OVERVIEW

the best euphonium a student or budget-minded player could hope for.

The yamaha YEP-201 euphonium is an excellent option for younger players, or when budget is a strong consideration. It is lighter weight than more advanced models making it easier to hold and play, but still features a big full sound, and easy response.

It is characterized by a precise fit between valve casings and pistons, which means no air leakage, and a fuller sound. Like Yamaha's finest brass instruments, the YEP-201's perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance. A laser-fused pluzuma welded bell's brass is fused together for a virtually seamless bell, which allows continuous even vibrations. The excellent intonation of the YEP-201 helps to foster a feel for correct pitch in beginning players. That is a distant concern for some manufacturers, but Yamaha says, "Why wait?"

The responsiveness of the YEP-201 assists beginning players in learning the phrasing of the euphonium, a critical component of elegant playing. Light weight, great sound, eminent reliability, the Yamaha YEP-201 has everything a student needs in a beginning euphonium.

Great Beginner Horn!!

Comments about Yamaha YEP-201 Series 3-Valve Euphonium:

I started out on one of these horns and it is a great horn for kids to start out on. it has a clear sound and the valves are very smooth. This horn Shouldn't last a student for more than a year or so. After that I recommend moving up to the 321S.

It's a euphonium, but does it sound like one?

Comments about Yamaha YEP-201 Series 3-Valve Euphonium:

I switched from trumpet because my school's euphonium section was falling apart. Honestly, it sounds more like a baritone than anything else. As usual, the Yamaha mouthpiece isn't of great quality, I used a Schilke 47. Overall, a nice starter instrument, but moving up to a 321 rather quickly is a good idea.
