Full sized euphonium outfit for beginners and young students
Please select instrument options
The YEP201 Bb euphonium is an exceptional instrument for its price and is designed to suit beginners and younger students. Like all Yamaha instruments, each component and manufacturing process has been carefully researched and refined over many decades to provide a euphonium with high standards of performance and reliability.
It is a non-compensating instrument which means that pitches are limited in the pedal register, and intonation is inaccurate at the extremes of its range, but this is unlikely to affect players until they have completed the first few grade exams. The removal of all the extra tubing a compensating euphonium would require also makes the YEP201 much lighter and more comfortable for smaller hands to hold.
All of the euphonium’s tubing, including the valve extensions and tuning slides, is made from hard yellow brass and finished with a choice of gold lacquer or silver plate. The three top sprung nickel plated valves have been honed to further enhance the consistent airflow. This process precisely matches the pistons to their casing to make them absolutely airtight.
The bore starts with a diameter of 0.571” (14.5mm) and is pressure formed to ensure a perfectly round interior along the whole length. An 11” (280mm) bell is welded on using Yamaha’s ingenious pluzuma laser fusion method. These techniques create extremely smooth airflow and even vibration making it much easier to produce a consistent mellifluous one – essential for encouraging young students to practice.
Each outfit includes a hard plastic carry case with a moulded interior, an SL48 medium large mouthpiece, and a pot of superior valve oil to keep all the moving parts running smoothly.
