OVERVIEW

Classic traditional flugelhorn.

This Yamaha YFH-631G Professional Flugelhorn features traditional vertical valve tubing with Monel pistons that resist corrosion and retain precise fit and smooth action over many years. Hand-lapped pistons and slides ensure an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the pistons and casing or slide parts for smooth air flow and action as well as improved response and intonation. A movable mouthpiece receiver makes for easier tuning. Perfectly rounded, pressure-formed tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother airflow for an excellent scale and reduced resistance. A high-energy laser fuses the bell brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.

Great Horn - Great Value

By 

from North Hollywood, CA.

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

Great horn made even better by being an exceptional value. For the last ten years, I've been playing a Yamaha Bobby Shew YFH6310Z model and it has performed as expected - very well. Not as warm a sound as I would have liked, however. I have been looking at this model for awhile believing that the larger bore size (.433mm vs .413mm on the Shew) combined with the rose brass bell construction would give me the sound that I have been looking for...I was right. Sweet, warm tones making ballad tunes sound like, ah, sweet, warm ballads. Also, the YFH631G has better valve action even right out of the case and it's a little heavier than the Shew - which I like. I switch a lot between trumpet and flugel - sometimes within numbers and it seems easier to do with this horn (using a YTR17C4 trumpet mouthpiece and a YFL16F4 flugel mouthpiece). Bottomline: in my humble opinion, you don't need to spend the extra cash for a more expensive pro flugel to get the great sound you're looking for.

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

I have played a lot of trumpets and flugels over the years. Some costing less, and some costing a small fortune like the Taylor Phat Boy, Kanstul, and The Eclipse. But for all the hype the other guys want you to buy into the Yamaha is just as good. First off Yamaha has the best quality control, fit and finish. The horn is not a heavy or a light horn, but perfect and substatialy built. It plays in tune, has a warm mellow tone, slots well, valves don't stick, and neither do the slides. The flugel is not as popular or as tedious to build as a trumpet and Yamaha priced them accordingly. For the price of under 2 grand it will last a lifetime if taken care of and will sound great doing it. My Highest recomendation for a FLUGEL. Spend your money on lessons instead of a custom made horn, this flugel is nicer and built better than the so called hand built models.

Outstanding pro flugel at price of intermediate

Comments about Yamaha YFH-631G Series Bb Flugelhorn:

I pondered both thi, the Kanstul and the Shew Flugel but could not sort out a reason for a smaller bore flugel and could not come up with the scratch for the Kanstul and now that I have the Yamaha I do not feel I missed out trying any other horn. I am just in love with this baby. I have played for years and started up recently but when I got into a lot of imrprov.I wanted a Flugel to artistically express many bluesy ballads where I could join in but the key here is ballads, slower songs that call for that bar rooms smokey sound only a rich flugel can give. Well this horn, at a steal of a price, and I really mean that, does not disappoint. It is easy to play as is i have now found typical of Yamaha trumpets and flugels. I can play naturally up to a high E or F and with the (trigger/4th valve) I can keep right in key in the lower register...now i find myself wishing my trumpets had one of those triggers..although a flugel runs far sharper in the lower range. There is also a bit of an issue in spit build up, you need to clear the horn on all 3 valves and it builds up quite a bit over the trumpet I find. I have 3 trumpets, a Strad, a Yamaha LA and a Bach 37 and for whatever reason the yamahas realy need those spit valves...but its not unmanageable- its just that the bore of this baby will make it gurgle if you do not clear (sorry for that but it surprised me a bit- only draw back and not sure its not something on all flugels).. The tone whether owed in part credit to my playing- the mouth piece that came with it is PERFECT, I can not suit a better piece to it and I usually play shallower mouth pieces but you need the depth here or it changes smoky barroom voice she sings with.... the tone may also be due to the rosy copper content I hear the bell has (I also opted for lacquer as I did NOT want to brighten the tone). Result, a deep rich flugel sound. When I condenser microphone it with the Yamaha YC7 microphone I can really hit some of the ballads I had just known the flugel would blow away any trumpet on. I mean you can not hit a killer blues lead on a flugel so each horn has its place...Examples are Herbie Hancock's "Possibilities" ballad "DON'T EXPL:AIN"--it just hits it even better than a saxaphone could IMHO and does not rough up vocals.....I am almost so in love with this I keep repeating the phrase "your trumpet is your wife" your flugel is your 'mistress" and boy I am spending a lot of time sneaking around behind the wife's back! SO much so i had to go out and get a Schilke Faddis...just to stay in love with my trumpet equally well..now that is another love story for the ages...
