I have owned a YEP321S for 31 years.Many of the early purchasers of this euphonium had problems with valve plating. I have used nothing but Holton valve oil and never had a problem. After playing this instrument for several years I had the larger lead pipe and receiver from a YEP641 installed. Using a large shank 51D mouthpiece I found that it really opened up the upper register.
I play this instrument a lot and it has proven to be very durable. I have had it replated once and the case wore out. So far this year I have performed in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania and as usual have had no problems.
I've owned two YEP-321S euphoniums since 1994 or so--the first one had some defects and was replaced under warranty, but the replacement instrument Yamaha sent is simply outstanding and I consider it irreplaceable. I have played the YEP-321S through college and in many community bands through the years, and this fine instrument has served me flawlessly, always meeting any performance demands I have placed upon it. It still looks like new, as well. In addition to looking great, the silverplate gives this instrument immediate response; it speaks easier than the lacquered versions that I have auditioned. My teachers, fellow performers, and audiences have all given rave reviews to the wonderful sound of this Yamaha; you can create a tone quality ranging anywhere from melodiously dark to stridently brassy--the only limiting factor is you and your technique. While the included Yamaha 48 mouthpiece is well made and certainly adequate, the Schilke 51D really opens up the dynamic range and low register of this instrument and is highly recommended, giving the player an unmistakable and characteristic euphonium sound that's also never muddled or "woofy". Yes, the Yamaha seems pricey compared to competing models, but it's made well enough to last a lifetime--and to be enjoyed for a lifetime--in the hands of a caring player, thus making it an outstanding value.
This horn is wonderfully dark sounding with an incredible low range. I personally play with a Schilke 51DGP and love the tone I can get. The one tone complaint I have is that above the High f it gets thin sounding, otherwise wonderful. I have a range of almost five octaves on this horn and can produce most any style of music I wish. I have played three of these horns, and they all had almost identical tones and feels once broken in. Overall a wonderful Euphonium for the high school and advanced middle school euphonium player.
This horn is a great step up from any student horn. It keeps the receiver small so the small shank mouthpiece can be retained. It gets the player used to using more air without winding them right off the bat.
The pistons are large, which provides for a great full tone, but is a little difficult on young players or those with small hands. Though, with proper technique, it's very easy to adapt to. (The proper finger technique/positioning is also very important as if straight fingers are used, the valves will begin to stick due to being pushed against the casings awkwardly.)
I use a Bowman BB1 mouthpiece, and I love the rich tone, though the articulation gets a little muddy with it. (Standard 6.5ALs don't have this problem)
I have found that the first slide is flat, but that's probably because my pitch centre is naturally flat (especially with the Bowman).
The horn has served me well, though I'm looking to upgrade to the Besson Prestige within the year as it suits my needs more efficiently.
I bought my horn around a year after my high school bought one. The horn at the high school has deteriorated rather quickly as students tend to mistreat instruments. My horn, however, is still like-new, minus a couple insignificant scratches most people tell me I'm imagining, though I know they're there.
If you take good care of this horn, as with any instrument, it will last you a very very long time.
This is by far the best non-compensating Euphonium on the market. I believe the sound of this model rivals a lot of the compensating horns out there.
