Yamaha Silent Brass review (Yamaha - Silent Brass SB7X)

By SpiralShaper, 03/06/2015
I bought the Trumpet Silent Brass system in 2003-4. This may not be the same model as the SB7X. The Silent Brass system provides a mute on the projecting qualities of the trumpet. As a practice tool, the Silent Brass is nifty for late practice sessions, apartment dwellers, and last minute hotel preparation.

I only have used my Silent Brass system a few times. The amplifier/headphone setup is pretty cool if you're into that. I used it during late hour practice at our condo, usually just for chop exercises. The model I owned was somewhat "dense" and despite claiming a natural feel, often still felt like the backpressure of a mute.

I give the Silent Brass system 3/5 for personal experience. It's useful if you have the need, not extremely so without. If the SB7X has done away with the tight airflow problem, it earns an automatic 4th star for ingenuity.

Serious trumpet (Yamaha - YTR-4335G)

By olioli123, 16/06/2014
I bought new, have kept 2 years and have sold as new.
I played almost every day.
Super trumpet that makes you want to move and already sounds like a pro, with a stamp already present.
Very fair (except always do # ...)
Light
Reliable as the Yamaha Japanese (though made in China ...)
No particular problem if not the pistons that block if you do not use it in normal ... Yam as the rooms are very tight.
I went on a pro Yam occas but 3x the price.
I remake all the same again.

Discovering the shrill! (CarolBrass - CTR-5000L-YST-Bb-L)

By efabric, 05/06/2014
I use it for less than a week. I took the group Jazz Flugel / Funk there three months, and I played 25 years in harmony with, in order: cornet, trumpet, euphonium, tuba and Lower SiB. I have recently been compared with a trumpet Bach 90s and a less expensive new Yamaha. The CarolBrass seems a little easier to play than the Bach, but does not have exactly the same sound. Mine sound a little less rich perhaps. The presence of two tuning slides is significant and allows it to compensate a little flaw: The slide in "D" is richer is a little more resistant to air the circular slide, which seems a little easier acute . Above all, Bach had much resistance to air my bugle, while there was very little difference between the CarolBrass and Bugle.
Yamaha is far behind, I prefer not to dwell.
This trumpet is much easier to play than my old bugle Courtois, and finally allows me to reach the high / high register (I discovered the bi against ut without the control).

I still noticed a small puncture on the polish flag, but nothing major.

The price is excellent for an instrument of this quality.
