Impressive entry level Eb tenor (alto) horn outfit for beginners
The Eb tenor horn is a crucial member of the brass band and has become increasingly popular with contemporary composers both as a solo instrument and part of orchestras and ensembles. It is also known as an alto horn or simply Eb horn outside the UK. Yamaha’s YAH203 is a high end starter model that is designed for beginners but is perfectly adequate for intermediate horn players thanks to its versatile and characterful tone.
All the horn’s tubing is pressure formed meaning the bore is perfectly round for the entire length making it easy for inexperienced players to control a smooth and consistent tone. It is made entirely from hard yellow brass for maximum projection. The two piece bell is attached to the rest of the instrument using Yamaha’s special Pluzuma laser welding technique that ensures perfectly even vibration at any volume.
Its three top sprung nickel plated piston valves have a smooth action and have been carefully honed to eliminate any air leakage. These valves and the horn’s tuning slides should be lubricated regularly to maintain a good response. Two water keys allow players to empty the tenor horn’s interior to prevent corrosion caused by a build up of unwanted moisture. The horn is coated in a protective gold lacquer.
Each YAH203 tenor horn comes in a protective hard case with moulded interior and shoulder straps. Outfits also include a Yamaha 37C4 beginner mouthpiece and pots of valve oil and slide grease.
