Unique in it's design, this next generation instrument features a twopiece gold brass bell to deliver a soft tone with outstanding presence, a Malone-Leadpipe and ergonomic 3rd valve slide trigger that will appeal to a new generation of players.Designed in consultation with Jeremy Pelt and Wayne Bergeron, this instrument was developed with the combined know-how of our New York and Los Angeles R&D facilities.
New trigger system
The newly designed third valve slide trigger is more ergonomic and will accommodate a wider range of hand sizes.
New leadpipe design
The YFH-8315G features a newly designed leadpipe, outer leadpipe area and a new connection brace between the leadpipe and the valve casing.
Vertical valve tubing
Traditionally, flugelhorns are made with vertical valve tubing.
Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional flugelhorn pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
Hand-lapped pistons and slides
Hand-lapping pistons and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.
The YFH-8315G flugelhorn is available in a silver-plated finish at an additional cost (YFH-8315GS).
