Yamaha Xeno 8335 Trumpet Review

I have just purchased a new Yamaha Xeno trumpet - something I have been wanting for a very long time.
I LOVE it.
Firstly, it looks the part with contrasting yellow brass and silver.
The valves are very well constructed (no plastic parts like other models!).
It comes with a custom 16c4-GP mouthpiece with gold on the inside.. The case can hold two trumpets and two mouthpieces. It is also lockable and comes with two keys. The only thing I don't like about the case is that there is nowhere specific to put valve oil etc. Yes you can put it in the send trumpet compartment (and this is what I have ended up doing) however it frequently ends up on top of my trumpet when I am carrying the case.
Yamaha also include a polishing cloth, valve oil and a tiny slide grease (a bit stingy for the amount of money I spent!).
Over all this is a beautiful, well constructed instrument with a lovely tone. It is perfect for any experienced player.
I also have an overview of the trumpet on my YouTube channel :
