What Customers are Saying

The Yamaha trumpet YTR 2335 is an excellent student model that is highly praised for its abilities, but some buyers will find areas where they believe it could use improvement like any other model. Overall, buyers see it as a good trumpet with which to start playing.


  • Perfect for Beginners. A good student horn perfect for beginners. One of the best student models out there. Relatively small targets on each note, but it does sound good in all registers, good for all styles. Nice valve action and good response. Definitely not a pro horn but a good starter.
  • Recommended. …This trumpet plays almost as well as professional models. It has a very bright sound, is free blowing, and maintains good tone quality in both the upper and lower registers. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this model to any skill level of trumpet player.
  • Versatile. It’s very versatile, I’ve used it for choral solos, marching band, symphonic bands, concert bands, jazz bands…
  • Student Trumpet of Choice. I work for the band and orchestra division of a national music retailer and this is our student model of choice as well as that of most music directors in the area.


  • Every student trumpet has its flaws, and the disadvantage with the Yamaha YTR 2335 comes from the size of its bore relative to that of the young player. Many students may have difficulty in the upper register due to the trumpet’s large bore. This Yamaha student trumpet may require younger players to work much harder to reach high notes when playing. This can become a benefit in the long run by strengthening the player’s embouchure.

Decision Time

The Yamaha YTR 2335 is no longer in production, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be purchased for the ambitious beginner. You can still purchase new YTR 2335 models that are still in stock as well as used Yamaha trumpets from advancing players.

This trumpet comes highly recommended by student players due to its value, durability and ease of use. It can be used in a variety of settings in which young trumpeters would find themselves playing.

Ultimately, the decision lies with the player. This means he or she has to find this trumpet to meet their own playing applications or style better than other models in the beginner class.
