Yamaha Compensating Euphoniums permit the most subtle nuances of dynamics and tonal inflection. The compensating system ensures the player superior control over intonation. The hand-hammered yellow-brass bell features an advanced taper design for maximum projection and dark tonal color. The non-corrosive, gold-brass leadpipe also has a taper design that allows greater control and response. All slide tubing is nickel-silver for improved tone and is corrosion resistant.

Thin bell
Improved response compared to the YEP-642.

Bow guards
The improved longer bow gaurds feature an enclosed wire for aided protection.

New design for holding tube
Promotes easier hand position for holding the instrument.

First valve tuning slide
A shorter 1st valve tuning slide makes for better overall intonation.

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.

Hand-lapped valves and slides
Hand-lapping valves and slides ensure 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.

Pressure-formed tubing
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.

Compensating system
The compensating system found on the YEP-842S ensures accurate tuning on all notes throughout the instrument's range, particularly in the difficult low range.

Bell taper and leadpipe design
The combination of the bell taper and the 'open' leadpipe is designed for greater projection, control and response.

True and centered intonation makes this great euphonium even better!
