The new Yamaha Neo YEP-642S II is a professional level euphonium and has been developed in conjunction with Bill Millar & Steven Walsh and has unrivalled depth and tone and accuracy of tuning throughout the whole range of the instrument. Part of the new line of “Neo” brass instruments, the YEP-642SII is equally at home in solo or ensemble settings and allows for the most subtly nuanced dynamics and tonal inflections.
The development of the "Neo" line of brass band instruments utilizes some of the top talent in the world. The new YEP-642SII was designed with input from renowned euphonium teacher Bill Millar and acclaimed soloist Steven Walsh.
- The compensating system found on the YEP-642S ensures accurate tuning on all notes throughout the instrument's range, particularly in the difficult low range
- 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
The Yamaha Neo YEP-642S II euphonium is supplied with a Yamaha cleaning kit that includes valve oil, tuning slide grease and a cleaning/polishing cloth. It also comes with a Yamaha 51 mouthpiece and a hard case.
