Manufacturer’s Comments: 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.

Features

Thin bell

Improved response compared to the YEP-642.

Bow guards

The improved longer bow gaurds 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

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.

Pressure-formed tubing

Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.

Compensating system

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.

Intonation

True and centered intonation makes this great euphonium even better!
