Yamaha YEP-842S 4-Valve Bb Euphonium
Developed with some of the world’s finest Euphonium soloists, the the Yamaha YEP-842S 4-Valve Bb Euphonium is the ultimate solo instrument for the euphonium virtuoso. YEP-842S Custom Euphonium boasts a radical new design that combines all the majesty of the past with the wonders of modern technology. It has won instant acceptance by every player fortunate enough to have tried it, including some of the world’s greatest masters. This is an instrument that has begun to redefine the very meaning of the word “Euphonium.” It’s the start of a new tradition.
Improved response compared to the YEP-642.
The improved longer bow guards feature an enclosed wire for aided protection.
New design for holding tube
Promotes easier hand position for holding the instrument.
First valve tuning slide
A shorter 1st valve tuning slide makes for better overall intonation.
Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional baritone pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
Hand-lapped valves and slides
Hand-lapping valves and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the valve pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
The compensating system found on the YEP-842S ensures accurate tuning on all notes throughout the instrument’s range, particularly in the difficult low range.
Bell taper and leadpipe design
The combination of the bell taper and the ‘open’ leadpipe is designed for greater projection, control and response.
True and centred intonation makes this great euphonium even better!
