Owners Manual

Precautions Please read before using

Do not throw or swing the instrument when others are close by. The mouthpiece or other parts may fall off hitting other people. Always treat the instrument gently.

Keep the oil, polish, etc., out of childrens mouths. Keep the oil, polish, etc., out of childrens reach and do maintenance when children are not present.

Be aware of climatic conditions such as tempera- ture, humidity, etc. Keep the instrument away from heat sources such as heaters, etc. Also, do not use or store the instrument in any extreme conditions of temperature or humidity. Do- ing so may result in damage to key balance, linkage, or pads, resulting in problems during performance.

Never use benzene or thinner for maintenance on instruments with a lacquer finish. Doing so may result in damage to the finishs top coat.

Take care not to disfigure the instrument. Placing the instrument where it is unstable may cause the instrument to fall or drop resulting in disfigurement. Take care as to where and how you place the instru- ment.

Do not modify the instrument. Besides voiding the warranty, modification of the instru- ment may make repairs impossible.

Keep small parts out of the reach of infants. Your children may accidentally swallow them.

The precautions given below concern the proper and safe use of the instrument, and are to pro- tect you and others from any damage or injuries. Please follow and obey these precautions. If children are using the instrument, a guardian should clearly explain these precautions to the child and make sure they are fully understood and obeyed. After reading this manual, please keep it in a safe place for future reference.

About the Icons

: This icon indicates points which should be paid attention to. : This icon indicates actions that are prohibited.

Caution Disobeying the points indicated with this mark may lead to damage or injury.

In regards to brass instruments with a plate finish, the color of the finish may change over time however, it should be of no concern in regards to the instruments performance. Discoloration in its early stage can easily be removed with maintenance. (As discoloration progresses, it may be difficult to remove.)

* Please use the accessories that are specified for use with the particular type of finish found on the instrument. Also, metal polishes remove a thin layer of the finishs top coat which will make the finish thinner. Please be aware of this before using polish.

Some instruments are shipped with a black cap attached to the end of the 3rd valve slide ring (A in the diagram) to prevent the ring from be- ing lost during shipping. The cap can be removed before you start playing, but leaving it in place will not affect the operation of the instrument.

Handling the Instrument As the trumpet is made of thin metal, handle the instrument carefully. Do not apply any excessive force, or bump the instrument so as to dent or damage it.

Applying Oil

Apply oil to the pistons

1. Unscrew the valve cap and pull the piston straight out of the valve casing until about half of the valve piston is exposed.

2. Apply a few drops of valve oil on the piston.

* Do not apply too much oil.

3. Slowly, return the piston into the valve casing. At this time, make sure the number stamped on the piston is facing the mouthpiece. After the valve cap is tightened firmly, move the pis- ton up and down a few times to distribute the oil over the piston evenly.

Piston

Valve oil

* If all pistons have been removed from the valve casings, make sure the number stamped on the piston matches the number stamped on the casing before returning the piston into the valve casing.

* The pistons must be oiled for them to function properly and smoothly.

Number

Applying Oil To The Rotors (Rotary Trumpets Only)

1. Hold the lever down and remove the valve slide.

* If the valve slide is removed without holding the lever down, air pressure in the pipe drops creating a suction that can cause poor rotor function or damage to the inside of the pipe.

2. Apply some rotor oil to the rotor and then move the lever a few times to distribute the oil evenly.

* To keep oil from mixing with the slide grease or dirt inside of the pipe, hold the oil containers spout so that is does not come into contact with the inner walls of the pipe.

* Since the oil containers spout is metallic, be care- ful not to let the spout come into direct contact with the rotor.

3. Hold the lever down and replace the valve slide.

* If you replace the valve slide without holding the lever down, pressure built up inside the pipe can cause poor rotor function or damage to the inside of the pipe.

About the slide stopper Some instruments are supplied with a

silicon Yamaha Slide Stopper to prevent ac- cidental removal of the tuning slides. The stopper can be left in place when playing and used in other configurations as shown below.

* Make sure that the ring is hooked on securely to prevent it from coming unhooked.

* Wash with water when necessary.

* Do not expose the product to any heat source, high temperature, or direct sunlight.

* Keep out of reach of young children.

* In rare instances, oil may seep from the silicon rubber. This has no affect on product quality or the instrument.

When shipped

Example-1

Example-2

* If you remove or replace the valve slide without holding the piston down, the drop or buildup of air pressure in the pipe can cause poor piston function or damage to the inside of the pipe.

* The pistons must be oiled for them to function properly and smoothly.

After applying slide oil to valve slides equipped with a spring type slide trigger, hold the piston down and move the slide in and out a few times as you did before to distribute the oil evenly.

CAUTION Preventing The 3rd Valve Slide From Falling Off.

On instruments fitted with a stopper screw, make sure the screw is tight.

Before You Play

Applying Oil To The Valve Slides

1. Depress the piston that corresponds to the slide that you want to apply oil and partially remove the slide. Apply a few drops of tuning slide oil.

Tuning slide oil

* Do not apply too much oil.

2. Hold the piston down and move the slide in and out a few times.

Always store the instrument in its case when taking a break, during transport, and after playing.

About the mouthpiece The mouthpiece that is supplied with your

instrument is a standard mouthpiece for the instrument. The mouthpiece is designed to fit into the mouthpiece receiver without being loose. Do not treat the mouthpiece roughly, drop, or damage it.

21

Maintenance After playing After playing, make sure that moisture or dirt is removed from the instrument using the method described below.

Valve slide maintenance

1. Depress the piston that corresponds to the valve slide you want to clean, and remove the slide.

* If you remove the valve slide without holding the piston down, air pressure in the pipe drops creat- ing a suction that can cause poor piston function or damage to the inside of the pipe.

* If the instrument is equipped with a slide stopper screw, loosen the screw before removing the slide.

2. Remove moisture from the slide. Also, remove moisture from the water key.

3rd valve slide 3rd valve slide stopper screw

Main tuning slide

Water key

* Valve slides are made of brass or nickel silver that is excellent at resisting corrosion however, corrosion may appear if moisture is left in the instrument for an extended period of time. Please use caution.

Other maintenance

Apply some valve oil to the pistons and move the piston up and down a few times, the same as you do before playing the instrument. Likewise, apply some rotor oil to the rotors on rotary trumpets and move the levers a few times.

Valve oil

* Do not apply too much oil.

Body maintenance

Gently wipe the surface of the instrument with a polishing cloth. If dirt or tarnish is obvious, the following products can be used.

For lacquer finishes Polishing cloth + lacquer polish For silver plate Silver cloth + silver polish

For a beautiful shine, polish the instrument with a silicone cloth.

Please consult with a wind instrument technician in regard to disassembling and mainte- nance the spring trigger.

22

Maintenance

Once a week maintenance Piston and valve casing maintenance

The trumpets valves are designed with very little clearance between the piston and the casing there- fore, it is very important that these precision parts be handled with care.

1. Wrap the cleaning rod with gauze leaving no bare metal exposed.

Cleaning rod

* Exposed metal can result in damaged valve casings or pistons.

2. Remove dirt from the inside of the valve cas- ings.

Gauze

3. Remove dirt from the pistons.

4. Return the piston to its corresponding valve casing.

After confirming that the number stamped on the piston matches the number stamped on the valve casing, carefully insert the piston straight into the valve casing with the number stamped on the piston facing the mouthpiece. Do not rotate the piston in the valve casing.

Number

5. Apply valve oil to the piston.

Valve oil

* Do not apply too much oil. * If air does not pass through the instrument when

the piston is fully depressed, the piston may be placed in the wrong valve casing. Make sure that the numbers stamped on the piston and valve casing match.

The piston is the most important part of the trumpet.

Never treat the pistons roughly, drop the piston, or let the piston fall, etc. If the piston becomes damaged or dented, never return it to the valve casing. Con- tact the dealer from whom you purchased the instrument.

23

Maintenance

Rotor maintenance (Rotary trumpets only)

1. Remove the rotary valve cap and apply some rotor spindle oil to the place to the spindle in the center of the rotor.

Rotor spindle oil

2. Apply some rotor spindle oil to point where the rotor rotates. Replace the rotary valve cap and move the lever a few times to distribute the oil evenly.
