaboration with Eric Miyashiro and draws out the emotional resonance of the performer. With it's triple ring finger hook, large bell with French bead, side seam finish,and customised mouthpiece and semi-hard double backpack case, this instrument showcases Yamaha's attention to detail.
Eric Miyashiro made his debut as a professional musician at age 14 as the lead trumpet player of the Sammy Davis, Jr. band. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, he toured with the most prestigious names in the business, including Woody Herman, Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme and Tony Bennett. Currently a resident of Japan, Miyashiro works as a top studio musician, clinician and leader of his own band, the EM Big Band.
Multi-bore - When the piston is not depressed, the trumpet has the same bore structure as a Bb trumpet as M bore size. However, when the piston is depressed, the unique "multi-bore" structure reduces the difference in back pressure by passing through the L bore valve slide.
French Bead - Unlike traditional methods where a round rim is used in curling, French bead is an extremely advanced technique that matched the curling to the shape of a semi-cylindrical rim and is characterised by improved feedback of sound to the performer.
Side Seam - Side seaming is the process of placing the connection point on the lateral valve casing side in contrast to the conventional method placing the connection point on the lower side of the bell. Side seam trumpets are characterised by a more open vibration.
