A cornet of excellence, designed and developed without compromise
This new Neo cornet with its heavy wall, gold brass bell and gold-brass leadpipe produces a dark, rich tone.
The Neo cornet range provides a greater breadth of tone and expressive emotion in an enriched sound world. The use of gold brass for the lead-pipe, connection tube and main tuning slide give these new cornets a rich, flexible sound and excellent response in the higher register. The famed Yamaha YCR8335 Neo cornet in silver plate has been redesigned to achieve an unmatched tonal quality. By understanding the needs of musicians, Yamaha have been able to make a dynamic cornet for those who are part of professional brass bands.
When designing the YCR8335 cornet, Yamaha called on the help of Russell Gray, David King, and Phillip McCann - so you know it's going to be good. By working together and making subtle upgrades, Yamaha has been able to produce a cornet which can convey every nuance of your style.
Still to this day, all Yamaha Neo cornets are meticulously handcrafted in Japan to ensure the highest quality of craftsmanship. Included with the YCR8335 Neo is a deluxe case and CR16E mouthpiece so you can get started straight away.
