The Yamaha YAH-803 Neo Tenor (Alto) Horn is suitable for any professional level player.
The Yamaha YAH-803 Neo Tenor (Alto) Horn is suitable for any professional level player. 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.
The new YAH-803 features:
- Two-piece yellow brass bell. With a diameter 5mm larger than that of the YAH-602, the new horn's dynamic range is increased noticeably
- The first branch features a new design that offers improved pitch and greater tone colour
- The main tuning slide is designed with a new taper and wider bow that produces greater tone colour, a freer feel, more accurate pitch, and greater dynamic range
- The valve casing benefits from a new, heavier design. The sound becomes more rich and powerful from the additional weight
- The mouthpiece receiver and brace design produces a moderate amount of resistance and thicker sound when playing, delivering greater projection and expressiveness
The YAH-803 Neo Tenor Horn is supplied with a quality hard case, as well as a maintenance pack containing valve oil, tuning slide grease and a cleaning/polishing cloth.
