Alto and Bass Flutes refined
The acclaimed models YFL-A421 and YFL-B441 have been refined. Both models feature an improved headjoint for clearer response, resonance and richer tone. Besides that the bass flute facilitates an increased volume especially in the low range. The adjustment system adopted from our professional flutes ensures improved stability of key adjustment.
New V1 Neck
for Alto Saxophone YAS-875EX
With the V1 neck Yamaha offers a new alternative to the G1 neck. It facilitates the response and intonation of the higher register, especially high-F and -F#. While the playability is close to the G1 it yet accepts more air resulting in a wider and rounder sound. The V1 neck is available in gold lacquer, silver-plated and gold-plated.
The new Yamaha Neo Horn
The new model YAH-803S has been developed with Sheona White who is also well known as „The voice of the Tenor Horn“. Her partnership with Yamaha has resulted in a radical re-think of horn design. Every facet of the instrument has been considered, revised and refined to perfection. And you’ll hear the difference. New levels of power and projection combine with a warmth and depth that will send repercussions through the brass community and bring horn players to their rightful place at the heart of the band.
Available: August / September

In consultation with world class artists we designed a new generation of Flugelhorns in our R&D facilities with out- standing results: The new YFH-8310Z and YFH-8315G expand the classical sound spectrum of the established Yamaha YFH-631G. Both models have their own style for different types of players and offer individual ways of expression. Be inspired!
