Yamaha YFB822 5 Valve F Tuba

Custom Series, Key: F, Material: Yellow brass, Front action valves: 4 pistons/ 1 rotor, Bell: 446mm (17-1/2"), Bore: 19.5mm (0.768"), Finish: Clear lacquer

The 822 is acknowledged by many as the world's finest F tuba. It features a big warm powerful sound, and an even playability. The low range plays and sounds like that of big C tuba, yet the high range offers easy control with assured attacks. The 822 is favoured by both soloists and orchestral players alike.

Features:

Monel pistons

Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional baritone pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.

Hand-lapped pistons

Hand-lapping is a time-consuming finishing process which results in superior valve fit for noiseless, responsive action and easy tone changes.

Hand-lapped slides

Hand-lapping achieves the perfect balance between airtightness and smooth action.

Excellent projection

The rich sound of the YFB-822 is sure to come through the ensemble.

Response and intonation

The most complex passages are easier to facilitate with the faultless response and intonation found in the YFB-822.

Leadpipe

The nickel-silver leadpipe helps players obtain an exquisite tone while the leadpipe's dimensions and taper offer superior intonation and response.

Bell

The large bell size on the YFB-822 creates a warm sound with impressive power.

Slide positioning

All five valve slides face upward for easy access and adjustment.
