YTR 9 – C Piccolo eg: YTR 3rd Number – Bore Size I think this was probably the intended system when the 4 digit model numbers were developed, but it just seems to dissappear in any organised form as more models have been introduced into the range. There simply isn’t enough appropriate numbers to accomodate all the possible bores in a logical sequence. Also worth noting is the variance of measurements in the same bore sizes.

I’d like to work out if this is a deliberate change of measurement made by Yamaha for speccific models or simply anj case of the original imperial measurements being changed to decimal and back again, each time changing slightly for the previous. Any thoughts or knowledge in this area? The measurements I have are as follows: YTR But this doesn’t have space for the S Small Bore or MS Medium Small bore, nor does it differentiate between same bore sizes, so I’ll list the measurements in order and assume that the number system simply doesn’t hold true anymore, other than maybe the 3 and 4 designation.

YCR If anyone wants to supply me with the correct fractional imperial measurements it would be appreciated. I think that this system worked initially until model models and artists developed and this system simply ceased to work as intended. The addition of letters as described below has been introduced to help over come the limited combinations of numbers only. As far as I can tell there is no specific meaning to each number other than to differentiate one from others. I have realized that this description is not actually correct for the last number.

It basically alternates between a “0” or a “5” with a few exceptions.

Old Lyme, Connecticut Buck with a Bach said: While there went through a pile of instrument cases sitting there. Looked at a cornet that was a King Tempo with a lacquer body and a nickle or silver bell. On top of that was a Getzen bugle with one valve and a rotary valve towards the rear of it. From the extra tubing, it looks like something that might be used to change it from one key to another. This one was in silver or nickle. And, if I was correct in assuming that the rotary was for a key change?

Getzen bugle were either chrome plated or brass lacquered. If it is not used for a few days, it will “dry in”, and will not operate. Band instrument oil may be used, which not only makes a rotary operate more freely, but also keeps it from “drying in” for a greater period of time.
