This is a rare factory custom Yamaha YTR-9830 "Long Model" Bb Piccolo Trumpet in gold plate! We cannot be certain if this is a real design, but by how Most of the solder joints are untouched (very easy to see with gold plating) as well as the "Yamaha Custom" engraving is on the left side of the leadpipe, than the right side on a standard YTR-9830. We also assume the bell was damaged at one point (most probably due to the longer stance), hence the repairs and plating loss around the bell crook. There is an additional brace on the right side of the valve casing to place the thumb for better ergonomics. The piccolo plays very well in tune and with the longer design and the blow is less restrictive than the standard long bell wrap. If you want a superb playing Gold Plated piccolo trumpet without breaking the bank - here it is! It comes with 2 extra leadpipes in silver (Bb and A)!
