Yamaha YBH-831 Neo Baritone – Yellow Brass Lacquer

Yamaha's new professional level Bb Neo Baritone, this instrument is ideal for advanced musicians performing in brass bands or larger ensembles.

The YBH-831 is delivered to you as a complete professional outfit. Included with the Neo Baritone is hard moulded case custom built carry case, featuring a shoulder strap to help make transporting your instrument more convenient for you.

We think:

Bucking the trend of previous generation Yamaha Baritones, the YBH-831 immediately heads right to the forefront of the Brass market.

Completing the Neo Range, this is the first Yamaha Baritone to feature a 3-valve compensating system. The revamped new design is built around ensuring clear and natural resonance, whilst offering enhanced playing comfort.

Finally we can say with complete confidence that Yamaha have delivered a quality professional Bb Baritone, which continues the trend of ground breaking instruments all grouped into the one series. Built with a plethora of innovative features it highlights Yamaha’s aim; to bring the best technology to traditional brass bands.

Full Compensating System

Yamaha have completely renovated the compensating system on a Baritone with the new Neo YBH-831. The 3-valve compensating system is what you would expect on a top-spec baritone, and here this system is built to give you better airflow to produce accurate intonation. By allowing breath to flow through the bypass tubes of valves that are pressed simultaneously with the third valve, pitch accuracy in the mid to low range is distinctly improved.

Now with the Neo Baritone no longer have to consider how you play, instead focus on your music with an instrument that gives you more freedom than it’s competitors.

New Design – Revolutionary Sound

The original main tube taper and large bell of the baritone add clarity and projection to the deep timbre; thus ensuring that even in larger bands your sound will blend without being lost adding a strong disposition to your music. The leadpipe is not soldered to the bell – you have an instrument that is one piece, offering a full and natural sound to create supreme expression. Slim valve casings and a hand rest mounted parallel to the valves contribute to a natural, stress-free hand position, while lightweight pistons make the action quick and agile.

Not only is the sound revolutionary on YBH-831, the playing position has been dramatically improved to add enhanced comfort.
