Part of the new line of “Neo” brass instruments, the YEP-642II is equally at home in solo or ensemble settings and allows for the most subtly nuanced dynamics and tonal inflections. The YEP-642II is available in lacquer or silver-plated (YEP-642SII) finishes.Features:
- Developed with Top Artists - The development of the "Neo" line of brass band instruments utilizes some of the top talent in the world. The new YEP-642II was designed with input from renowned euphonium teacher Bill Millar and acclaimed soloist Steven Walsh.
- Compensating System - The compensating system found on the YEP-642 ensures accurate tuning on all notes throughout the instrument's range, particularly in the difficult low range.
- 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.
- 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.
- Multiple Finish Options - The YEP-642II euphonium is available with a Clear Lacquer finish (YEP-642II).
