The Yamaha YBH831 Neo baritone horn has been overhauled by Yamaha to produce accurate intonation. Featuring a standard 3 valve compensating tubing system that is found on top end baritones, this system has been improved upon to create a better airflow. By allowing air to flow through the bypass tubes of valve pressed in conjunction with the 3rd valve, intonation in the mid-lower register has been improved dramatically. Rather than battling the instrument to play musically and accurately, the Neo baritone allows you more freedom, allowing you to concentrate on music making.
The large bell with a narrower taper means that the instruments clarity of tone is definite and powerful. This means that even in larger ensembles or brass bands, the sound of the baritone will blend without being lost, thus adding a characterful tone to the ensemble. The large bell compliments this well with a bigger overall sound. The leadpipe has been redesigned so not to be soldered to the bell. This increases resonance. The shape of the leadpipe also offers the correct amount of resistance to allow for great expression, clarity and volume.
