Description

Yamaha Custom Flugelhorns are an exceptional combination of modern design techniques and old world hand craftsmanship. Classic flugelhorn designs such as vertical valve tubing and a movable mouthpiece receiver for flexible intonation accompany new features such as the ergonomically shaped third valve slide trigger, designed to accommodate a wider range of hand sizes. The newly designed leadpipes provide excellent response and intonation throughout the entire range of the instrument,

Features

Brand new design
The YFH-8315G us a fresh and unique addition to the Yamaha flugelhorn lineup.

New trigger system
The newly designed third valve slide trigger is more ergonomic and will accommodate a wider range of hand sizes.

New leadpipe design
The YFH-8315G features a newly designed leadpipe, outer leadpipe area and a new connection brace between the leadpipe and the valve casing.

Vertical valve tubing
Traditionally, flugelhorns are made with vertical valve tubing.

Monel pistons
Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional flugelhorn pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.

Hand-lapped pistons and slides
Hand-lapping pistons and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the 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.
