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.
The 842S features a completely new leadpipe design for immediate and comfortable response.
The bottom bow has a longer, wider bow guard for a broader dynamic range and improved tonal projection.
The shape and positioning of the hand rest gives players a comfortable playing position, while Yamaha's unique moisture trap captures any condensation or oil which leaves the bottom valve cap.
