"A really fine instrument"

I bought this horn after returning from a tuba/euphonium conference where I tried out every major high-end euphonium, including Willsons and Bessons. This one outplayed them all. Superb tone and ease of playing through all registers, beautiful, resonant sound, secure and compact valve action. Yamaha seems to have made significant "ergonomic" improvements when they designed the 842S -- the first three valves are closer together, and there is less of a "reach-around" to the fourth valve. As a result, this horn is easier to hold and play than the 642S, which means less fatigue over a long rehearsal or performance. My second choice would have been one of the new Bessons -- the ones being made in Germany -- but none of the horns that I tried out really measured up to this one. So far, I haven't found anything about it that I don't like.

high school anything with a euphonium part Fairfax
10 people out of 46 found this review helpful

I play a school-owned 842S in my school's top band. First off, it looks amazing and the case complements it well. People in the lower band always remark on how nice the euph looks when I pull it out of the case. The valves are quick and only need oiling about every week. The instrument responds readily in all registers if you have enough air for it, which is not a small amount because of the large bore. But with enough air, you are rewarded with amazing tone and the ability to get very brassy if you're capable. It is more difficult to hit the high register than other euphoniums, but with a lungful of air even an intermediate player can hit a high Bb with relative ease. An experienced player will find that hitting a Db or D above that not overly difficult. In addition, the low range of the instrument is fantastic. For me, double pedal F's and Eb's aren't difficult, and when your low range is developed, you can hit the B natural below that easily, provided you start on the F. The euphonium also has quick response and amazing intonation. There is no water key on the 1st valve tuning slide, which is puzzling since the model below the 842S, the 642, has one. Although the mouthpiece the instrument comes with will do for most repertoire, I suggest investing in a better one. I personally switched to a Denis Wick SM4. When coming up from middle school and auditioning with a YEP-321S, I got 3rd chair top band. When I was using the 842S in the following fall auditions, I achieved 1st chair with ease, and I'm only in 9th grade! Although good playing helped a lot, I couldn't have done it without the 842S.

I've been playing Euphonium for nearly seven years now and I just recently purchased a Yamaha 842S. In high school I played on a Besson Prestige. The two are very different. The Besson favors the high range and the Yamaha favors the lower range. I like my lower range notes. they are very broad on the Yamaha. I can still pop out the fifth ledger line Eb easy. This horn is flat out astonishing.

I have been playing the euphonium for 10 years and I purchased a Yamaha YEP 842 euphonium two years ago and I absolutely love it! I have led the Euphonium section for two years at my college and owning this instrument has made me love playing even more! It has such a great clean tone and has extended my range dramatically. I would suggest this instrument to anyone who is serious about playing the euphonium at a college or professional level. A great instrument if you have the money for it. I have found that it is worth every dollar.

Does the YEP-842S come with a case included? If not, which case would you recommend for someone who would take it on the road and on airplanes a lot?
