This is one of Yamaha's premier flugelhorns, and is endorsed by trumpet great Wayne Bergeron. It has a traditional .413" (10.5mm) bore and a gold brass bell.
The YFH-8315G us a fresh and unique addition to the Yamaha flugelhorn lineup.
The newly designed third valve slide trigger is more ergonomic and will accommodate a wider range of hand sizes.
The YFH-8315G features a newly designed leadpipe, outer leadpipe area and a new connection brace between the leadpipe and the valve casing.
Traditionally, flugelhorns are made with vertical valve tubing.
Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional flugelhorn pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
Hand-lapping pistons and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the 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.
The YFH-8315G flugelhorn is available in a silver-plated finish (YFH-8315GS).
