Plays in either G or F, making it the ideal trumpet for Baroque performance.
Yamaha high-pitched trumpets feature brilliant tone with crisp clear attacks and excellent control in the high register. Though originally used primarily for Baroque music, they are increasingly used by solo and orchestral players for security with difficult high passages as well as for the clarity and lyrical qualities of their sound. The 9710 features two bells and sets of slides to convert it to either G or F, and offers the sound and playability of a 'big' trumpet, with the security and control of a piccolo trumpet. The intonation is surprisingly accurate, and the tone flexible enough to use in many different styles of music.
