Over her 15-year career, Sheona White has probably done more to popularise the Tenor Horn than any other exponent. Now, the BBC Radio 2 Young Musician of the Year 1996 has her sights set on a potentially longer-lasting legacy. Her partnership with Yamaha has resulted in a radical re-think of horn design. 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.

Bell - The new YAH-803S features a one-piece yellow brass bell. With a diameter 5mm larger than that of the YAH-602, the new horn's dynamic range is increased noticeably.

First Branch - The first branch has features a newly designed taper improving tone and pitch.

Valve Casing - The YAH-803S's valve casing benefits from a new, heavier design. The sound becomes more rich and powerful from this additional weight.

Tuning Slide - Additional improvements to sound, pitch, dynamic range and playability have been achieved with the development of a wider, newly tapered tuning slide.

  • Outstanding professional instrument.

This instrument is the pinnacle of alto horns in my experience. The tone is pristine and has lots of colour without being too bright. The intonation is spot-on, as is the fit and finish (typical of Yamaha). This instrument is a serious piece of equipment, and delivers outstanding quality and precision.
