However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Eric Miyashiro

Eric Miyashiro has become a highly regarded musician for modern jazz. Having studied at Berklee, Miyashiro worked as a freelance studio musician, before becoming the frontman for a variety of touring bands, as well as a supporting musician for artists such as Frank Sinatra. In the 2000s Miyashiro released multiple albums, which each display his devotion to jazz. Having arranged various film and television scores, as well as countless musical pieces, Miyashiro displays versatile and emotive performances. The signature Yamaha model is ideal for fans of Eric Miyashiro, or musicians who want their own voicing to shine through.

New Features

The YTR-8340 model of trumpet has a range of new features to benefit the musician. The multi-bore system reduces back pressure with a large bore valve slide to bypass when the piston isn’t depressed. The French bead rim is an advanced shape that aligns with the curling for improved feedback. The side valve casting is non-conventional compared to it typically being on the underside. This results in a more open vibration. These custom features have been designed with Miyashiro to produce an overall tone and playability that suits his style of musicianship. The YTR-8340 proves itself as a forward thinking instrument.

Everything You Need

The Yamaha YTR-8340 trumpet comes with a dedicated carry case and mouthpiece. The instrument is stored securely inside the case and avoids knocks and scratches keeping it looking, feeling and performing like new for longer. The case’s felt interior retains the polish quality even when on the move. The EM1 mouthpiece has a comfortable feel and smooth playability, so you are assured to get the best out of your trumpet.
