The New Standard in Brass Band Instruments
The Yamaha YEP-642SII Neo Professional Euphonium is one of Yamaha's finest euphoniums. Every part of the instrument has been re-evaluated and redesigned by Yoshihiko Matsukuma - one of Yamaha's leading tuba and euphonium designers. By working alongside numerous competitive brass bands throughout the UK and consulting with professional players, Yamaha has created a euphonium that offers a broader, softer sound, whilst being even more comfortable to play.
Bb Euphonium in a Silver-Plated Finish
Design innovations include an overhaul of the main tubing shape, balancing playing resistance and maintaining a powerful tone throughout the range of the instrument. A redesigned hand-rest and ergonomic improvements to the valve positionings ensure that this is a euphonium that is comfortable to play for long sittings. The YEP-642SII is finished with stunning silver-plating, adding subtle nuances to the tone, and giving a distinguished aesthetic.
Developed with Top Artists
The development of the "Neo" line of brass band instruments utilizes some of the top talent in the world. The new YEP-642II was designed with input from renowned euphonium teacher Bill Millar and acclaimed soloist Steven Walsh.
The compensating system found on the YEP-642 ensures accurate tuning on all notes throughout the instrument's range, particularly in the difficult low range.
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.
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.
